The Story

Boo Boo, or as he is affectionately known by all who love him, Mr. Boo, is a four-year-old black and white spotted kitty. His person is my 74-year-old mom. Mom is on Social Security, disabled, and is on a fixed income. To date, vet bills for Mr. Boo, including four days in hospital, are over $1000-. We picked him up and brought him home on 3/30/15, but today, the 31st, he is back in the hospital. It is believed that he ate something that has poisoned him as his kidneys were failing, his red and white blood cell counts were low, and he was anemic. After a transfusion and four days of fluids, all his numbers improved; however, today he didn't eat and had trouble walking. Before we euthanize this wonderful kitty, if it comes to that, we'd like to try all that we can. He and my mom have a wonderful relationship--he's a wonderful companion to her and vice versa--and we want to give him a chance to get well. I'll update after we hear from the vet.

The Worst News Possible:  Mr. Boo had an ultrasound today, and he has malignant tumours throughout his bones that have spread to his spleen. It is just a matter of time until it invades his entire body. My mother made the difficult but humane decision to have him put to sleep. He will be euthanized this evening after the vet's working hours.

Both my mother and I are heartbroken and devastated. Mr. Boo was the sweetest, smartest, kindest kitty--he slept with my mom when she was ill, he played hide and seek with her (hysterical), he talked to her about his day, and loved nothing than to escape into the apartment hallways and run at top speed...for fun.

I will miss his charming mow-oo and his delicate moth-wing ears. I wish I could be there to usher him over the rainbow bridge, but I cannot, and we do not want to prolong his suffering.

So now we are left with nothing but memories....and the bill.

You are/were so very loved, Mr. Boo, by everyone who ever met you. We will never forget you. We'll meet again.  Requiescat in pace.
