I had to put my 'Thumper' cat to sleep a couple of weeks ago. The hardest thing I ever had to do. He was so loyal, trusting and quite a companion,he was good company for me especially late at night when I could not sleep-I have insomnia.
I will never get another cat. They die to soon and the bond formed makes it very painful when they pass on. I think of him constantly, everyone loved him-he had such a great personality and was quite humorous in how he would dash around the house. I would take him for walks and people found it amusing that he would follow me around. I never needed a leash for him.
He really changed the way I view animals. I think there is a lot more to them than many realize--their intelligence, memory,and ability to sense your moods are very impressive. He was a himalayan.
Life goes on but will never be the same again without Thumper. I can see him now on the bed watching me as I type this. He would do that every night as I sat on the computer, or when I lay in bed reading he would lay beside me and put his little paws across my stomach. When he wanted attention or to be petted he would make a swiping motion towards you with one of his paws. Oh Lord-how I miss Thumper.
Sounds like what I just went through with my Thumper Cat...kidney failure. I did try giving activated charcoal to get rid of the toxins that kidney failure produces...not expensive...I think it did lessen some of his pain but unfortunately I did not start doing it in time. He got to where he would not eat at all and was rapidly losing weight. There have been studies that show elderly humans with kidney failure who refuse to undergo dialysis show marked improvement when given activated charcoal.
