Hello everyone. I originally joined this forum because I became a new Mom to a 6 month old boy sphynx that I named Bastion. Bastion was born with an illness that is contagious to other cats and therefore his breeder was going to have him put down, my fiancé worked at the animal clinic the breeder took him to, to be put down and he saved him. Brought him home and that’s when Bastion chose me as his mommy. As soon as he was brought home he came out of his cage and sat right in my lap and looked up at me as if saying “yeah...you’re my mommy now.” Some back story on myself, I have been severely allergic to cats my entire life, we tried fostering another syphynx before I was allergic to him, but somehow, I was not allergic to Bastion. It’s as if it was meant to be. We took Bastion in while he had pneumonia in one of his lungs, we gave him treatment after treatment, but the pneumonia was too strong and within a couple of weeks moved to his other lung and began to fill with fluid. My fiancé called me saying he rushed him to the clinic cause he was having trouble breathing. I left work and rushed to the clinic in time for him to tell me that they were placing us in a room to explain the bad news. He was taking his last breaths. We made the extremely hard decision to end his suffering, a decision I have never had to make with any fur baby of mine. He’s been gone for 2 days now and I have been devistated since. I keep thinking I can hear him meowing for me to pick him up and take him to bed for cuddles; it was his favorite thing to do. Within 2 weeks Bastions became my shadow; my familiar and I miss him so much. I’m hoping one day his spirit will come back to me. Hopefully in another sphynx, but if not that’s ok. Thank you for letting me tell my story and giving a sort of eulogy for my beloved Bastion.
