    My sweet baby SOURPATCH went to the rainbow bridge this morning

    I had to put my baby down this morning. he had lost another pound since he was there
    in Oct. The vet felt a tumor in his intestines that was not there 2 months ago.
    He was FIV pos. so the steroids would not have been good for his immune system.
    He was down to 6.5 pounds
    I have been crying all day.
    Play hard at the bridge my sweet boy I love you baby

    Thank-you everyone for your kind words.

    Freedom he was about 13 or 14. He was a stray that I use to see walking through the yards.I would always call to him but
    he would keep walking about 5yrs. this went on, then finally the summer of 2007 he walk up to the porch looking for food.
    he was in bad shape. covered with ticks and big knots in his fur. It took the whole summer but we were finally able to gain his trust and when winter came I took him to the vet to be checked and fixed. The vet estimated him to be about 8-9 then
    This is right after he got fixed. he was about 12 pounds.

    Thank you
    catmandu , Randi and Sindy.
    your wordS made me smile and cry at the same time.

    Sindy
    I just did some posting in the cat of the day and read your blog
    that was on a link in Sams cat of the day postings.
    Your story made me cry that you and Charcoal lost Sylvester.
    and that Charcoal missed Sylvester so much and then you also lost Charcoal.

    I am happy that you were able to open your home and your heart to not 1 but 2 kittens

    My first cat I had, a stray I named Beasty Girl was home all alone.
    I decided to get a kitten to keep her company.
    The kitten Twilight followed her around and annoyed her.
    My Sweet Angel was hit by a car in front of the house, she was only 9 months old.
    I was devistated I cried everyday for a month on the way to work, when I got home,
    in the shower ect.
    The cat who didn't really pay her no mind,was walking around looking for her, calling her
    and she lost about a pound or two. She was missing her as much I was.
    My husband talked me into going to the shelter and getting another kitten for her and for me.
    Littlebit helped us both heal

    Bless you for taking pain upon yourself to spare your beloved Sourpatch. He is SO blessed to have YOU for his human! He's waiting at the Bridge, gloriously alive, perfectly healthy, and blissfully happy. Try to be happy for him even as you cry for your self - and you do need to cry. The pain will ease in time, but the scar will remain until you are reunited with him - both of you whole and happy. May Sourpatch's Creator hold you gently and lead your heart to peace.
