Hello everyone. It’s the Island Cat Mom. As most of you may have heard, on Monday afternoon Wally left this world and is now at the Rainbow Bridge.
Over the past few years Wally had his health issues, first with a severe pancreatitis attack that resulted in a hospital stay and a feeding tube. He also had a mild heart problem and early stage kidney disease. About 6 months ago he was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, and since that time his kidneys worsen no matter what we did to try and slow the progression. Through all of this, Wally always remained a trooper…putting up with many vet visits and me worrying about him, and taking his various medications.
Late last week, his kidney values were off the chart, he was not doing well, and the sad decision to let him go was made. This all happened so fast…much faster than I ever imagined.
Thank you for all your kind words of condolence…it warms my heart that Wally brought all of you as much joy as he brought me. I will miss my orange boy SO much. He was one in a million.
Thank you, Ann, for this lovely graphic.
If love could have saved you…
you would have lived forever.
We’ll be taking a break from blogging…at least for awhile so we can cope with this tremendous loss and find our new normal.
