GREETINGS

OWEN

IMG_4423

Last night Owen had some sort of spell he rested comfortably and I took him to the Vets this am.  He had a stroke.  He had thyroid and heart problems which go hand in hand.  There was nothing to do.  Now he is gone.

People have wondered why I would take a 10 year old cat with medical problems in the first place.  I say why not.   Yes it does open you up to heart break and I thought for sure I would have him longer than  months.  He was given up because he was sick I can’t imagine that.  And in the shelter for months.  When I saw his little picture I had to take him home with Sam.  It took him quite some time to feel comfortable here.  And  a few months ago I heard him purr for the first time.  I knew then that he had settled in.  I will miss him and am so grateful that I had a chance to know him.

Sad about Owen. So heartwarming that he had a comfortable home and someone to love him at the end of his life.

I was so sorry to hear about you losing Owen. I am so glad he got to spend some happy months with you, instead of in a cage someplace. Hope that thought will comfort you as you miss him.

😢 so sad. But at least he had a few months in your cosy home. He is at peace now, waiting with all the others at the Rainbow Bridge. Hugs.

Dear Carole, Owen was another of God’s creatures who found love, caring and safety with you. He is purring contentedly waiting at the Rainbow Bridge. He had a wonderful home and so much love with you. I know how much you must miss him.
