This is going to be a difficult post to write. *breathe* This past week, my sweet angel furbaby Towane, passed away due to renal failure. It came on suddenly out of nowhere and progressed at an alarming rate. Just last week, Towane, who was 11.5 years old but kitten-like in nature, was spazzing, purring, cuddling, and being his playful, adorable self. There was absolutely no indication that things were going to take a sudden turn for the worse.
After noticing he was constantly vomiting and not being able to hold down any food or fluids, we immediately took him to the vet. We quickly discovered that his kidneys were giving out, so we brought him to the emergency animal hospital and made sure he had X-rays, ultrasounds, blood tests, IV fluids, painkillers, and lots of love. His kidney (the one he had left) was operating at 5%, and the fluids he was receiving were not making their way to his bladder. This is when we began to realize there wasn’t anything we could do reverse the damage; his body was rapidly shutting down. We knew we had to say goodbye and ease his suffering. My hubby and I were with him to the end as he passed away in our arms.
He was the sweetest kitty I have ever known (and that’s coming from a crazy cat lady), and he was a total mama’s boy – needed to be near me all the times. He followed me everywhere, and when there was a mommy lap to be had, he was on it. One touch, one glance, any attention equalled instapurr. He was also so sweet and gentle with my two wee ones, which always melted my heart.
Towane/Towanikins,/T-Dub/Towaney Wonder/Towaney Pants, I love you so ridiculously much!!! Thank you so much for being a part of our lives and giving me the opportunity to be your mommy. You were so beautiful inside and out (seriously a stunner and beyond kind-hearted), you made me a better person and helped prep me for raising my human babies, and I’ll never ever stop loving you. Ever. ♥ xoxo
