Firstly, thank you BlogTeam for keeping BlogClan happy and busy while I’ve been away from my computer.
It’s been a difficult week. Miu Miu, my gorgeous, great-hearted, easy-going cat has been sick for a long while. He never truly recovered after his eye operation. He had melanoma in one eye and, despite having the eye removed, the cancer seems to have slowly spread. Over the past year, he’s very gradually grown thinner and weaker, dropping from 6.5 kg to 2.9 kg. Last week, his constantly sniffly nose began oozing blood. He was vomiting every day and hardly slept. So I made the heartbreaking decision to let him go.
Josh and I took him to the vets on Tuesday evening where a very gentle vet sedated him. Miu Miu was calm, and purred as he fell asleep. It was extremely sad, but also a relief to see him finally at ease after so much discomfort. When he was fast asleep, the vet gave the final anaesthetic that put him to sleep forever. Then the vet covered him with a soft blanket like tucking in a sleeping child, and left me and Josh alone to say our goodbyes.
We are heartbroken to lose such a wonderful cat, but he is at peace now and won’t suffer anymore. He will be cremated and I will keep his ashes close forever because he really was a dear and beloved member of our family. It helps to know that he won’t only be remembered by us and our family and friends, but by BlogClan too.His sister, Flower, is fine and healthy She has her brother’s lovely nature, so he lives on in her.
