Dear Carol, I'm so very sorry to hear about you two losses, so close together. What heartache you must feel! Your story hits so close to home for me. We had to let our 16+ year-old Bengal Cat, T.J., go to the Rainbow Bridge on March 9th. After ruling out everything else, it was clear that he had a brain tumor. Such devastation! His ability to navigate was totally stripped away from him by the last day, but he was still very aware of life around him, and he was still eating, drinking, using his litter box (with my assistance, since he couldn't stand), and he still had his big, loud, rumbling purr. I didn't know how I was going to look into those gorgeous eyes for the last time, but I found the strength to assist him because I knew it was my final gift of love to him. Bless you for giving that same gift to Ben and Cassy when their times came to make that journey. You released them from a future of suffering, knowing your own suffering would just begin. There is no greater gift than that. Both of your Bridge Kids were so blessed to have found their way to your loving home. Please come back and tell us more about Ben and Cassy when you're able to. I look forward to getting to know them through the stories you will share here. You, your family, and your beautiful angels, Ben and Cassy, are in m y thoughts and prayers.
My heart is battered and bruised, but I will not let it break. It holds such precious cargo, I must protect it now. (Susie Squillions)
