he woke me at about 9;30 this morning wiht his little "i need you" mew.
and started seizing.
i gave him his pain meds, a double dose, called the clinic and rushed him in.
i didn't even dressed. i was in my pjs.
my heart is broken.
i don't know what else to say.
"There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in
the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived
through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with
full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how
small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be,
is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given."

You don't have to say anything as we can imagine how you are feeling right now and most of us know that awful pain.
I feel like I knew Bendy from this site. He's so very cute and special! I just love the photo of him in the little shirt.
How long did he live? It seems to me it was a pretty long time considering his challenges, etc
Of course not long enough! but how incredibly perfect that you two came together and did have that much time together. I think he was your soul mate!
I hope it is a little comforting to know that so many others knew of and cared for him too!
Still, nothing will help heal much - except for time... and you can't make that go any faster - and probably shouldn't want to anyway!
At least there is this great network of support here at this site. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
I miss him every second that goes by.
As Bendy was SO VERY SPECIAL, and you 2 were so close - I can imagine how very painful it must be to have lost him. Please continue to share your thoughts and memories of him here with us...
and take care of yourself.
I'm so very sorry to hear about Bendy. He was a great inspiration to everyone who heard his story, and his legacy of surviving a difficult beginning was encouraging to a lot of people who may not have kept a pet because of its disability.
Thank you, Bendy, for all the things did to help other kitties. So very sorry.
I don't know how to post anymore.
everything here reminds me of him, he was part of everything
he was so much more than a cat, he was my friend
no number of cats in this house will make it feel complete
everyone wants to tell me how good that is for a little guy with so many problems
but it is short short short
i finally had his mouth under control
part of me wonders if the virus came in with teh last set of fosters i brought in
no way to know
no way to change anything
no amount of cuteness on anyone elses part can make me feel better
i am functional only because of modern medicine
and only barely at that
everywhere i look i see where he should be and is not
this is harder than losing Legume
his little panicked face looking at me as he seized. his eyes saying 'help me, i'm confused, i'm scared'
the little happy kitty faces around me can't make that image go away
