|11:49 am - RIP Batty|
Batty wasn't doing well last night, he looked sicker and hadn't eaten. The last time he looked this bad we'd taken him into the vet and they'd given us more meds and some other suggestions, we tried all those and I was considering taking him into the vet today, or at least calling to see if there was more that we could do. teaotter found him dead this morning. He spent last night in my lap until I went to sleep. I'm very sad that amberite was out of town when he died. I'm glad he had me though - when Alice was in China for 10 months in 2007-2008, Batty mostly became my cat, but he went back to Alice when she got back. However, he was still a cat that I loved. I'll be going to the humane society to get another cat for me this weekend. Here is a picture of Batty before he got sick, and one of Buddy, who may be 16, but who is thankfully still in excellent health and is getting cuddled a lot today.

Current Mood: sad
sorry for the loss of Batty.
My condolences. It’s good that he knew he was well-loved right to the end.
I'm so sorry. I'm glad you all were able to spend a lot of time with him since his diagnosis.
I think we should ask at the shelter to try and meet some paired cats - it's often harder to rehome them and I feel like out of our sadness comes an opportunity for small creatures to find love.
Like these cats
- who were coming up in search results months ago, too.
Thank you for taking such good care of Batty. I am indebted to you for this. I love you.
Update: I just went through CAT's site looking for bonded pairs (Humane Society doesn't have any at the moment) and compiled a big list of cats to meet.
Can I have that icon? It's neat.
Sure. I got it from toraks.

So sorry for your lost--and somehow I missed DJ's passing. Double condolences.
*hugs* I'm so sorry; I'm glad he had a good life with all of you, though.
Oh geez, I'm really sorry. Batty looks enough like our cats that I'm going to go hug them now.
I'm very sorry for your loss.

My condolences. I'm glad you'll be getting one or more new cats soon, though; it will be good to see at least something good come out of this.

Condolences to you and yours. Batty sounded like a good kitty.
Thinking of you all - my condolences love.
