    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'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.

    Randi...I am crying...HUG...a long hug. You must know you did every single thing you could for your most beloved Fister. Remember his love for you.

    Fister, do let your mom know you are safe and free...comfort her in some way from where you are.

    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,

    Reading this has made me feel as though I have been kicked in the stomach in the worst possible way and the pain just goes on and on.

    Randi you are in my prayers and you know that John has greeted Fister and he is now pain free and feeling like his old self.

    You have angels around you Randi - just stop and feel them and let them do their healing work for you.

    You are loved and a dear friend.

    Randi as with others my heart breaks for you and I feel the pain you are feeling for your loss of such a dear, sweet boy. The only consolation is knowing he is now with Jonza.

    Godspeed dear Fister - it was an honour and a pleasure knowing you. Sleep sweetly.

    Oh, Randi, It is so hard to write through the tears. Fister was one of my favorite Pet Talk kitties. I know how big the hole is in your heart right now. Please know you did the best thing for him. He is with Jon now and they both know how much you love them. Prayers for peace for you!!!
