Cosmo (Cat) 3/09-7/13


Recommended Posts

God took my little Cosmo to where there is no pain, and at last, his suffering is at an end. He and his littermates, sister Tiger Lily among them, were dumped at 6 weeks old on our street.

Despite suffering from an autoimmune disease that included stomatitis (extreme pain in his mouth and throat), he was full of life. He'd fought back once before when he nearly died a few months ago, but finally, his little body gave out.

He loved rubbing against a metal ladder that was perched between the ground and the roof so he could climb and sun himself or watch or chase the birds. A few months ago when there was a thunderstorm, he literally pushed his sister with his paw under a car in the carport to protect her.

The next to the last time I saw him, he had a feather on his chin. Yesterday I took a nap, and I dreamed he was running with his tail fluffed up, as if he were protecting the house against dog intruders. Then today, I started finding feathers where there weren't any yesterday. I knew it was a sign that he had passed. My hubbby found his lifeless body tonight in the shed. He had come home to die.

We tried everything to save him, but it was not to be. I am grateful he feels no pain, and I hope someday we're together, again.

Rest in peace, my furry friend.

I'm so sorry you lost your precious little old man kitty. What a great life you gave him.

I think from time to time, he may just send you a few feathers to let you know he's fine, and watching over you.

I was taking out the garbage, tonight, and found a single feather in the carport. The only feathers I used to see where in bunches. His sister was crying last night and then at 3 this morning.

We are so fortunate to love and be loved by them.

I so appreciate all of your kind words at this time. May you, too, be comforted by fond memories of the pets you have lost.

Goodbye for now, Cosmo. Our mom says The Bridge has all sorts of kitty-loving nooks and crannies and an unlimited supply of sunny windowsills. Good on you for sending your family the random feather so they know you're ok.
