Hi dear friends,

This is the hardest blog I have had to write since my Mom died almost 2 yrs ago. Thor went over the Rainbow Bridge about 10:30 tonight. Dr. Gail was with him. I am so grateful he wasn't alone. She had been with him most of the day. His blood sugar this morning was so high it didn't even register. Then it came down to 500 and something. He had a seizure a few hours ago but wasn't responding to anything. His blood sugar came down to the 300's late in the day but it was just too late.

We have so many wonderful memories of him. I can see him laying here on my desk nest to me..taking up part of the keyboard! I see him walking me to the rug in the living room to be brushed. I see him walking me to the bathroom so I'd turn on the water in the sink so he could drink from it. I see him looking up at me with those beautiful eyes of his. I feel him poking me in my side trying to get my attention when I was at the computer. The longer he had to wait, the harder the poke got. It was so funny. I see him sticking his head through the bind behind the TV and then turning to see if I was watching him then he'd jump down when I stood up. That was his way of getting food every night at 10 pm while his Daddy had his snack.. a bowl of ice cream. Thor did this every single night. I know I'll "feel" him jump up on the bed with me tonight and many nights after. He will be there in spirit.

Arjay and I both said our own private prayers tonight that God take him so he wouldn't have to suffer anymore. Neither one of us knew about that until we told one another after Dr. Gail's phone call. We were going to have him put to sleep and had the appointment made for 2 pm tomorrow afternoon. God answered our prayers. I am just so sorry I didn't get to see him one more time but that wasn't to be.

Do I believe Thor has a soul and that he is now in Heaven. Yes I do. He's there with Tyke, Taffy, Tiger, Sandi and Snowball. He's there with all of the wonderful Spark fur babies that have gone on before him and they are all playing together. I look forward to the day when we will meet again and never be separated again.

Thank you all so much for your love, prayers and concerns. Thor felt very special having his own blog and being part of the Spark Community.

With love,
Arjay and Elayne emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear about Thor! I've fallen behind with my Spark friends due to some difficulties of my own and didn't realize he had crossed the bridge. Seamus is going to miss him, they were good friends.

    But now I see you have Max and it will be great getting to know him. Thor will still be in our hearts, but we look forward to meeting Max.

    I didn't realize I never commented on this blog when you first posted it. I don't know why, but I thought about Thor today. How much pleasure I always got out of his posts and how he shared his "view" of the world with all of us. I love that you are carrying on the tradition with Max. You share your lives with very special furbabies indeed.

    I just wanted to say thank you for all that you share with us, and I do agree... They are all most certainly playing happily together at the Rainbow Bridge.

    I'm so very sorry to hear of Thor's death! I'll miss his blogs. What a great mom you were to him, and I know you are deeply saddened by this. Prayers for comfort as you grieve the loss of this very special kitty!

    Oh Elayne, I'm so truly sorry for you and Arjay. Thor was such a fighter and such a charming kitty. A kitty couldn't have special ordered better parents than you. I went through this with my diabetic Barracuda and know how difficult the daily monitoring and worrying and care can be. Big Thor is, indeed, in a better place.
    You are in my prayers, big hugs, Kim and the Philly Phurballs (I'm up to 5 now...latest addition is about 4 months old, a scrawny little black kitty I've finally named Jesse "Buckwheat" James, Junior. Don't ask, it's complicated, but it fits!)

    Thor is now nestled in the palm of the Lord's hand. It is so painful to lose a furry family member. My heart hurts for your family and you are in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Thor sounds like a wonderful, beautiful furry one. I went through the same thing with my doggy Megan. I do believe that we will see each other again. And know that my angel Megan was there at the Rainbow Bridge to great Thor and they are now playing and romping together. They are waiting for us with those big, longing eyes. God Bless You! Bob.

    So sorry for your loss. We had to put our yellow lab of 12 years, Echo, down last Mother's Day. I totally know what you are going through. Our pets are our kids and we love them dearly and they love us unconditionally. Prayers and thoughts go out to you.

    I'm so sorry for your loss! It's so hard when that time comes; even if you are finally ready to let go and let God. But, you do have all those happy and funny memories and I hope you can find comfort in them. Thor is at peace and without pain again. emoticon

    I am so very sorry for your loss of Thor. It breaks my heart too. I am a big animal lover and have always had cats and dogs. When they leave us, they are definitely in a better place with no pain and suffering. Only time will bring you the comfort you are looking for.

    Elayne and Arjay,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I too am typing this with tears in my eyes. It is so hard to lose one we love and our furbabys are so very special and dear to us. I really think of them as a gift from God to us.
    I only knew Thor through Sparkspeople but he was a very Dear and Special Friend to my little Shortie when I first joined SP 3 years ago and I read every blog Thor wrote and comment Thor sent Shortie aloud to him until he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Thor was a great comfort to me when I lost Shortie. Even to this day there are times when I feel Shortie with me.
    I know my Shortie will be there along with Tyke, Taffy, Tiger, Sandi and Snowball to meet Thor.
    I will miss his positive blogs, he always made me smile.
    I wish I knew something to say to make this easier for you, to take away some of the pain I know you feel at his loss but there just aren't any words that can do that.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Rest In Peace Thor.

    I am so sorry! I just had a feeling his time was near since his blood sugar was so horrendous!

    I also believe that Thor is in Heaven. He is enjoying his new life and will be glad to see you when you come!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know he is well and happy and chasing butterflies over the Rainbow Bridge waiting for you. He will always be with you along with all the others you have loved. You went far beyond what many people would do for a pet because Thor was and is your furbaby. You have my deepest sympathies and Max will get extra hugs tonight. Thor had many friends on Spark and will be missed.
    2229 days ago
    Oh Elayne. I am so very sorry. Tears are flowing as I realize I won't be talking with Thor on Sp anymore. But I am glad that he isn't suffering and I know that he is at the Rainbow Bridge with all the furbabies waiting for you and Arjay. I know that you will see him everywhere for quite some time. May God touch you and bring you the comfort and peace you need right now.
    Blessings and hugs...

    Sorry for your loss. I know how it feels to lose a cat. I have another cat right now named Bob Harper. He's black and white with half a mustache. He's standing on the computer desk right now. And trying to get the asian beetles on the ceiling. Or at least trying to talk to them.
