The dogs spend about an hour each day licking him to welcome him back. I think they saw Abby and me crying over him so much they are trying to comfort us. He is eating and functioning well. He lost a lot of weight but we will try to pack that back on him

I pulled his sutures with vet help over FaceTime and he is doing well. He dropped about 15% of his weight but we have a nice rich food supplement for him to fatten him back up before winter. He is still a bit sleepier than usual, if that’s even possible.

Home and a Happy.

The queen bee Black cat still hisses at him for disappearing but is adjusting. Dogs are ecstatic to see him

Well, with heavy heart I had to drive him up to Saratogato say good bye. He took a sudden worse turnon a Thursday night, and this morning I knew we had run out of options.

Abby and I spent the afternoon holding him,he wasn’t up for much walking, but just purred andpurredand purred andfelt loved.

Sleep well my little Prince. 2009 abandoned under a deck in the dead of winter, to 2020 and cherished every minute

That's awful! Losing a fur baby is so hard. I really hoped he had overcame whatever was wrong. Be sure to give the other babies extra love! I'm so sad... June

I’m sad tonight but swaddled in 27 pounds of cat fur Babies And 60 pounds of Husky Lab at my side. I have much to remember well from my little Gray one.

I love how he used to commandeer the huge dog bed

Ona really solemn note, Peter and I are the only surviving males inthe house, so I’ll have the Brain twice as often !

" How we treat cats in this life, determines how we are treated in the next. "

( Probably applies to dogs too.)

Very sorry for your loss.
