I posted here a few months ago about how I was picking up my first sphynx. My mom got a sphynx kitten when I was 10 years old and that's what made me fall in love with the breed. He just had his 14th birthday earlier this month and passed away yesterday 3/18. He appeared to be perfectly healthy up until a month or two ago. Then he just sort of started deteriorating really quickly.

I've been living on my own for several years now, but I grew up with that cat. He was the first pet I ever loved...he's tattooed on my arm. I just wish I could see him again. And the part that's most upsetting is that they took him to be put to sleep, but he was so scared at the vet that he freaked out and died before he even got the injection. He always hated the vet. I wish his last moments weren't fear even though I know my mom and brother were there to comfort him.

I love you Gibson.

I am so sorry to hear that your precious Gibson has crossed the rainbow bridge, it's heartbreaking to lose someone you loved so much. At first you may focus on his final moments (I know I did when my Wilson passed) but that was only a brief moment in his long life .Try to think of the good and happy times you and your family shared with him too , these more positive thoughts do start to come with time. I promise , he will always be with you on your heart. Be kind to yourself, and take care x
