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.
