    Default Cyrus~ our Kitty

    My 16 Year old Persian Kitty had a massive embalism ( SP? )
    some time in the night last night. He awoke this morning and was unable to walk, and was horribly confused.

    My Husband brought him into the Vet, and after some tests we came to the realisation that at his age, with cancer and a heart condition it was best not to put him through a lengthy surgery and Physical Therapy...not to mention there was question as to him surviving through the sedation.

    It been a hard day for me and the children. Gosh, Ive had kitty longer than anyone...Its so hard to be unselfish and let them go.

    A very important part of our lives, and so loved in our family... he will be missed.

    So sorry for your loss. I suppose if you don't have cats you don't really understand how much they can affect you. They are seen as aloof but we loved ours so much. Best that Cyrus did not have to suffer any further. Always hard to lose a pet...especially after such a long life.

    Oh I am so sorry. Sixteen years is a long long time to have that special kitten in your heart. My thoughts are with you.

    So sorry to hear about Cyrus I had two 3/4 Persians and they had such wonderful personalities. Very intelligent cats indeed. You will most certainly miss the little guy and I'll bet Maxwell will too

    Thinking of you and your family and sending you s xxxxx

    Go run with the other kitties at the bridge Cyrus, no more pain but plenty of mice to chase

    Maxwell's family,

    So sorry to hear about your kitty. These things are never easy. You made the right decision and I am sure Cyrus is a happy little camper right now.

    Let us know if we can do anything.
