    Goodbye gentle Mike

    Mike had been going down hill for a few days. I just talked to the vet.
    Where before he had loved being petted, he got agressive and not responding to meds. His head tilt was worse and he wouldn't eat. He is suffering and she can't help him. She had tested him for feline leukemia and that other disease which I can't remember the name of. He was negative for those.

    She said she is afraid he has rabies. She just has a gut feeling about it. So she suggested he has to be put down. She will send him off to be checked after he is gone. Poor baby he fought so hard.

    Mike I am so sorry I let you down. Ike will meet you at the bridge with your other little sibby.
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    Oh no! I am doing everything I can to not burst into tears here at work.
    I am so sorry. You did everything (and then some) for him. He will be reunited with his brother at the bridge and they can romp around and play together forever.

    RIP Mike
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Rest in peace, little Mikie. You and your sibbies are together again and no longer suffering.

    I am so very sorry, MoFF. You tried everything you could, and Mike fought so hard too. You have done so much for this little family of kitties and for so many others. It is especially sad to lose Mike after things seemed to be looking up so much for him.

    God bless you, MoFF, and send you peace and comfort. There will be a wonderful reunion party.. One Fine Day..

    Oh MOFF I am so so sorry.

    You did all you could for Mike, and he knew love and cuddles because he trusted you and you got him to the vet.

    Many {{{{hugs}}}}

    ETA: I just read your post in Cat General. Rabies can take a while to show up - or maybe his little body just couldn't fight off the infections any more.

    More HUGS for you and your furbabies.

    You did all that you could MOFF - you left no stone unturned. Mike knows and loves you for that.

    RIP little Mike. Find Ike and play together forever at RB.

    was in your power to do for him ( and for many others as well) I am so
    sorry this didn't work out for the little tuxie boy.

    My life is God filtered :)
    I lit two candles, one for Mike and Ike and one for MOFF.

    My heart hurts....
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
