I'm sorry for your loss

Would you like to tell us more about your pal and maybe show us a picture?

:sad: I'm so, so sorry for your loss! That is entirely too young to go. :grouphug: I, too, would love to hear more about him and see a pic or two. :angel:

Hi there

I will find a picture to post tonight

I adopted renton from the Toronto Humane Society in 1997, during the yearly cat crisis. As a 12 week old kitten, his ears had grown much faster than the rest of him, and he looked like a little bobcat!. He grew quite fast, and was a very big boy by the time he was a year old (long and solid at 15 lbs) Although he was possessive of me as his only owner, he was also very playful and enjoyed his toys.

He was a good companion, and a good friend, always rolling around on his back to greet me when I came home. And, as a Tabby, he was very vocal, little chirps and meows whenever you petted him or called him. His absolute favourite was a nice brushing and he would purr loudly.

I have never had to have a pet put to sleep before (he was suffering from a bone marrow disease and extrememely anemic)and it was a difficult day, but I know it was the right thing for him, not for me.

I will certainly miss him.

Sounds like you both spent some special treasured times together.

I had the vet make paw prints of my dog when he passed away and asked for a clipping of his hair. You may want to do the same , if you still can.

I keep my Rusty in an urn on the livingroom wall unit next to his picture!

DaddyG,thank's for telling us a little more about Renton,it sounds like he had a wonderful but unfortunately shortened life.
A picture would be nice,although knowing he's gone will probably open the floodgates again :sad: But that's ok,Renton is suffering no more...
