To all those who have followed my life and my postings, I have to inform of the death of someone VERY close to me. Horus, my little black and white kitten, had to be put down saturday. We rushed him to the E.R. Vet, they pulled 200ccs of fluid from around his lungs (they're not sure what from) and he still had laboured breathing.
The best prognosis was if it was caused by trauma, and that still involved a $2500 surgery, and his odds were still only so-so. Everything else was fatal. So, I made the hard choice and had them put him down. The vet lady was so nice, she even let me push the plunger on the syringe, so he only got a little at a time - so he went out high and happy.
It was a VERY hard thing to do. He would ALWAYS sleep with me, under the covers, and groom my arm-hair. He was my heart, my solace. (Zaphod being my strength, my protector.) I shall miss him dearly. He would have only been two years old in March.
Though, I've seen him, at least once, since he's passed, and can still feel his "presence". I think he will always linger with me, coming and going and playing his mischief, just like Aleister still does. That is at least somewhat comforting.
"One of the sweetest ever born"
I love you, my little boy, and I miss you like crazy. I was there when you were born - I delivered you, and I was there when you passed from this world - I "pulled the plug". Your life brought happiness and joy into mine, and nothing will ever fill the void you left. Always remeber how much I love you, and never forget me.
Oh! The pain of having your children go before you.
