It has been 6 weeks since I had to make the decision to have my silver tabby cat- Moonshine euth.  He had a tumor on his pancreas.    After the diagnosis we brought him home and gave him whatever he wanted to eat and I cuddled with him as much as possible and he would cuddle back and purr.  It is so bittersweet to be snuggling with a beloved pet and know that in the near future you would give almost anything for the moment that you now have.

I fell in love with him the moment I saw him when he was a kitten- I had never seen a silver tabby before.  And it just worked out that he was injured shortly after arriving at the shelter- and I took him home to foster him and get him better.  So he truly was a cat that was meant to be mine because I could not have adopted a kitten just because I thought he was pretty (we had 3 cats already).  But when I brought him home, cared for him and he recovered from his radial nerve damage in his front leg after a month- I was already in love and my husband had to OK me adopting him.

It has been 6 weeks and I am still crying as I type this.  I cried over him so much when he was a kitten and I thought his leg might have to amputated, then I cried tears of joy when he recovered on his own and now I cry tears of sorrow that I can no longer cuddle my unique (color and personality) Mooney.

The picture is of him laying on my pillow that had a heating pad on it- on our couch- basically a cat magnet.

What a gorgeous kitty! (((((((((hugs)))))))))) It's funny, when I was a little girl, my first cat was a marmalade tabby and I loved him immediately, but my mom wasn't too thrilled with him. After he was gone she insisted we only have Siamese cats, and felt the need to get them from breeders so they could be papered. Not that this was a bad thing, for I loved them too, but there is something unique in the personality of the basic tom tab. They are wonderful cats. Some are roamers and then there's the ones that are pure power snugglers.

I'm sorry to hear Moonshine (what an awesome name!) has gone to the Bridge, but even sadder that you have struggled alone with this for 6 weeks and were only now able to post about him. I'm sure he's watching you from those lovely green fields with warm sunshine. It is good that you did have time to make those special memories too.
We're thinking of you here, Katnip! ((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))

Oh my gosh! He looks just like my Buddy! We had him put down a couple years ago because he had cancer as well. He was such a lover and I miss him so much! I'm sorry that you lost your kitty, he was very beautiful! Pretty green eyes too!

So sorry to hear about the loss of your kitty. He was gorgeous and I also really like the name. They bring us so much joy and it's so hard to let them go. I'm sure you gave him the best life he could have had. **Hugs**
