Susan, I am so sorry. I thought you would have had a little longer left withhim than this. It just hurts so much.

Tatty's mum, Fluff, is very confused about where he is, so we are trying to keep things as normal as possible for her - but we have had to lock her in, because she will probably roam off looking for him otherwise.

Yes, he went downhill very quickly at the end. He woke me up at 12.30 on Thursday morning for cuddles (not unusual!) and was OK Thursday night but had a very bad night on Friday, difficult breathing and getting distressed, so Guy had to take him to the vet on Saturday.

The vet asked if we wanted him put down on Wendesday when he was diagnosed, but Takenoko was still quite lively and chatting away (meowing & calling out as soon as he heard our voices at the vets) so we couldn't do it then.

Oh Susan I'm so sorry. This happened all so fast. And poor mommy cat looking for him. How devastating for you all. I hope you all heal soon.

He was a beautiful puss Susan. It's so very very hard loosing a pet, and having to make decisions about when they need your help to go to the vet. I am truly sorry, and thinking of you. With love, Jill
