I haven't posted on Purrs in some time, but it felt wrong not to acknowledge the passing of my Little Romany on here. He had a rough year, stress cystitis, a dental and then hyperthyroidism that he received radiotherapy for. But he was recovering and making good progress, so this is still a huge shock.
On 23rd November Chi Bear was taken to the vets first thing in the morning with a suspected infection or possible blockage. The vets called and updated regarding procedures that would be needed and treatment administered to ensure he had a little comfort.
At 12:55 that day, I received the call that despite seeming to improve after five minutes checks which had progressed to ten minutes, the veterinary nurse had gone in to find Chi had passed away. Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.
I can’t begin to put in to words how I’m feeling right now. Because honestly, I’m feeling numb and overwhelming sadness simultaneously. I’m not entirely sure how that’s possible.
Chi has taught me so much. He has given me infinitely more than I gave him. And my life was better for him being a part of it.
I already miss him, and knowing I’ll never hear him chirruping his updates when he comes in from the garden again is tremendously painful.
Chi, the love will always be there. As will the lessons. Thank you for choosing me to be your family. I think it’s possibly one of the biggest honours I’ve ever had. You truly were a gent among cats.<3
