Sadly, my beloved furry friend and loyal companion has joined his friends and family at Rainbow Bridge. I am certain that brothers Chiko I & II, Friko I & II, and Billabong, Cousin Bailey, Cousin Eddie and Step-brother Toby were all there to greet him. He will certainly be missed by all, and was so kind and loving to everyone he met. For me, he was my everything since I was 13, and I can't even remember the life I had before we met, nor can I imagine my life now that he is gone. We have been through everything together. I fell in love with him the second he walked into my life as a little furball kitten and was still in love with him when he went away.
He had been sick for a little while, and has been suffering very much these past few days and probably longer. I wouldn't know because he was such a strong cat and such a little trooper. Unfortunately I knew from the moment he came home from the vet yesterday that something was terribly wrong, and he went downhill from there. This morning was his time to say goodbye to me. He was in the company of myself and his Auntie Linda who loved him very much, so it's comforting to know that he was surrounded by those he loved. It's also a comfort to know that he will no longer have to suffer. Even at his very worst condition, he refused to let go, but I knew I had to set him free. I couldn't be selfish and put him through more.
I was able to share a very private bonding moment with him before we left. I talked to him about all our interesting moments we shared together and apologized for anything I ever regretted or did to hurt him. I regret not spending more time with him lately and given him more cuddles and petting. My little man deserved more than this world had to offer him. I'm sure he is being crowned King as we speak, and he is enjoying everything Rainbow Bridge has to offer.
I will always, always, and always remember my beloved little guy, and I know we will always be together in spirit. We was my first real pet, and no other animal could EVER replace the love and bonding he and I shared together. He was my life, my everything.
Thank you again to everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. For those of you who only knew him in cyberworld, you would have fallen in love with him.
