My cat Shinji is dying

One of my blukats is not going to make it. He is eight and a half years old. He became very ill but did not show signs until just recently. I did not know he was ill until now. I don't know what I will do with this blog. Having these two kitty brothers has been the one good thing that has been steady in my life. I was trying to get myself up to posting a bit more but now... I am heart broken.

  1. *hugs* I'm really sorry to hear this. It's always heartbreaking to lose a pet, especially one who has been by your side for so long.

    1. Thank you Els. I wish he would be with me longer than eight years but his heart is pretty bad. This is so difficult because he could get a little better with the medication I am giving him but he isn't. I will keep trying to help him as I can.

  2. I'm catching up with my favourite blogs after my holiday, and I'm almost scared to ask ... how is Shinji doing? I hope he's OK, and that - if the end comes - it will arrive quietly and painlessly.

    Be gentle with him, and with yourself.

    1. Sadly he was only with us for two days after I got him from the pet hospital. He went downhill fast and I had to call someone because I didn't want him to have pain if it went that way.

      Not easy but I know he wanted to be with me and his brother Kenji. And that I did all that I could. Out a little more money than I would like to be but there are worse things I could have spent it on.

      Kenji and I are trying to deal. Right now the hardest thing is Kenji keeps looking for him. So I am spoiling him and giving him a lot of attention.

      Thank you for your thoughts.

    2. "Kenji keeps looking for him." That made me sad.

      This may sound a bit silly, or not, but I'll light some incense next time I pass by Senso-ji for all of you.

    3. Doesn't sound silly at all. That is a very kind thing to do. Thank you.
