This week has been rough emotionally for me. We had been dealing with a sick kitty since last Wednesday.
We spent the week trying everything we could to get him to eat more which he tried but he just wasn't eating much at all. I gave him tons of attention and he seemed happy and content but also not himself.
We did blood work (twice) and all the results came back negative. Then Thursday morning we took him in for an Ultra Sound and when our Vet called us the outcome was not good. He had lost yet another pound and she had found a rather large mass in his abdomen that she felt was most likely cancer. So at that point we opted to Euthanize him. It broke my heart.
He got the name Spooky-Boo because he was very timid and would hide whenever anyone new came to the house.
He loved people though once he got to know them. He loved attention of any kind (especially tummy rubs). He had lots of nicknames, Boo, Pukey Boo (because he often ate food and puked it right back up), Badger Boo because of the white streak running down the middle of his head. Those are just a few. He had such a gentle loving nature and the sweetest meow and he loved to purr.
Coleen dressed him up once in a cowboy outfit when he was young.
Here he is look out over the stairway. He had such beautiful eyes. They were such a pretty green color.
He enjoyed play and sleep time with the other cats. Here he is with Bandit who is now much bigger then he was in these shots.
There is so much more I could say and while he didn't live as long as many of our other cats he packed a lot of love into the 8 years he was with us. He will be long remembered and forever loved in our house.
Rest in Peace sweet boy.

I am very sorry to read this. I didn't know Spooky-Boo but no cat could look so unique and not have a personality to match. Eight years is indeed too short a time, but what amount is long enough to enjoy such creatures? My thoughts are with you. Godspeed, Spooky-Boo.ReplyDelete
So sorry you had to say goodbye to such a beloved and handsome cat. Hugs!!!!!!ReplyDelete

I am so sorry for the loss of your Spooky Boo. 8 years is not long enough, although I would be remiss to say, no amount of time is long enough. Your photography is beautiful and your love shows through in the lovely photos, I found much comfort in having taken so many photos of my cats over the years to look back on them after they left me, I hope the same for you. Godspeed Spooky Boo.ReplyDelete
What great memories you have. The pictures show us a wonderful and handsome guy. His life was indeed short and this is so tough on us. At least we have the wonderful memories. We are richer for having them even for a short time. Now he will live forever in your heart.ReplyDelete
We are so sorry that Spooky had to leave you so soon. We send you and his fursibs purrayers as you mourn him.ReplyDelete

Ida - I am so sorry. Our furbabies leave a hole that nothing can fill.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful kitty. I'm so sorry you had that experience. It's so hard to make that decision even when, logically, we know it's for the best. Spooky-Boo was very fortunate to have had such caring fur baby parents. My heart goes out to you. 💜ReplyDelete

My heart breaks for you. Our fur babies are family, and it hurts so much to lose them. I'm so sorry he went so fast. He was such a sweet beautiful boy! You captured some gorgeous pictures of him that I know you will treasure always! Hugs to you... it has almost been a year since I lost my precious Simba. I still miss him so much. They have a place in our heart, always.ReplyDelete
I saw that you had this loss the other day on FB and meant to come. He sure was a beautiful cat, and I swear I think you can see his personality in his eyes. I love that first B&W photo so much...not that I don't love the others. Just meant to get over here earlier and say I am sorry for your loss.ReplyDelete
