Benny will cross the Bridge tomorrow

 The time has come for our Benny to end his journey on this earth. A couple of days ago he seemed "quieter" to me, but when I saw he could no longer lift his legs to get into the litter box, we knew it was time.

We had wanted to have an in-home vet come to the house, but sadly the vet I'd called a few weeks ago is unavailable until the 14th. We are NOT waiting that long, so I called our regular vet and she kindly offered to come in tomorrow morning (she works part time).

This is likely the last photo I'll ever take of him. I was sitting next to him last night. I will miss those eyes, pleading for more pets.

We'll sure miss our sweet boy. I'll do a tribute post later.

I didn't know Benny, but those eyes of his seem to tell me all I need to know. What a beautiful soul. Godspeed, Benny.

TBT: Sometimes you plan for helping a cat over The Bridge. Sometimes it comes by surprise. I've done both and I don't know which is harder. Mostly likely both are equally difficult in different ways.

Our Best Purrs Of Comfort to you...

Diane said...

It's so hard knowing it is their time to cross, but not being ready to say goodbye. My condolences.
