We did get the home vet. I have been crying for hours before and after. Our little black ^Orion^ was allowed to leave us about 4:30pm mst. As we all know the pain, my life will never be the same. Now we have to care for Nova and ANdromeda, the 2 likely to miss him most. :(

David, I am typing this through tears.  My heart is breaking for you over the loss of your sweet Orion.  I so remember when he joined your happy little family.

He had a wonderfully long and blessed life and was so very blessed to have you as his family, just as you were blessed to be touched by his beautiful soul.  He will always be with you in your heart, and I like to believe that he will always be with you from the other side.

My love and prayers are with you all.  So very sorry for your loss.

Peggy and Laila

Thanks all for the well wishes. As we all know, if it did not hurt so when they left then having them woud be no different than buying a vase and placing it on the floor by a dish of food each day and petting it. There would be no connection.

It is funny, I went by my neighbor's yesterday to help them with something and Jim noted that I looked really tired and worn out. I told him about ^Orion^ (they are animal lovers) and he realized why I looked so bad. My face is red from salted water and my head has always hurt with heavy emotions and I AM tired.

I am working from home today and when I put out the extra fod for Nova in the kitchen I had to look up. ^Orion^ woud be sleeping on the chair in the living room about 30 feet away and he always knew what I did and would get up and come over to muscle in on the food. I had to keep doing a double take, like I kept seeing movement through the corner of my eye. I miss him so much. I miss miss all of them, as we all miss our little fur babies.

Now Nova is getting too thin for comfort and it is time to take him to be checked out again. I'll also have Apollo go shortly after. I dislike now having 3 senior/old cats at once.

That's a good way of explaining it.  20 years ago I ran across a poem called "We Chose Tears".  We could have chosen, as you said, a vase, or even a stuffed toy.  They would outlast us, but they can't make us happy and we can't make them happy.  So, in choosing the furkids, we know what's going to happen.  And, we still choose.  Of course at this point, I wouldn't bet money that I'd outlive a kitten, but as long as I know they'll still be taken care of,  I'll keep choosing tears.  John

David The tears are flowing here for your loss of Orion  I am not good with words but I think Peggy said it best. But Blackberry and Rosie will welcome him and show him around and I have a candle burning in his memory. Orion and Hamlet and now together again. Glad you were able to get the home vet I wish I had known about Lap Of Love home vet in Knoxville before it was a lot better for me.Tim

I do wish we had a home vet here.  So many times I made that awful trip with sick and terrified furkids.  Maybe we will someday.  John
