It has been very sad here since ^Leo^ left.
We had patterns with ^Leo^, and it is difficult to just stop them. 8pm at night I would warm his sub-q fluids and Perseus would jump on the counter and play with the warm water funning from the faucet. I would them brush Perseus while I waited for the fluids to be ready. Then I would get some food and let Andromeda and Apollo in the bathroom and Perseus would go into the shower, behind the curtain. I would give Andie and Apollo a bit of food and toss some to the curtain and it would land between the curtain and the shower side. Perseus would pull on the curtain and the food would fall to him, much like a slot machine drops money. Then I would put the fluids on the IV pole and get ^Leo^. I know he disliked getting them, but I would feed him a snack while I brushed him and sand songs to him. I would toss more to Perseus from time to time as well. When his fluids were done, I would hold him and bring him to the couch where Donna waited for him. Nova and Orion also got a little snack then as well.
At night he slept in a heated cup next to my head, and it is now empty.
Donna had routines she did with him as well and I know she misses him equally.
Now we have a picture of him up in the TV room, with some cards we received, his urn and we are on his second candle. I will post a picture of his urn, but I need to wait a bit forst.
^Leo^ was such a sweet cat. I miss him so much. I am finding that as I get older, the sorrow and pain of each loss increases. It really is painful. Of course I realize that had there been no love and life sharing there could be no sorrow, and the depth of the woe only is a showing to the height of the love. For now I am still very sad, not eating well and find when I think on him (like I am now as I write this) I cry. I know that will last some time.
I bought a leaf for the Tree Of Life at Save-A-Pet, where he was adopted from. Each Leaf is a thousand dollar donation. Now ^Hamlet^ and ^Leo^ have one there. Though ^Itchy^ was not from there I will get him a leaf as well soon.
I know ^Leo^ would have wanted me to thank every member here who used to see him on camera, read his posts and prayed for him. Thank you all.
