Orion...We shall never forget :)

Lost pretty much my best friend about 40 days ago he was only 1.5 years old. A few of you probably saw my introduction thread but I figured I would post some pictures of him. It helps me cope

June 2011 when he was 11-13 weeks old, caught him meowing...looks like hes laughing







Always slept next to me when I would work



little xbox playin'



protecting the clean clothes

I'm so sorry - what happened?

He reminds me of my Oz who is currently about a year old.

thanks

I got my girlfriend some flowers and she brought them home from work. He ended up eating half of a lily pedal and we found out to late to save him from kidney failure. We had no clue most breeds of lilys are deadly to cats, even the pollen is deadly. Theres about a 14-18 hour window to save them with fluids through IV. It was around 40-48 hours when we realized what was going on.

Although I've had cats for longer than many forum members have lived, I didn't know about this until fairly recently. Scary really what we don't know.

He looked truly beautiful.

A couple vets I talked to said it was a newly found out fact that they are, he said about 10 years ago it really wasnt known in the vet community.

About a month ago I googled my brains out and looked at many sites and lists of EVERYTHING thats poisonous to cats. Its amazing the simple things around the house plant and food wise that can kill them. Im 28 now and Iv been around cats since I was 5-6 years old.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Love the pictures - looks like he was the best cat buddy ever, and such a character!

I'm so sorry about your loss. He looks like he was quite the happy little camper. He was quite a handsome little guy.

From having dogs I know that a good amount of plants and flowers are poisonous to critters so in my house I just have fake plants and cat grass and outside in the yard I make sure that I only plant pet friendly plants.

So sad for you. It's great you have photos and many good memories and the knowledge you made him so happy during his short life.
