We had to put Cynikitty to sleep today. It was a painful decision but his kidneys were failing. The vet had given him some subcutaneous fluids on Friday night to see if that would help. It did for a bit. Just long enough for Mrs. C to get back from a trip. By last night we had to bring him broth to his bed for him to take any and by this morning he had stopped eating altogether.
He was a wonderful pet and companion. He would jump in my lap every night as I read. But it had to be his idea. Once when I was getting ready to read, I picked him up and put him in my lap and he jumped down immediately, walked around the coffee table, and then jumped into my lap. He wanted to be up there but it had to be his idea. Such a cat.
Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.
