Farewell, Kimi dearest (August 2005 - May 25 2015)

Seems that instead of posting stuff regarding what this blog really is intended for, it has turned into a place for commemorating events....sometimes nice ones, and sometimes not really nice ones, like the one this post is about..and from the title, you may guess what it is about....yeah, my adorable furball Kimi, died late last night....even though I saw this one coming, it doesn't hurt any less than when Foxy died...it may hurt even more actually because Kimi's been sick for years, and I can only imagine how many days he had spent in pain...so even though now he is finally relieved, it is us the pain is gonna stay with for losing him...
For his entire life, he has had some kind of problems more or less, but the greatest one, and the one that eventually made him too weak to be able to live, was the so called feline AIDS, or viral stomatitis...or whatever vets call it...however, just as with humans, there was no cure...a fact we had accepted years ago when he was first diagnosed with it..and we all tried to fight with the disease for all these years...but eventually, we couldn't save him, and after being not himself for the past week, last night he just gave up on it all....
He will be terribly, terribly missed...I just can't imagine that he won't be around anymore to jump on my lap, to abuse my laptop when I leave the room, to run after me when he sees food coming...to go out in the street when he hears my footsteps from afar and wait for me...he wasn't the kind of playful cat Foxy was, yet he was Kimi, adorable and gorgeous in his own Kimi way.

After this, I don't think I'd be able to keep another pet....at least not in the near future...not cos of me only, but my parents as well...my dad and Kimi especially had this particular bond, and losing our pets makes him suffer terribly as well...my mum too, even though she always somehow kept her distance....yet, I know she adored them with her whole heart...

I didn't manage to say goodbye to him....even though I knew it yesterday he just won't make it, still my heart somehow hoped for a miracle...unfortunately, the miracle didn't happen...

Thank you Kimi for all these lovely years you gave us with your presence...I'm really sorry we couldn't do more and save you from the pain...I just hope you know we would have done anything for you, literally anything!! Rest in peace my dearest one! ♥♥♥

I feel your heart breaking. Let yourself grieve but remember all the good times you had with dear Kimi. Kimi is now free to roam in the beautiful spirit world without any pain. So sorry for your loss.

Sorry to hear about this; I know I would feel the same. May his spirit forever frolic with feathers on endless strings and eternal sounds of food being served.

Awwww.....what an adorable cat. So sorry for your loss. Having had cats all my life (I am 59), I indeed can empathize. Lovely photos.
