Rest in Peace Ossie Cat.

Kitties, do you remember a few weeks back I asked if anyone's mom or dad knew anything about Ossie's medical condition?  Mom had posted his report from the vet for all of you as well.  His mom tried so hard every way she knew to save his dear life, but several days ago he flew away after letting his mommy know he was ready to leave.  And his mommy is bereft.  My mommy knows that feeling.  All of our parents go through this when one of us runs away to the Bridge.  We are fur children and cherished as family members.

Ossie and she were close companions and each loved the other as much as they possibly could.  Ossie was deeply loved and cared for as the precious innocent he was, entrusted to  the care of his mommy.  Ossie loved his mommy just as much as she loved him.

Theirs was a "meant -to -be" story.  His mommy saw him in a pet food store up for adoption and it was truly love at first sight.  The star on his chest showing his singularity sealed the deal.  He came home to begin the life of a cherished companion.

Here are his mommy's words to me about Ossie's last day.  I know that most reading these loving anguished words can feel with her the sense of loss and sad emptiness in the home now.
 The mass in his body was too much for him and he was shutting down (kidney failure). We spent a quiet day with me gently loving on him and he gave me a look that was OK mommy, this is it. I stroked his tiny cute ears, rubbed his chin like he likes, kissed his head, massaged his paws the whole time telling him how much I love him. 

Yes Momma, he is waiting.  And my momma sends you every bit of her compassion and support to get you through

I love you Mom. 
Ossie, Beloved Companion to His Mom Evy

  25. Dearest Katie Isabella,
    Yes, with moist eyes I read through this... knowing too well about this.
    It feels so raw for loosing such unconditional love from a fur child. So loyal and often compared to several humans, they are capable of showing deeper love.
    Friday afternoon my youngest sister did bring my Dad home; no surgery needed. That was good news!
    Hugs and blessings.

  26. Leaky eyes in the Catrulers home. Their little bodies can only take so much. We're glad Ossie's mom did the kindness of letting him run free and take his place among the stars in the night sky.

  28. I'm Ossie's Mom. I feel the greatest gift we can give our fur children is a peaceful transition to The Rainbow Bridge. As hard as this is to do I knew my sweet Ossie was too ill to continue. Carole has done an exquisite photo and story tribute to Ossie. I sent this link to my friends and family and they all said how beautiful it was. Ossie was an original and so very sweet. I miss him so much.
