Default RayRay You will be SO missed

Today I had to take RayRay to the vet for the final time.
I brought him home when he was 13-14 from Carolines kids. He was FIV positive and such a sweet boy. It has been my honor to care for him in his senior years. He was already starting to go blind when he came home with us. His teeth were in horrible shape due to the FIV. About two years ago he was diagnosed with CRF. Poor boy certainly never deserved all of those health problems! He was always such a sweet cat. My cuddler. These last few months I have tried to spoil him and do everything possible to keep him healthy and happy. I have been assist feeding him for a few months now. Unfortunately sub-Q fluids did not work for him. He just hated having anyone mess with him so much that it was miserable for him so I stopped that treatment. For the last few days I watched his health take a nose dive. There was no longer anything I could do to make him comfortable so I had to make that horrible decision. He will be very missed.







My angel Ray is truly an angel now.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Sue. I know how much RayRay meant to you. Run free little one.

I'm so sorry. How old was he? He was a beautiful cat, and how wonderful that you were willing to adopt a senior - especially one with health problems - and give him a happy life until the end.

RayRay

I always thought he was a very old soul in a little cat's body. He couldn't have found a better home than the one he had with you, Sue. He was so very, very loved, and I know he gave as much love back to you.

Cinderella has another friend to welcome at the Bridge.

He was truly an angel, his pictures show it! You were blessed to share your life with him, and he was blessed to have you. My sympathies to you on his passing...

Oh Sue... Words fail me right now. I know how much you loved him. Take comfort in knowing that Ray Ray is now reunited with Tucker, Buzzy, Casper, Tweezer, and someone else whose name is escaping me at the moment. Smokey was there to take him to that special part of the Rainbow Bridge where all the CF cats are. (((((hugs)))))

What a lovely cat he looks - and what a lovely person you must be to have done so much for him in his last years.

Thank you everyone. The CF place at the bridge must be a very special place.

I am so sorry about RayRay. He was such a beautiful boy and I can tell he had a wonderful time on earth with you. He is up there now running and playing with my boy William, young and happy as a kitten again. We will see them again one day. Stay strong.
