Texas went to the bridge last night. It was incredibly sad, but peaceful. We put him on his harness instead of in the carrier, and he actually enjoyed looking out the window on the way to the vet. He hadn't eaten all day though, nor could he really walk, so we knew it was time.
I can't believe he is gone. I keep expecting to hear him scratching at the door, or meowing about something. I miss him terribly. But he is free of this evil disease, and I am thankful for that. His blog here will remaing untouched. Feel free to visit me at my blog, I'll start posting there once I heal. And with such a great cat gone from my life, healing might take quite a while. Thanks everyone, for all you have done. We love you.
One last thing.
You all may remember Petey, who passed earlier this year. Well, on Petey's blog are links to some societies that are trying to cure this awful disease. If you would like to make a donation in Texas' or Petey's memory, the links are on Petey's site, and also here below.
Winn Feline Foundation – Winn is a non-profit organization established in 1968 that supports studies about cat health. Projects funded by Winn have provided information that is used every day in veterinary medicine to treat cat diseases. When donating, you can specify that it go for cancer research, or another disease, if you wish.
