Lilypie 2nd Birthday Ticker
May 02, 2006
Today was Harleys last day. He didn't do well overnight and the vet gave us a few options this morning. He could have lived if we would have opted for surgery that would have removed his manhood (by manhood I do mean penis). We didn't want him to live that way. It just wasn't the right thing for us to do. We miss him so much.

We took this picture a few hours before taking him to the emergency vet Sunday night. You can see the pain in his eyes.

I know this sounds kind of creepy but he is being cremated, and we will get him back in a beautiful copper kitty shaped urn. We just want him here with us. No pet has ever meant more to either of us and this was so unexpected.

You are loved Harley.

    Oh no!!! I'm so so so sorry. I cried so hard when Houdini got his eye infection, and that was totally easily treatable...I can't even imagine. ::hugs:: poor kitty.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. There's nothing strange about the cremation or keeping his ashes. I still have my kitty Misty's ashes, and Miago's ashes are up on the mantle (along with a paw print). For us, pets are family... and how many people keep their grandma's ashes on the mantle? Lots! Harley was a loved kitty, and he will always be with you! Hugs to you both!!!
