For your optimism, your prayers, your good wishes and thoughts. For emails I know were sent, but are somehow hosed up in our system and unable to be retrieved. For the candles that burned to light Shred's way.
Cats are so adept at masking and hiding their pain, and towards the end, it was evident that Shred was tired of the masquerade and simply wanted it to end. The growling and yowling intensified to a crescendo right before silence finally set in.
He was rescued from a diseased colony over 4 years ago and immediately laid on my chest. He died on my chest Sunday morning while I slept. Other than that words fail me. God must of wanted him more than we did.
I set up a page of pics of him, and invite you to share and celebrate his life by viewing them. Everytime Mike and I see a roll of toilet paper, we will remember all the times we had to take them away from this little scamp. We will remember, hopefully one day in the future without tears, all the mishaps and mischief he was so adept in getting used to. My clan is quieter these days, they also feel his loss. His brother misses him so. Thank you for pulling for him. He was a very special guy.
I hope this link works as it is a new photo site I am using. God Bless all of you for helping me keep this vigil and helping me keep it together. I think all you have to do is click on a picture to start it. His adult pictures are first, his kitten pictures are at the end. He was forever a kitten in his heart and that is how I will remember him.Shredder
