Here am deh latest nooz frum KCTailkinker:
Sunny has gotten worse again but I got at least a few days. I cannot watch him any more not eating and being so weak. I have an appointment on Friday at 4pm. Chuck will take Sunny and me to the Heartland SPCA. Since my vet retired and I have financial constraints, Heartland will help me. They asked if I would go this afternoon but I had a class but more importantly, I am not ready. Sunny may be ready but I am not. However, I understand that he mustn’t suffer and I will not let him suffer. My heart is not in this at all. He is the last tie to my Mother. Sooty, his brother, went over the bridge on 2009. Sunny will see him again and also my mom and my dad, Mama Dofy and Daddy Jack. Pyewacket will be sad as well, since Sunny took care of her as his baby girl. Inky and Sunny were the “Second-Hand Lions.” Two batchelor cats who had a baby girl foisted on them by me. One loved playing with Pye and Sunny was the “Mom” of the older cats. I will miss him but I now worry so much if he is suffering, is he sleeping OK, is he hungry but doesn’t care because of his problems. I check to see if he is breathing each time I look at him.
God has watched over us. Human and animal. I’ve always told folks that if God had no humor then why did he create cats and kittens. You know the passage of the Bible that God watches over the sparrow. So if he watches over such little birds then he watches even larger creatures, like cats. So many of the therapists I have had for the last 3 years loved him and some named him as “Loverboy.” All because he is a sweet cat and how he would assist with my therapy.
I have made the appointment and I explained to them what I wanted to do for Sunny. For those of you, his real name was Sunkist and named by my dad. Sunny was apt for him as a sunny little character. He would cry though when Mom had to go to the hospital a few times before I moved in to take care of Mom. As time went on, I assumed all care for my Inky and Mom’s Sunny and Sooty. When Mom had to go to the nursing home, I told Mom that I would do my best to take care of Sunny and Sooty. So, I now believe the best way I can take care of Sunny is to take him so he can have some relief and I can have someone gently go over the bridge.
My eyes…they leak. I have been crying all week. I thought he would have passed last Saturday night but then I had a small miracle for a short reprieve but now it will be time on Friday.
Your prayers, beams and thoughts are still needed as I do the hardest thing I can do since I had taken Mom to the nursing home. You are the best Cheezfrens and are the best friends ever!
Thank you so much!
