Newz frum ManfredMom

Dear ICHC friends:
I am sad to tell you that Manfred, my friend and companion of 18 years, went to the rainbow bridge about 3 weeks ago.  His renal failure was really bad.  I decided that I could no longer spend the money on a cat who was no longer enjoying life.  My brother took me to the vet.  Good thing he did because I was devastated.  I still am – crying as I type.  I miss him horribly, going to his “private dining room” to get his dish even this morning.  He was a good cat and I’m sure he’s happier.

Since I knew for quite some time that I was going to put him down, I’d been looking for cats on-line.  I was actually looking for another black cat, but when I went to PetSmart, a little orange tabby stole my heart. He’s a dog-cat like Manfred was, but sweeter, if you could imagine that! he’s 5 months old and cute as a button.  I’m attaching a pic for you to see.  His name is Cedric Luigi Gonzales von Butterscotch III.  He fills part of the hole in my heart.

  1. Ai am sorry foar yoar loss, and haphaphappy that yu fownd Cedric. An ai haz a shore dat Cedric haz a happe dat yu did.

  2. I iz sure dat Manfred am happy to gibbing hiz mom to Cedric. I am remindered uv dis:

    Before humans die, they write their last will and testament and give their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws I could do the same, this is what I’d give:

    – To a poor and lonely stray I’d give my happy home, my bowl, my cozy bed, my soft pillows and all my toys; the lap, which I loved so much, and the tender loving hands; the hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which called my name; and I’d will to the sad and scared shelter animal the place I had in my human’s loving heart of which there seemed no bounds.

    So when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.” Instead, go find an unloved animal — one whose life has held no joy or hope and give my place to him. This is the only thing I can give – the love I left behind.

    Losing such a dear companion is always hard and they can never really be replaced, but a new companion to love helps dim the pain just a little bit, and fill your heart with a new joy.

  10. I’m so sorry your beloved Manfred has gone beyond your ability to see him, but now he is also beyond pain and debility. and in his passing he sent you a new and wonderful little friend, who looks like he is going to be a charmer of the first order!
    Goodbye Manfred, Welcom Cedric {{{{{{{ManfredMom}}}}}}
