Goodbye R-2

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
R-2 was our 23 year old clinic cat, that came to us after being hit by a car (when he was a kitten) and being left with us because his owners couldn't pay the bill. I went to feed him yesterday (we are closed on sunday's) and knew it was time when I saw him just laying in his bed, not trying to greet me. I called in the vet and the head technician (who was his primary caretaker) and they helped him in a peaceful passing (he usually fought anything we ever tried to do to him, but last night he laid quietly and purred). He will be missed by all of us and many clients who have come to enjoy him over the years.

23 years old!? That is such a long time. Good for you guys for taking such wonderful care of him. I'm sorry for your loss. It sounds like R-2 was much loved.

Rest in Peace R-2

Wow! What a remarkable cat to have lived 23 years! And for you and your friends to have cared for him that long is also remarkable. I am sure he will be missed, but I am sure he is thankful he came into your lives a long, long time ago!

We really wish we had kept better records,on his age. The head tech will have been there 25 years in April of '06, and she says he came as a kitten within about a year of her being there, so he may have been older, we just don't know.
