Attila says goodbye

Some of you may remeber Attila's story... a 4 y.o. Italian ginger cat who suffered from a rare and terrible disease. Despite 1 year of struggle, love, pain, hope, international efforts to save his life, the little Pirate Cat moved on to the Raibow Bridge two days ago.
His family and friends are still shocked by his loss, despite the fact that he did his best to let us know that he was ready to go... Attila is happy where he is now, no more pain and suffering for this brave boy who taught us love, pride, courage and dignity and left us a legacy of hope and friendship and love.
His website stays online, because we hope his story can help those unlucky cats who may be struggling with the same disease.
All links and requests for help and donations were removed, since Attila doesn't need that where he is now, so I hope I can post a link to his website here without breaking any forum rules:
If I wasn't allowed to link it, please remove the link... anyway if you google "Attila the cat" you'll find it right away... If you wish to leave a message to his family, who is reading the guestbook day by day and finds a lot of comfort in the words that Attila's friends are writing there, you are more than welcome.
Thanks to those who will send a thought of love to Attila and his family... we will never forget him!

I remember his story, too. I'm so sorry, Marta78.

Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Marta, I am so sorry to hear about Attila. :sad: My deepest condolences to you for your loss.

I did not read your original post until now and it is truly heartbreaking. I have bookmarked your website and thank you for maintaining it. The information will be invaluble for others that may encounter the same problem.

Again my deepest sympathy....Attila will always leave pawprints on your heart.

I'm sorry for the loss of your Attila. Rest easy in knowing your baby is free of any pain or health issues and waiting for you to join him someday.

There are only two rules at my house: House rule #1. Cats rule. House rule #2. See rule #1.
