Sad Monday

Kitties, Mommy has lots of tears for Mommy Cat at Jacqueline's Cat House as her husband cat Daddy Cat passed away and Mom is devastated  She so loved that couple. Daddy Cat, you left your Mommy Cat in a peaceful journey away and your mommy as well as Mommy Cat too, will mourn your loss.  Rest in peace darling boy.

And Merlin passed away as well.  Nellie's new husband. I am so deeply sorrowful for these babies' passing.   Rest in peace dear little ones. Mom nor I will never ever forget you I promise.  Neither of you.

I wasn't well and had to go to the v-e-t this morning early.  Mom noticed I was scratching at my right ear and shaking my head a lot.  Continually almost.  Before things got worse, mommy called the v-e-t and asked if I could be brought in.  I didn't say a word when mommy picked me up and lowered me into the PTU.  I did have red in my right ear and I got a medicine that the Vet administered into the ear, massaged it in well, and it will remain in my ear for a week or so.  Hopefully that will do it.  Mom is not good at pilling me and Tiffany my fave Vet tech broke her ankle in two places a few weeks ago right after she left here to go feed and walk a 100 pound lab.  He knocked her over..she hit several concrete places on the way down and posted  her x-rays.  Bad break requiring surgery.

Me,  I ate well when I got home (I had spurned my breakfast so mom trashed it and gave me another (of course!).  I have barely shaken my head and mom feels better.  Mom has a Pet App so she looked up the symptoms and it indicated an ear infection. So she called right away.

 Oh and LION came out to play.  He was in the living room and TURTLE was in the bedroom with Donkey!  Those kids of mine...I never know where they will go next.  When Mom leaves the house, they are everywhere when she comes home!

Please go see Merlin's mommy and Daddy Cat's mommy and his mate Mommy Cat, and give your loving thoughts.

Love you.

There's a lot of sadness in the blogosphere with both Daddy Cat and Merlin going to the Bridge. We send their families lots of purrs. And we sure hope your ear feels better, Katie. But the fact that you ate and was playing is a good sign.

Dearest Katie Isabella,
That was lots of sad news... and your ear was another worry.
Glad that you were able to eat after coming home!
Yes, human parents DO worry a lot when something is wrong with our fur babies.
Blessings to those families with a loss.

Dear Tender-hearted Katie.....first of all I'm glad your Mom got you to the vet and you got your ear looked at - you'll be right as rain before you know it! We did not know Daddy and Mom Cat but many did and ANY loss is sad......Merlin was my hero.....so my heart is always broken for anyone losing a beloved member of the family. Make sure you keep your paws away from that ear!

Love, Sammy

I was very sad to see that Daddy Cat and Merlin has gone to The Bridge. I didn't even know Daddy Cat had been ill.
I am glad you are feeling better and you have such a good Mom that takes you to the vet when she knows you are not feeling well. I feel bad for the vet tech -ouch.

Ragdoll Mommy said...

I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet friends. I understand what its like having to say goodbye. It is never easy.

La Cabeza Grande said...

Aw, dear sisfur. We're sorry to hear about your furriends passing. They will always be missed.

M would be interested in the stuff for your ear. Phineas had (and M suspects still has) a bit of an ear infection. He *hates* the ointment and the ear cleaning stuff. If the treatment could be done once and in the vet's office, mores the better.

pee ess: hope your favorite tech is healing.

Some days are just hard in the Cat Blogosphere... We cried so much about Daddy Cat.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi my darling: I am sorries about your earsicle! I was scratching some weeks ago and so I had to have Advantage. I am waaaaay better but I will be getting another treatment soon to finish off the ones who didn't get the toxic message the first time. It's always something.

We was sorry about these two kitties too. We have loved Daddy and Mommy Cat for a long time. I hope that Mommy Cat will make friends with some of the girlcats so she does not feel too lonely. We know her Mom Jackie will take good care of her. And we also feels for Nellie losing her "other half"--we'll have to be extra nice to her--or maybe invite her to join in some hell-raisin' behavior??? Love you! XOXOXO
