Rocky

I sitting here...typing with tears in my eyes....
Today we had to say goodbye to Rocky.
As I told before he was ill, vet said it is FIP. He also seemed to have a tumor in the intestine .
He didn´t eat much, we gave him whatever he loved, chicken, ground meat, ...anything..but he only took two or three bits...
Yesterday he seemd as if he wanted me to stay with him most of the time...he was lying in the garden and I took some last pictures of him. I took the time to caress him and to say good bye.
Today he was only lying behind his basket, hardly eating or doing anything.
I called Lars and told him I think we should take Rocky to the vet to put him to sleep.
Lars came in the evening and also said it seems to be time...so we let the kids say goodbye and went to the vet.
He didn´t really like driving...and at the vet we did stroke him as he noticed a dog and that seemd to be too much ... he kind of rebeld and then he did his last breathes...
The vet only could confirm ha was gone....
At home we (with the kids) buried him in the garden .

I must say I´m very happy Rocky took the decision himself...and I did not have to let him put to sleep.
And I´m very very thankful for the wonderful time we had.

Now we´ll see how Gordon ...the other cat will take it....

In loving memory of Rocky.

How very sad. Rocky was such a handsome kitty. At least you can be comforted that you gave him a good life and much love.

RIP Rocky.

So sorry to read about Rocky though a blessing that he decided to pass on his own terms.I hate going to the vets and having to make that decision.
