Rest In Peace, Little Taz

Three days ago today, my husband's beloved cat of 14 years passed away.

The holidays came round and we had to make the tough decision to leave our cats in someone else's care. It was very tragic, but we felt his time was very close, since he lost his apetite and lost weight rapidly the week before; we suspected he had cancer.
When we came home we found he had passed on snuggled in his favorite spot where he lay faithfully every day by my husband's feet. We deducted that he simply went to sleep and didn't wake up. Their care-taker during our weekend told us that he was alive the day before we returned home-- it was our only regret that we could not say goodbye properly.

Rest in peace, Taz.

    1. Yes it is, but thankfully we have Poe to lift our spirits.

  2. I'm very sorry too, but glad that he passed quietly and peacefully. Loosing pets is always tough, that's why I've decided not to have any more pet mice for a while, they only live a short time really and it breaks my heart when they go.

    1. I appreciate the condolences, and I too was glad that he didn't seem to suffer as he passed.

      I got Poe because I was still raw about not having my dog with me here in the U.S.
      He's 19 this year, and wouldn't make the trip in his fragile age, so I left him with my mother... I will be sad when he passes as well, because I hate the idea of him thinking I abandoned him =(

  3. Pets are the heartbeats at our feet. I'm so sorry for your loss.
