Goodbye Ol' Blue Eyes........Heaven Has a New Angel

On Monday, St Patricks Day our beloved Ol' Blue Eyes, Thomas, left our world to become Heavens newest Angel. He was 12. You will see Thomas sitting on our butchers block on an earlier post. Well Thomas had been losing weight and had a snuffly nose for the past 6 weeks. Despite several doses of antibiotics he was getting worse. A trip to a different vet for a second opinion resulted in an xray which revealed that he had an aggressive tumor in his sinus cavity......so we made the painful decision to let him go.....he was literally starving to death because he wouldn't eat.......here are pictures of Thomas and his friend Sophie last winter....Sophie had a coat on and Thomas was cold...simple solution...piggyback.......






Thomas had the most incredible blue eyes. He was so gentle and placid. He meowed incessantly as all Siamese do when he spoke to us...oh to hear that meow just one more time. You see he lost his best mate Bear (a German Shepherd) about 18 months ago and his Juliet last year. He never connected with our other dogs so he was quite lost. He gave us so much joy we had to let him go. So Thomas is in heaven being nibbled by Bear and snuggling up to Zoe (his Juliet).
Goodbye my brave boy. God Speed until we meet again at Rainbow Bridge.

Have a lovely Easter.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your beloved cat Thomas. Pets bring us so much joy and comfort and want very little in return. We have 2 cats and a dog and reading your post today reminds me how precious they are.
Happy Easter.

Oh Linda I'm so sorry! Losing a pet is so hard. You were very brave letting him go and knowing it was the best thing for him. He will live on in your memories and in your heart.
Hugs,
Laurie

Hi Linda, popped over from Shann's blog. So sorry to hear about Thomas. I bred Siamese for many years (just ask Shann), so I know he was a person to you. You will cuddle him again one day.
Hugs, Coll
