    Pumpkin - a handsome orangeman, gone way too soon

    About 2am this morning, our Pumpkin came on the bed and woke me up, in obvious respiratory distress - I got him to the emergency vet's as quickly as possibe, they found high white count and some fluid around heart and lungs, possiby pneumonia, but he coded before they could stabilize him. He was only about 3 years old, just had his annual in March and was in perfect health- and yesterday afternoon he was rolling in my lap getting pets and purring like mad. Totally unfair- he was taken way too soon. Play hard at Rainbow Bridge Pumpkin- we're really gonna miss you.....the good Lord took a handsome, sweet, affectionate cat for some higher purpose...... if I can figure out how to do so, I'll try to post pics of him, he was the most brilliantly colored orangeman I've ever met, with tufted ears and a white spot on his chest.......

    So sorry to hear this. Rest in peace, Pumpkin, and send your humans rumbling purrs from the Rainbow Bridge so they know you arrived there safely.

    bowlkat, our condolences.

    Oh Bowlcat, I am so sorry to learn that you lost your precious, loving, and beloved Pumpkin so suddenly, and at such a young age, too. My very deepest sympathy to you and your family and all who love him and miss him and grieve him so very much. May your precious memories and keepsakes help to bring you comfort.

    Pumpkin is at the Rainbow Bridge now, a lovely, glorious Angel, pain-free and healthy again, playing with so many dear Angel friends and sending down love to you.

    Dearest Pumpkin Angel, please send some Angelic purrrs to the hearts of your dear Bowlcat and family and friends to remind them that all is well, love is eternal, you are watching over them always, and you will all be together again, One Fine Day...

    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.

    I am so sorry about Pumpkin's sudden passing!
    Even though his stay with you was way too short, you made his life perfect with endless love and he returned it ten-fold.
