The Day After

Beautiful graphic by Ann Adamus.  xoxo

Life is so different without Bhu: not so rich, not so fun. But this morning as I was making coffee I looked up out the window and saw big, huge, puffy white snowfluffs! A message from Bhu; he knew how much joy the first snowfall brings to me. He is saying to me, "It's okay mom; I'm good!" 

Reading the comments on yesterday's post, I'm really challenged to find the best words to communicate just how grateful we are for your love and sympathy.  So many of you have gone through this at least once and you know the deep sadness.  I love that we have this community that cares and supports each of its members, human and feline (and canine).  xoxo Patty

au revoir, doux chaton

We loved him and he loved us.
PATTY:  We had to say au revoir to our sweet kitty this morning, just about an hour ago.  Some of you are very familiar with this particular kind of sadness and grief; it's a heartbreak.  I will miss my bud.

Everything that could possibly be done for him was done, but he was just not going to get well.  There were too many issues.  We were so lucky to live close to a major veterinary hospital where the absolute best state-of-the-art care was given.  We had the chance to spend time with him, give him noms of chicken,  and bid farewell before he proceeded on his journey.

Thank you, furrends, for your purrayers and concern.  It made a difference and we love you!  xoxo

Today: Not So Good

Bhu wants to know "Why you takin' my picture?  Take me home!"

Poor Bhu appears to be tethered on both sides.  He is not having a good day.

Getting lots of attention, but none of it feels good.

PATTY:  I think a picture is worth a thousand words.  Today Bhu is getting a transfusion and if he is not feeling better after that, we don't know.  We visited today and he is just sort of in a stupor, but he did respond to pets and ear scritches.  If you can, please keep him in your heart and purrayers!  xoxo
