Figment's Last Days - May 2005

Figment's Last Days With Us (May-05)
Resting, but not eating or drinking

Figment at the Condo - Dec 2004

The crowded condo gave figment very little free space and  very limited access to fresh air and sunshine (Dec-04)

In May 2005, we sadly had to say good-bye to our good friend. Figment's health suddenly, and without warning, deteriorated. His frequent habit of throwing up had increased to almost daily since we moved to our new condo in July 2003. We found a good vet that had treated him with steroids, but he found little relief. In March 2005, he suddenly went blind in his right eye. Dave planted a small patch of "cat" grass for him, but Figment was never well enough to test it. Like January 2003, he again developed a "blockage" that we followed with a full Xray, Catgrass / Wheatgrass - May 2005blood test and "unblocking". He felt better for almost two weeks, then became "blocked" again, and refused to eat. Sadly, he did not eat or drink for 5 more days. We realized over time, and through 2 more vet visits, that his condition was terminally serious. On his last doctor visit, after he had lost so much weight, the vet could easily feel that a mass had formed in his abdomen. Figment had lived a full life with us in Utah and Florida. He had enjoyed the run of our big house for many years and retired to our small, cramped condo and its little patio. He is now at peace, and was able to leave us without a trauma and without going through an extended period of suffering or pain. We take comfort in that thought during our time of great sadness over the loss of our good friend.

Are we done playing on the computer?
Can we go take our nap now?

I love to help mom with her jigsaw puzzles.
Mostly, I appreciate the hours of sitting quietly.

Don't call me "Patches" - Jan 2003

I got sick and had to have Emergency Surgery
on a Saturday night with lots of people paying
attention to me (of course).

I'm feeling better now, and I am on a diet of strictly 
canned food! It wasn't funny when they 
nicknamed me "Patches" (Jan-03)
