Memories_of_Marmalade


Dear Michelle,

I am very saddened to read of the loss of your beloved Nubbins. By your words it is easy to tell how loving and devoted you were to him. And I am glad that he experienced such love, kindness and compassion during his lifetime for as long as he did.

You did what the situation called for, you took your boy to the Vet's to seek treatment. Nubbin's knew that. He would never blame you. Cats are very smart. They may not like the Vets but they know why they are there. My cat Marmalade despised the Vets. He would act very calm, cool, mellow, collected and innocent, but boy oh boy when they would bring him into the back all Hell would break loose. There would be the sound of breaking glass, things being thrown against walls, people crashing into one another etc. And when the nurses (some of them were males) would return Marmalade to the lobby where I was waiting, Marmalade would be all calm again in his cat carrier but the nurses would be white as sheets, with their hair all tousled, their lips quivering and they would have thousand yard stares as if they had been in battle. They would say "He is really pissed off today. BUT if the Vets treatment was going well? And Marmalade was feeling better from it (in other words if the Vet had done his job well?) Marmalade would cooperate fully and even adjust his position on an examination table for him to receive care etc. 

Again, you did what you needed to do, based upon what was required of you. Cats in the wild only live 2 to 5 years on average. That is the time that they are biologically designed and engineered to live for. I'm assuming your Nubbins was an outdoor cat too, as you wrote he disappeared for a few days. There is a saying that I have read from 3 different Vets (2 from the U.S. and 1 from the U.K.) "You treat one thing, it triggers another." This is the truth of things when it comes to treating our pets. 

I hope you continue to heal and allow your inner healing mechanism to do its thing. You were born with one, it is your birthright.

Kind regards and my sincerest condolences,
James
