I had other plans for R day, but…

This morning I woke to our cat, Monty, lying on the floor wheezing. His neck was wet and he had a hard time breathing. I took him to the vet where they found his lungs were filled with fluid and he had a clot blocking most of the blood to his lower body. Long story short, we had to put him down.

Monty was one of the sweetest, mellowest, quietest cats I’ve met. Of course he was quirky, which was part of his charm. When he was still very young, he broke one of his hips. In spite of that, he got around for years, still managing to explore and get into mischief.

I’ll miss you, Monty. R.I.P.

      It is sad. Last night his brother seemed to be roaming around the house looking for him. I do like to think his life with us was pretty good.

    I’m sorry to hear this. 🙁 As the owner of 4 cats, I know how much happiness they bring.

      Thank you. We now have 4 cats (remaining), but I still feel Monty’s absence. They’re all so different and have been with us long enough that when one goes it leaves a hole.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. He was a handsome kitty, and it sounds like he had a very good life with you. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss.

      Thank you for your condolences. It’s funny how attached we can get to those furry little critters.
