Our sweet Maurice is feeling worse today. He has been having some trouble breathing off and on and is getting very weak. Da peeps are thinking they are gonna have to take him to the vet tomorrow to help him cross. And it are breakin all of our hearts. Just look at dat pretty face, how could ya not luv him? And if ya knew him, ya'd know he wuz just da sweetest kitty.
Last night, I hopped up on da ottoman and kept him company for a while.
Here are some pics of Maurice and his momma. Dey luv each other so much.
My momma luvs Maurice a lot too.
Da peeps took Maurice outside so he could enjoy da sunshine a lil today. We's all inside kitties and Maurice had never been outside. Da mommas noticed how Maurice's black fur has a blue-green iridescence to it when it are out in da sun.
Going outside seemed to perk Maurice up some and get him out of his funk he's been in. I think he wanted to go kill a bird before he has to leave.
Watch out for da fluffy paw!
Da peeps luv Maurice's toe floofs, dey's just da cutest.
This nasty #$%^ FIP seems to really be takin it out of our Moe Man. He's either sleepin or lyin there wif his eyes open like he is asleep. He's also been tryin to go off and hide, but da peeps aren't lettin him do that one. Right now, he are resting on the ottoman, but we're pretty sure he does not have very long left. Dis disease are real nasty, it seems to have aged Maurice tons in just a month or so.
Dis are a picture from August. Ya can see how much healthier Maurice looks and how full his face wuz. He used to have a big hinder dat he luved to swish around, but now he has protruding hipbones.
Please send him some purrs to help him feel a lil more comfortable before he has to make his journey.
Nobody are ready to say goodbye to Maurice. Dis just sucks. He are only four and he just grew into his full size (we think he is part Maine Coon and dey don't stop growin till round 4). He are so pretty and sweet, everybody who meets him luvs him. Da peeps all luved him from when dey first met him at the animal shelter a lil over 4 years ago and he wuz just a lil sweet kitten named Bingle. Well, at least he got a better name.
Dis are just unfair. Maurice deserved a long wonderful life. He are not gonna get it.
