We Love You Oreo!


How do I break this piece of news? Oreo is one of the longest cats that have been with me, gracing my days with his sweet meows...

At about 10 years old now, he had been in my care for almost 8 years. I adopted him when my single cat, Candy was on heat. So a breeder, now a friend of mine, suggested that I take Oreo for Candy. Oreo has fathered a few beautiful cats in my household including Minty. And his grandchildren, Sugar and Munchkin. I will definitely miss him dearly.

We noticed that he'd been having difficulty going to the toilet the last couple of days. Upon close monitoring I decided to take him to the vet this morning, after confirming that he will not be surgically treated based upon the symptoms that I described over the phone. I was about to place the carrier in the car, and greeted him, but no answer. Not even a faint weak sound heard. The minute I took a look at him, I knew he's no longer around....

Words cannot describe how I feel right now. My only consolation is that he did not suffer for long, or go through any harsh treatments, as I've seen happened to my friend's cat who had the same disease. Its a normal old cats disease called PKD or renal failure.

Farewell Oreo..... We love you!

Hi Anya

How are you? Are you feeling better now? Thanks for your well wishes. I am also still teary now...

AL said...

Awww that's sad. Oreo will be okay, I know it hurts but sometimes we have to cope with it. Same thing happened to me when Amici died. I'n gonna light a candle for Oreo. I hope Amici and Oreo will meet in Rainbow Bridge.

I also have pet named Oreo but he is a black lab.

Gattina said...

So sorry for you, I know how you feel it's horrible. Only time heals, but he will be forever in your heart.
He became quite old and I agree with you at this age we shouldn't insist to keep them alive by all means, it would be very egoistic.

Hi Shah

Thanks. I am ok, and somehow suspected this coming, except not this soon. But however 'prepared' you are, still you can't help feel sad... :(

Chahya said...

Owh YD!
*Hugs*

I remember my MIL's late Siamese cat had the same symptoms before it slept and never woke up.

I can imagine how you feel.
You take care YD.

Hugs.

katztales said...

Poor Oreo, what dreadful news! Purrs from all of us.

Ydiana said...

Thanks Chahya. I still missed him so much, but thank God theres still Minty, Honey, Sugar and Munchkin. The other day Sugar had a fever and I frantically brought her to the vet. luckily she came around back to health a few days later. Positive thinking works.
