We had to put our beloved cat, Moofasa, to sleep today. He was such an important member of our family. Such a LOVER. He would talk your ear off, even when you wanted to sleep. He let you know when things around the house just weren't right. He was my design consultant when I was sewing, he had to touch each and every fabric. Most importantly he cared for each and every member of the family. When you were having a bad day he caressed you. When the babies cried he came to see what was taking me so long to get to them. He greeted every guest with a warm welcome.
It was a difficult decision today. He was always a LARGE cat, nearly 20 pounds. Today he barely weighed 7! His kidneys had failed and were very small. Even with treatment he may have made it 2 weeks to possibly 2 months. I couldn't let our gentle man suffer any longer. My husband had him at the vet. Gina and I said our tearful goodbyes to Moofasa over the phone. She cried so hard telling him goodbye. My husband, who rarely shows tearful emotions, broke down. He held Moofasa and asked the vet for a brush to brush him one last time. I could tell when Kerry got home he had cried during the 20 minute drive home. We are heartbroken. I am done with having pets for a while.
Goodbye Moofasa, you will forever be in our hearts. Thank you for being so good to us.
