Kenny my heart aches without you. You were a beautiful soul. Your personality shined as bright as the sun. You were a joy to have for the short time i was blessed tp have shared with you. I miss you each day. I love you buddy. |
Kenny was adopted from a local shelter. He was 4 or 5 at the time of adoption. We knew he was FIV positive. He stole our hearts with his overly friendly personality. As soon as we opened the cat carrier he jumped out as if he had been with us his entire life. He was not afraid of our 3 large dogs and would comically swat them if they got in his way. His days were spent on my lap, playing with our sons matchbox cars, batting around anything he could find on the floor that wasnt his toys and getting into cupboards everytime you opened one. He enjoyed people food and loved chinese pork fried rice!!! He even liked bison chip dip. He hated using his cat door to get into the basement. He would sit by the door meowing until someone felt sorry enough for him to open the door up!!! He was a big mooch. You would see him sitting looking up while you ate waiting for food. It was kenny and the 3 dogs in a row waiting for us to give them something. One day Keny looked a bit bloated so we took him to the vet. An xray revealed an enlarged liver the cause unknown. He was put on a medication to see if it would help. It wasnt helping. We took him back to the vet and were given 2 other medications. We were told he was in palliative care. My heart was broke. Kenny stopped eating. He was secluding himself from everyone but my son. The day he passed he came into the bedroom i was in and staggered into the walk in closet. I gave him a towel and his little tub he loved to drink from. I watched him struggle to try and get up yo drink. I moved the tub to him and he could barely open his mouth. I stayed with him because I didnt want my faithful friend to pass on alone. Although he didnt want to be touched i stayed near him in a chair. I told him he didnt have to stay here any longer. I loved him and wouls miss him but it was ok to go. He didnt deserve the cards he was dealt in life. I heard my best furry friend take his last breath. It was one of the most difficult things to witness. His suffering had ended. Ours was continuing. I wish i could have done more to save him. He went downhill so fast. Watching my friend become a shell of an existence was heart wrenching. Only people that hage lost a faithful friend truly understand what you are going through.
I love you Kenny. I hope you know that you were an absolute joy. You brought me happiness and laughter. No one will ever replace you buddy. You are forever in my heart.
