The gurlz (Possum and Cadbury) seem to be accepting that their 'brother' has gone!
They are not quite as flighty as they have been the previous couple of days,and Cadbury is looking for 'loves'
which is of some comfort to me.

Jesse ,along with his 'brother' Billie the Kid will always be in a special corner of my heart.

Rainbow Bridge

Jesse and the Rainbow bridge

Last evening I had to make the heartbreaking decision to send Jesse across the Rainbow Bridge........
The report from his Vet was that he had a particularly aggresive tumour on his lower left jaw, which would require particularly severe surgery just to try and remove it.I felt it was unfair to cause him more trauma and discomfort .....he deserved to die with dignity.
Our caring and sympathetic Vet sent Jesse on his final journey as he snuggled in my arms .

Jesse was a major part of our family for nearly 16 years,being first saved from being a street kid as a young kitten by our daughter,and then as her circumstances changed,coming to live with us some eight years ago.

Jesse was an incredible personality.........totally cool about everything;nothing fazed him and he didnt have a mean bone in his body; cheeky,mischevious and King of our other three cats.
If he had one fetish,it was shoes!
As soon as one of his humans shed their shoes,Jesse was into them----rolling, wrestling, cuddling, and finally sleeping on them.
He was true foreman material.whatever his humans were doing,he had to check out that it was being done properly.

Billie,his "brother" for 14 years would have been waiting for him last night at Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks Jesse for your company;you will be sadly missed

Update on Jesse

No Xrays or surgery yesterday,after all!

Bloods taken from him necessitated him being catheterised and given extra fluids over night.

Am awaiting phone call from Vet "anytime" to tell me how things went for him this morning.

Will keep you posted!

And above is Jesse in happier times marking his favourite Bauhinia tree before we moved .

My black "panther is one unhappy puss!
For over a month he's been battling some mouth trouble and as regular visits to a new vet plus antibiotics haven't alleviated the problem,tomorrow morning he has Xrays and possible surgery.
As my old gentleman is 16 years old we can only hope the treatment is not too drastic for him.
So,I may not be blogging for a few days as his health will be my main priority. Posted by Picasa
