Goodbye my little friend

Hello. I'm not saying much today, my beloved Bugsy has passed away. I went out last night to Helen's 50th birthday party, and when I came back I sat in a comfortable chair with Bugsy on my knee, for an hour. I put him to bed with his hot water bottles. He hadn't eaten very much in the last 48 hours and I planned to take him to the vet on Monday morning.

This morning when I came downstairs, I knew he was very poorly. He was laid stretched out and had been sick where he lay. I rang the emergency number for the vet and she said to bring him straight away. I asked for a home visit, but she said it would be quicker if I brought him in. He was barely conscious so wouldn't have known what was happening. When the time came to say goodbye I think he knew I was there, I held his head and he gave a little murmur. One hour later I was bringing him home.

He is now buried in the garden. He loved the garden, lying in the sunshine watching me and the other cats, and Rocky, coming and going. Rest in peace my little boy, my best friend for 20 years. He came to me when I was in need of some comfort after a messy relationship broke down. His previous owner kept going away and leaving him when he was only a kitten. We both needed someone to love, and we found each other.

Sorry, no more words.
Ilona

  4. Bless him. Pets seem to reflect the care they receive from their owners. He lived to a ripe old age, obviously adored with his every need met. I am always grateful that I've had my cats to share my life and thankful for everything they've given me. Somehow holding onto this when they've gone has given me great comfort through what is never an easy time. Arilx

  16. I am so sorry. You shared your love for twenty years which is more than many have. You gave him the best life and loads of love and will have many memories. I have lost some of my greatly loved chickens over the past few years and it doesn't matter what sort of critter we love the feeling is the same when we have to let them go. I so feel for you at the moment but you will know that you gave him the best life you possibly could. I am sending you a hug x

  27. Ilona I'm so very very sorry to read your heartbreaking news about your beloved Bugsy. I can only imagine how hard it must be to lose two members of your lovely family within such a short space of time. I was keeping my fingers crossed that he'd keep going although I could see in your most recent photo he'd lost weight. I'm lighting a candle this evening for my beloved dog Chico who travelled to Rainbow Bridge four years ago today so this will also be for Bugsy. Thinking of you. Kristel xx

  28. I'm so sorry, you've had a rough time of it. He was so lucky to have you in his life, as was Rocky. I hope the sadness won't last very long and you can remember the happier times with a smile. All the best,

  61. I am so sorry, Ilona. When my last cat died, the vet told me I didn't realize how special and rare it was for a cat to see the seasons come around for over twenty years. He was trying to make me feel better but I still hurt for a long time.

  107. Hi Ilona,
    So sorry to hear about Bugsy. I know from your blog posts that you took very good care of him and that is why he lived for 20 years, which is quite a long time for a kitty cat to live. I'm not sure what that would equate to in human years but I'd bet it's close to 100. He's now crossed the Rainbow Bridge and will never be sick or cold or in pain again. And someday, he'll be there waiting for you.
    Hugs,

  150. My cat,Sophie, died recently at almost 20 years old; I'd had her since she was a few weeks old. My flat-mate at the time decided that she didn't want to keep her. Miss her loads but hope that I was able to give her a good life. Sounds as though you gave Bugsy a good life too. Lots of love to you.

  151. Oh, I am so, so, sorry for you loss! I only commented the other day on Bugsy. It never gets any easier. I lost my 20 yr old girl last year. We had been together for exactly half of my life. I still miss her something terrible.
    These furry little critters really do worm their way into hearts.
    Take Care of yourself!
