Tonight after coming home to a sick cat and rushing him to the emergency vet, we faced a decision no fur baby parent wants to make. Unfortunately, Boo is no longer with us. After running blood tests and x-rays, the vet found that he had a cancerous mass on his right lung and that it was quickly filling with fluid. After discussing things with the vet it was determined that the outlook for recovery was grim so THE DECISION was made in his best interest.
Neil and I are both pretty torn up about this and as I write this I have to wipe away the tears. We knew that when we adopted him that health issues were bound to come sooner than later (when we adopted him he was about 11.5/12 years old) but I hoped we had a few more years.
So now we say our good-byes to our furry friend who was nothing but kind, loving and a wonderful friend to everyone he met.
Hugs! Never an easy decision. I am so sorry you had to make it so soon.
I’m so sorry Lindsay, that is a really hard decision. You and your family are in my thoughts.

I’m so sorry 🙁 Losing a pet is incredibly hard, but he was fortunate to have such loving owners who took such good care of him.
My heart goes out to you both. It was a amazing that you adopted an elderly cat to begin with. He was so lucky to have known you and been loved by you.
We are so sorry and know what a great cat Boo was. We loved seeing him and he always loved all the attention
anyone gave him. Hugs and kisses to you guys.
I am so sorry. Fur babies are such angels in our lives and, as a momma to 7 kitties, I send you love and healing for your hurting hearts.
So sorry for your loss. You were sweet to offer an older cat a great home.
I’m so sorry about Boo. *hugs* It sucks losing a fur baby. 🙁 🙁
I am so sorry for your all’s loss. He seemed like a great kitty, so glad you all gave him a home for the time he was here 🙂

Aww, he was so beautiful and lucky to have wonderful people adopt him and care for him so well late in life.
