R.I.P. Tigger


Today, in one hour I have to take my 17 year old pal to the vets where they will send him off to his quiet rest. I love him. That is all I can say right now.

Thanks Savannah. It is over now. He left my arms purring and that is how I want to remember him.

Oh, Prudence, that is so sad. Poor guy. Be glad that you gave him a lifetime of love. He sure was a good looking fella.
Big hugs.

Dear Prudence said...

Thanks Dive, He was the balls! He taught every kitten I ever brought home how to hunt by bringing them 1/2 live things to torture. He was a quite presence. I will miss him.

That's sad, Prudence, but at least he went out in your arms. Seventeen years is a good long life.

Dear Prudence said...

Thanks Utsav, yes he did have the life of Riley.

Prudence, I am so sorry. I had to do that with/for my cat Smoky a couple of years ago. It's a tough thing to go through.

I'm so so sorry, Prudence. I have just realized pet love in the past few months and if I had to take my dog, Socks, in.....I would be a liquid mess.

He was a handsome guy....

What a beautiful cat he was Prudence. I can understand your sadness; I'm typing with my oldest cat (she's only 10) sitting on my lap. 17 was a grand age and his last thoughts were of having a cuddle with Mom. Hugs to you dear.

Thank you all for your kind words. The vets were also thoughtful and took a plaster cast of his foot print and a clip of his beautiful grey coat, put them in a pretty silk ouch with his name and date on it and sent it to me. Of course that set off another round of tears but thoughtful still.
