A Sad Goodbye

Friday was a very, very hard day for us. We had to say goodbye to our first "kid", Stank. About a month ago we noticed Stank started losing some weight. Then after a little while he started eating less and less. We took the first appointment we could get with the vet and they did lots of tests. All they could find was that he was anemic. They told us that likely he had cancer but the only way to tell was by doing expensive tests and x-rays. And they also told us that even with treatment his likelihood of survival was very slim and the treatments would make him very sick themselves. We tried our hardest to get him to eat but he just refused. We even tried appetite stimulants which didn't have any affect on him. The poor cat was miserable. He was hiding under our desks and when we'd lay with him he would let us love on him for a little bit but then he'd move away as if to say "just let me be, I don't feel good." It was so hard to see our buddy so miserable. We knew what we needed to do, but boy was it the hardest decision we've made. But at least our Stanky isn't suffering anymore.

My boy is so handsome. And he loves to sit in my lap! #lifejoy
I love when my two boys snuggle!
Two of my boys snuggling. So much love.
I don't think he realizes or cares that this is very uncomfortable. But the pain is tolerable for his cuteness! #cats #catsofinstagram #cuddlebug
Eskimo kisses with a cat are the best.

Day 8 #fmsphotoaday #shapes He's got the cutest shape. And his carrot does, too! #furbaby #catsofinstagram #cats
A cat nap with my boys would be so nice right now.

Stank, you were such an awesome cat. You had so much love to give, you were so, so sweet and such a beautiful cat. Your daddy and I love you so, so much and we miss you like crazy. Your little brother misses you, too. I will always love you, Stank, and will always remember and think of you fondly. Life just won't be the same without you sitting on my lap, without you trying to swat at my necklaces, without you eating the bugs for me (Seabass just doesn't have it in him like you did), and of course without your snuggles and love.

All my love sweet boy.
Your Mommy
