    Unhappy Fister is at the RB - 20/5-96 - 2/2-2013

    It was with a very heavy heart I went to the hospital where Fister is and had him put to sleep at 13.20. It hurts SO bad itís unbelievable!

    My neighbor, who is a nurse came with me, she was a good support and could explain the test results to me again.

    Fister went peacefully. I spent half an hour with him and I had brought his catnip toy, his brush, his pillow and my night shirt to lay on. There were no one other than us, so I had time to say properly goodbye. The last thing Fister did was to lick his catnip toy. I held his head and his paw, kissed him a thousand times and told him how much I love him and wished him a safe journey to the RB.

    I miss him so much!!! My flat feels empty and I feel I have lost the ones who are closest to me.

    To me, Fister was the sweetest and most handsome cat in the whole world and itís so unfair that he is not with me.

    I want to go to bed and reach out for him - and he would lay in front of me with his paws on my arm, then go and lay next to my head when the lights were turned off. Oh, how I will miss that and his headbumpies in the mornings.

    Fisterís liver was not working properly, there were several things wrong and he was being fed and getting water through a tube in his leg. The vet said it would be a bad idea to take him home, if only for a couple of days. So I had to make the hardest decision I ever have made. I donít think Iíll ever stop crying.

    I have scanned in the tests he had done, will attach them here:

    Rest in peace, beloved Fister, now reunited with your beloved Jonza. The pain and struggle are now over, but do, please, send some comforting rumbling purrs to Randi when she sleeps, so she knows you still love her, and will always be with her, in her heart and mind.

    And of course, you will always have your page as Cat of the Day!

    Oh, Randi, I am so very, very sorry. My heart goes out to you. I wish I could reach through the screen and hug you and let you cry on my shoulder.

    Rest in peace, dearest Fister, loved so much. You are free of pain and illness now at the Rainbow Bridge with John. Please send some purrs down to Randi to comfort her and let her know you are waiting to welcome her Home.. One Fine Day.

    Randi, my heart hurts for you. This is a struggle to bear I know. Please know you did all you could and Fister knew that. He went in peace on wings of love to the Bridge.

    All of us are with you and are here for you.

    Fister, Godspeed to the Bridge, honey. You are so loved. Send purrs of peace to your Mom - she'll miss you so.

    Love, Maggie, Coop & Pinot

    Randi, I thought about you and Fister most of the morning, hoping against hope that some miracle could spare
    you the sorrow of having to say the final goodbye to your sweet boy. It was not to be. I am glad that you did have those
    last minutes to hold him & whisper your goodbyes in person. I know that made a difference to Fister. He knew he was
    not alone. By now Fister has joined John & feels no pain. Rest In Peace sweet boy.

    You have my deepest sympathy. (((Hugs)))

    I am sitting here crying for Fister and I know what ever I write won't begin to express how much all of us loved Fister.

    Fister is now with Jon and both are having a wonderful reunion.

    May Fister play hard at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for the time that you will be reunited.

    Randi - I'm so sorry. I know what you're going thru, and not a day has gone by that I haven't shed at least a few tears for Sparky - and he passed on last October. The hurt just never goes away, tho it will lessen in time. {{{Hugs}}}

    RIP dear Fister. Goodnight - and may you be blessed with sweet and happy dreams for all eternity.

    I am heartbroken for your loss. Fister was one of the grand gentlemen of PT, and we won't ever forget him.

    Randi, I was afraid all day that you had to let Fister go. I cannot tell you how sorry I am. And it is so close to the date when you lost John eight years ago. I really hope they are together now.
    Sending hugs and love.

    My heart continues to break for you. I am so sorry to hear that we have lost Fister, one of my favorite orangies. How I remember well the taming of Fister over the years, from the boy that liked to be outside, to the boy that became comfortable in the flat. Though different in colour, Fister always reminded me of RB Tex, my heart kitty. May you allow all of us to comfort you, though right now nothing soothes, and know many, many of us are praying for you, holding you tight in our thoughts. I just know Jon and Fister have reunited.

    Much, much love,
