Lost my Sweet cat Sprite

Post by PhyllisL on Wed Nov 07, 2018 5:33 pm

On Oct 26th 2018 I had to say goodbye to my sweet Rag doll cat due to Kidney Failure. He was my pride and joy, he kept me happy watching him play and all his snuggles. He was a very loving cat and knew when Mama was sad or sick. He'd come lay down or sit beside me to give me comfort. My other cats Frisky and Precious had previously passed away years ago, and I'm sure Sprite missed them also. as I do up to this day. Sprite was one lucky little boy. My daughter found him behind a coke machine with a hole in his side, took him to the Vet had him checked out and had the Vet repair his side. She kept him for a while and as he grew she was unable to keep him due to running a Catering business out of her house, so asked me if I'd like him. I didn't even hesitate and said yes.

They said I could change his name if I wanted but I kept it as it was since they found him behind a Coke a cola machine at a gas station. I have loved that little boy since they placed him in my arms, and now after 14 years he's gone.My arms are empty and I have a broken heart. Every where I look I think of Sprite and it's hard to go through out the day without having tears running down my face. He is now over the Rainbow Bridge playing with his brother and sister. He's no longer in pain or suffering from dehydration from not getting enough water even though I bought the fluids from the vets to have them give him. The Vet was going to try some medication to keep him alive, but I asked her if it would only prolong his illness. She said yes. It was a hard decision on my part to let him go so he wouldn't have to suffer. I will always miss him and I constantly think of him every day. I love you my sweet baby. It's hard to go through each day not having him walk front of me and suddenly lay down as I take another step. Or greet me at the door when i came home from the store.

Since I have Chronic Arthritis and it's hard to do things anymore, I probably won't be getting another cat, even though my heart is breaking to have one. RIP honey.

Dear Phyllis,
I am so sorry for your loss of Sprite. I can understand your pain having lost my Susie Bear, a 9 year old Chow Chow on November 10. She got sick and passed from cardiac arrest in three days. The doctors still don’t know what happened. My heart is broken into pieces and I don’t know if I’ll ever heal from this.

You and your baby Sprite are in my thoughts and prayers.

Your Sweet Susie Bear

Dear Marcia,
I am sorry  for your loss of your sweet Susie Bear. My heart goes out to you with your sorrow and pain your going through. I understand completely about your heart broken in pieces since mine is in the same condition. It is so hard to lose your furry babies. Most people understand the pain we go through. This one friend from when I was in High School said to me " It happens." And she's one of my best friends. Some people can be so heartless. They say you go through 5 grieving stages, it seems I'm going through them all at once.

If you need a shoulder to cry on your welcome to use mine, and if you need hugs for comfort, I'm here for that too. I love animals of all kinds. It breaks my heart each time I hear one is passing away.

I cried so hard today that my mid section hurts. I'm sending  Prayers for strength to get you through this and lots of hugs for comfort

Phyllis

Hi Phyllis,
Grief is such a hard thing to deal with. They say it’s the price of love, but it seems too high a price to pay.
My husband died years ago and Susie Bear’s death caused the same kind of grief. It’s almost like being punched in the stomach. Sometimes it’s hard to take a breath. Friends have been supportive but they have their own life to live so I carry the
burden by myself. Thank you for offering a shoulder to cry on. It means a lot. Be kind to yourself and remember all the good times with your baby. And prayers for you for strength and many hugs.
