Milo passed away tonight

Our 13 year-old sweet Russian Blue just passed away. (He is in my signature pic.) When he was 8 weeks old, we found him beside a dumpster in South Florida before a hurricane and brought him into our family. We moved him from Miami to Dallas 10 years ago. He always had respiratory issues, and we laughed because he snored so loud when he slept.

He recently lost so much weight, but he still had a big tummy. The vet said he may have had tumors. His health decline happened really quickly.

He ate canned food up until yesterday and was still walking around the house, so I guess we were lucky because he didn't seem to suffer. He laid down tonight and didn't wake up.

I'm so glad to be a part of this community because you understand what we are going through. Such an important part of our lives taken from us after a short 13 years.

We still have our 3 year-old Toby, who was right there when Milo passed away, but we are devastated. Thank you for all your support.

Our boy, Toby

Milo, Sasha and Misha, we miss you!

Much sympathy. Yes, it really really hurts when they go. And many people just brush off the pain of others, "oh it's only a cat, what's wrong with you?" No, it's a member of the family! (Poor silly people who never knew the bond of person to pet. Just think of what they miss!) He was very lucky to have you, no doubt you saved his life.

I'm so sorry for your loss. he was a lucky lucky boy to have you and to also have had what sounds like an easy passing. I pray that I and my own kitties are as fortunate when the time comes. What a wonderful life he had with you!

Oh my gosh, that photo of Milo chilling with feet crossed is precious. I am so sorry he had to leave you but he is pain free and in peace.

I am so sorry about Milo. I hope you can find a little bit of comfort knowing that he passed peacefully, at home, and without suffering.

What a beautiful face he had, and what great memories those two pictures will always bring for you.

I hope Toby is ok. Hugs to you and head scratches for Toby.

Wonderful expression on Milo's face, and love his sleeping on his back pic. Yes, 13 years does seem young, as my beloved Alkee passed on a year ago at 12 yrs. I still miss her, but the consolation I have if that I will see her again in the spiritual world. So sorry for your loss, he's running free at the Rainbow Bridge, waiting for you some day.
