moar nooz

dis bad nooz. ah lets meowmy type it. Hi everyone. It saddens me to tell you the Travis's older brofur Siggie has left us for the Rainbow Bridge. Wednesday February 15, 2012....I was home sick in the evening (I usually attend Wednesday night church services) and around 6:00 PM, Siggie seemed perfectly fine. He was on the bed snuggling with me (as usual) and jumped down at some point (not unusual). The around 7:30 or so, I heard this very strange cry and Siggie came from around from the other side of the bed and plopped down on the area rug in front of my dresser...at which point he just lay there and was panting very heavily but it sounded like he was wheezing or something. Very odd sounding....his tongue was out and he was literally panting. I thought maybe he was upset -- maybe Travis was harassing him (sometimes he would do that). I gave it a few seconds but the panting didn't stop. I got up to check on him, and when I touched his hind legs, he cried out again in a very strange way. Then he tried to get up but he couldn't stand on his hind legs....he dragged them behind him instead. I quickly got dressed and rushed him to a local late hour vet -- where I was told that he was in end stage cardiac failure (fluid all over inside -- CHF)and he had thrown a clot which is what paralyzed him. due to his age (he was almost 12 years old) and due to the severity of his cardiac condition, the vet suggested I put him to sleep. As much as I wish I could have done otherwise, I had to agree....but by the time they prepped him for the shot, he had already left me. I'll post one of the last photos I took of him....he was a very special boy, and I will miss him forever. I have his ashes, and the vet took some ink paw prints for me and gave me some fur too. Goodnight, my darling Siggie. Mommy and Daddy will miss you forever. May 2000 - Feb 15, 2012. -- Terri

  7. I'm so, so sorry. More than I can possibly write. I lost my Chumley to a blood clot--it cut off circulation to his lower body and he couldn't stand, literally was screaming in pain. There was nothing the emerg vet could do, so I understand completely. It's not something you ever forget, and it's been over 5 years now.

    Please know I'm sending hugs and universal Light and my two boys send their purrs.

    Peace and Blessings.
