Mr Tai Ct -a life well lived, a rest much deserved

As many of you know, Tai has fought a winning battle over his multiple illnesses these past 5 months. Tai had a good several months fighting thyroid, liver and kidney problems.

He felt particularly well the past couple of weeks after a vitamim shot. He ate voraciously up until the end - getting anything he wanted to eat, even if it was not on my list of premium food. : - )

This morning Tai had a seizure and I am so glad I was still home.He could not get up - he spent an hour lying on my stomach (his favorite sleeping spot) and hearing me telling him what a good boy he had been.

I told him it was OK to go and see Taz again. Mostly he did not move, but a couple of times he meowed softly or hooked his paw around my arm.

I let him know I was still with him since I was not sure he could see.

He had a second seizure just as we got to the vet's office and drew his last breath before going inside.


19 years - good job, Tai. Good Kitty. Be free of illness and age now.

Bonnie

I am so sorry for your loss. 19 years was a good and long life. I am sure every moment since he found you he felt loved.

Re: Mr Tai Ct -a life well lived, a rest much deserved

Bonnie,

So sorry to hear of Tai's passing but I'm glad that you were with him and happy that he had such a long and wonderful life!



ETA: I just called Cleo when I read this b/c she had gone out back to get some cool air. When she heard my voice she called back to me in her special answer voice and it brought tears to my eyes. What wonderful companions these animals are--I'm so glad that you are celebrated Tai's life.
