    this morning I was walking Sam and my neighbor shouted across the pond for help -
    Her sweet boy Pete was having a seizure

    I have known this kitty for years - every morning he would sit in her pool Lania (like his own big catio with his two siblings )
    and watch me walk the dogs along the pond -

    I rushed over.
    Pete was apparantly seizing for more than 5 minutes- :(
    I gave him gentle smooches amd
    He was immediately taken to the emergency vet
    (He was on seizure meds for two years and this was his first incident in two years ..)

    They stopped the seizure but the neurological damage was too much :(
    To be their voice when they cannot speak is truly the hardest part of the journey

    Pete got his wings today the arms of his beloved mum.


    She is battling cancer- , living alone with her 3 kitties her husband passed not too long ago and
    Her cancer returned . she just had chemo the other day -

    My heart breaks for her -
    She is one of the strongest woman I know -
    (Last month after chemo she was even trying to put up her hurricane shutters by her self for Irma on her bday -)

    Please say an extra prayer for Peace for my Friend Barb during this heartfelt time .

    Pete was such a good boy - I will miss seeing that big ole white n grey boy look on after us on our walks

    Fly free sweet boy
    I know the others are waiting for you just on the other side of the bridge

      My heartfelt condolences to your friend. It is never easy.

      My mom lost her dog on Monday this past week, she was able to help him to the rainbow bridge. I think old age got the best of him so it was a little easier.

      A friend of mine also lost her beloved rescue shih-tzu, Missy on Wednesday. She only rescued her 7-8 months ago and she was still a young dog. She was in a specialist hospital for a week battling spinal meningitis. Sadly, she wasn't responding to the treatment and it started to progress to where it made it difficult for her to breathe. I am struggling with how to console my friend during this incredible grief and loneliness she is suffering from.

      Please, hug your loved ones as time is precious and we never know how much we have with one another.

          So many hugs for you and your neighbour's loss,, Including all those around them. I honestly can't think of anyone better to ease Pete along than yourself. So many hugs.

            Lair Prayers are sent. How stressful for all of you, but yet like @Xandria said what a lucky baby to have you by his side as he earned his wings. Fly high sweet baby.
