Why are you reporting this puzzle?

15 June 2003 - 21 December 2019.

He spent last weekend in the Vet hospital but, sadly, wouldn't eat when he came home and got weaker and weaker. So - yesterday the decision was made and he is no longer with us.

Sophie and I are going to miss him a lot...

Yes, bless her... Truth to be told, they seemed to operate quite separately but she's definitely not a happy girl.

Anyway - good to see you!

Pammi

Oh my, how terribly sad, Kayell. Poor dear little Sophie must be feeling the loss really badly. Big cuddles to you sweet little Sophie. ♥♥♥

Kayell

Thank you, Pammi. I think I'm coming to terms with it better than Sophie. Much to my surprise, she's really quite disturbed by his sudden disappearance. She's taken up residence on the landing outside "his" bedroom door and wails a lot. I'm doing my best but am not furry and ginger...

I'm so glad to see you here. I've been really concerned about you with all the dreadful news from Oz. I can't imagine what it must be like to live with. I do hope that you and yours are safe from the fires and that all is well with you generally.

Let's hope for better things for all of us in 2020...

So sorry for your loss of a beautiful kitty. I know the loss, having to put down my Tiger.

I am sorry for the loss of your cat!It is so hard to loose a beloved pet,but the poem” the last battle” is beautiful!1!

He was precious. My heart hurts with yours .its not goodby because Jesus said “ I will create ALL things new. New heavens new earth, and our healthy pets .

Impie

Thanks for posting, Kayell....what a precious kitten. I'm looking forward to more Ferdy photos, but I know it's hard to browse through them, so take your time. ♥

Awww, thanks for posting that Kayell. There's something so special about the kitten pics....ears they've not grown into yet....simple pleasures....inexhaustible curiosity and delight. And hopefully a smile amidst the tears as you look back at Ferdy's life with you.

Kayell

Thank you, Nancy. You are all lovely people...

I'll just post one of his "pre-historic" photos here and drip feed a few more once I've sorted them out.

Oh, Kayell, what sad news! I'm so sorry for your loss. It is hard to let go, yet the loving thing to do when it is time. The poem Impie posted says it well. Ferdy was such a handsome kitty....always enjoyed the pics and stories you've shared of Ferdy and Sophie. Hugs to you and Sophie. ♥♥

Kayell

Thank you so much, Anne.

I'm truly sorry about Atsutsa - I completely missed that news and have just been catching up. It must have been devastating. He was such a handsome boy and obviously brimming with personality. 12 is way too young for something like that to happen. Sophie is about 13 (I think...) and I fear I am about to turn into a bit of an anxious mother...

Wendy - thank you. He was a lovely boy. I know you're right and I'll get there eventually...

Atsutsa

Oh, Kayell, I'm so sorry for your loss....and loss is too close to us all. Blessings for you and Sophie. I know I'm still terribly sad after 2 months without my fur baby and still wondering what happened.

Kayell

Many thanks, Mil and Impie. I know you understand. The poem is lovely and, in fact, appears on my Vet's website, together with the Rainbow Bridge. They do help - even if they make me cry...

Oddly enough, there have been a number of rainbows here yesterday and today...

I've been looking out some of his "early days" photos (pre-digital camera...) and will do a bit of scanning and post some Ferdy kitten puzzles at some stage.

frea

Thanks lImpie Found it. Such comfortin thoughts.

Oh, I am so sorry for your loss. He is so beautiful. Whatever was hurting him he is free of it now. I hope you can take comfort in that. - Wendy

Impie

@frea - thank you. I got this poem here on Jigidi and copied it in my Word document, I have also sent it to my best friend in a card and then adjusted the number of years, when her kitty died last year. You can find this and also other poems on the internet for everyone to read and copy I'd presume....I honestly don't know about the copyrights.

frea

What wonderful poem. I would like to share it with others who have felt the loss of a beloved pet on a local frum. . Do you know about copyright please

Impie

Oh, Kayell, I'm so sorry for your loss. Ferdy was such a precious kitty boy and it's so hard to let go, but you made the right decision. You don't want your kitty to suffer.
You and Sophie will definitely going to miss him a lot, but I'm certain that Ferdy will get a warm welcome at the Rainbow Bridge from all the kitties who crossed the Bridge before him.
Farewell, Ferdy, may you rest in peace...♥♥♥


I hope the words in this poem, which I received from Carrie (CBMuller), will be as comforting to you as it was to me when Goofie passed away...


THE LAST BATTLE

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this--the last battle--can't be won.

You will be sad I understand
Don't let grief then stay your hand.
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
What is to come can hold no tears.
You'd not want me to suffer, so,
When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where to my needs they'll tend.
Only stay with me 'til the very end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I will be saved.

Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do.
We've been so close these 16 years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears."


♥♥♥

I'm so very sorry to hear the sad news. Our thoughts are with you and Sophie.
Ferdy has many friends waiting over the Rainbow Bridge so he won't be alone.
Love tisketsmum & Tisket xx
