Hello Everyone and HAPPY EASTER!
Thank you for your comments on my last blog. I have just now read those comments, and they are very helpful and supportive.
This past week was pretty much like all of my weeks until Friday when my 9 year old cat, KOBE, suddenly passed away. My two sons and I are extremely heartbroken over his loss. He was fine, or so I thought, when I left for work at 8:00 AM. My son, the teacher, was out of school for the holiday. He was getting ready to leave about an hour later, when he noticed Kobe making 'odd' sounds and having trouble breathing. He rushed him the 2 miles to the vet who rushed him right in. He was checked for a foreign object in his throat and when nothing was there, he was taken to X-Ray, but by that time he had passed away. The vet said it was probably something related to his heart or lungs, possibly fluid buildup. So, we really don't know. We only know that we miss him.
I can make myself accept his death a little better by visualizing him over the "Rainbow Bridge" happy, healthy, and playing with CRICKET who passed away 2 years ago. Kobe and Cricket were buddies, and Kobe really grieved when Cricket left us. Now, they are together.
I think that is all I want to write about today. I hope you all have a BLESSED DAY with your families.
