My family mourns today.

Last night, the day after his 14th birthday, my wife and I had to send our kitty Spirit over the Rainbow bridge. He'd been losing weight, vomiting every day and had been pooping liquid for several days. We hoped against hope that he simply had a parasite or bug that would be cured by medication. IT turned out that his intestines had thickened and had blockages and he had a malignant tumor close to his heart. Even if it were operable, Spirit was simply too weak to survive surgery. We were determined that we would not make him suffer, so we made the heartbreaking decision to let him go.

While we are terribly saddened, we also know that Spirit was ready to go. He died with the same grace dignity that he carried with him every day. He is at rest and will never feel pain again. In spite of our sorrow, we are at peace with our decision, but boy oh boy do we ever miss our little guy. We will always miss and love him. When his ashes are returned, we'll bury him in our back yard with our kitty Moe and doggie Spencer by a lawn statue that we have of St. Francis of Assisi. Thank you for allowing me to share.
