Today Gizmo went to be with his best buddy Thom in that happy place where old kitties go...the happy mousing grounds. It was a sad morning but we had to do what was best for him.
He has been so frail and hardly eating..his last good meal was 3 tablespoons of ice cream..which he really enjoyed, on Friday. Since them it was mostly water. He remained bright and coherent and still using his box .
Yesterday I came home from work and he could not use the lower half of his right hind leg and was walking on the top of his paw..the paw was ice cold. The vet figures he had a blood clot somewhere near his hip which apparently moved because in two hours the leg was ok again. I was getting scared to leave him alone while I was at work and really did not want him to suffer so we made the final decision.
I dreaded taking him in the car because he hated it and always screamed bloody blue murder but this morning he cuddled in Greg's arms and was very quiet. His passing was almost immediate when she injected him.
Greg buried him in my flower bed where he used to lay in the sun and I planted a lily beside him.
He was a good old cat and will be missed.
