Barney Good-Bye.

Last edited Wed Jan 15, 2020, 04:33 AM - Edit history (2)

We had to send Barney, one of our two black-and-white harlequin cats on his way today. Took him to the vet because he'd been having a couple of very hard weeks, and a decline of several more weeks before that. He started losing the standard ability to eat and to eliminate. He’d lost a noticeable amount of weight and I realized with a jolt that I could now feel every bone in his spine, where he had been nice ‘n’ fat and well-padded. He used to be built like a four-legged linebacker.

The diagnosis this morning was as bad as we feared. The X-ray showed cancer everywhere you looked and some serious blockages in the least opportune places. And I noticed him walking with a slight limp just yesterday. So we helped him to the Rainbow Bridge.

Barney is probably getting reacquainted with Goldie, our dog, who headed off that way last July 12th. Our little-old-lady tabby cat dB left us in 2018. They all knew each other for quite a few years. And I’m trying to remind myself that Barney’s not in any pain anymore. Helps me think it’ll somehow help easing my own heartache (well, sounds good anyway). He'd been acting like he was hurting for a little while lately.

Barney was 12-something. Got him and Betty as itty bitty litter mates in late summer 2008. They were the two little ones huddled together in the middle of the floor of a very large, tall kitten enclosure. There had to be 15-18 kittens in there, exploring every inch of the place, every climbing tree and multi-level scratching post, they were all over the place, and here were those two cuddling together, oblivious to all the activity around them. We didn’t have the heart to separate them so we took ‘em both.

I'm a mess. Husband is hanging in there a little better than I am. Already warned our kids if they try to call me and I don't pick up, that'll be why. They understand, as I know they do. Significant others also.
Even when you objectively suspect it's coming, that doesn't make it any easier.

Pouring out my heart about it here does help a little. Love your fur babies. Hold them close. Take this moment. Now. While they’re with you. They never last as long as we want them to.

We’ll always love you, Boonito.

1. it's so hard

they take a piece of our heart with them

Grieve not,

nor speak of me with tears,

but laugh and talk of me

as if I were beside you…

I loved you so –

‘twas Heaven here with you.

3. I try to 'attend' the Rainbow Bridge ceremony when I can.

It's online and there is a lot of God stuff, but I don't mind it too much. A lot of folks who are going through the same thing and some like me much further on in the journey are there just for support and to take part in the 'ceremony'.

https://www.rainbowsbridge.com/CandleLighting_Tribute/Monday_Candlelighting.htm

It's every Monday at 9:00pm EST.

" Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye

I had a scare with my Snowy in December. Thought it was going to be stomach cancer. I bawled all day waiting for the vet to call with test results. Good news. I'm going to be a wreck when her time does come.

The fur babies are special. My heart goes out to you.

my heart goes out to you..we here at DU love our pets so much and we can all relate. They leave their pawprints on your heart. But they know how much they were loved they really do. I remember when I lost my Chloe cat, she was with us for a long time, there isn't one day where I don't think about her.

Remember we are here to listen and support you during this time. You will see him over Rainbow bridge.:

14. I'm so sorry! Last Monday we had to release our 20-something lab mix. She slept on

Blankets next to my bed, so I always notice her absence. And when I bring the deer in for his bottle, we don't have to make sure we don't step on her anymore. I don't like it I liked watching out for her, giving her meds every day, syringing food into her. She wasn't a problem to me! She didn't have to leave! But she wanted to. She was done with arthritis, no muscles, being wobbly. So I gave in.

I know how you feel!❤

19. All of my pets have made me a better human.

On January 4, 1993, the cat in this book and the books that preceded it was put to sleep in Kerrville, Texas, by DR. W.H. Hoegemeyer and myself. Cuddles was fourteen years old, a respectable age. She was as close to me as any human being I have ever known.
Cuddles and I spent many years together, both in New York, where I found her as a little kitten on the street in Chinatown, and later on the ranch in Texas. She was always with me, on the table, on the bed, by the fireplace, beside the typewriter, on top of my suitcase when I returned from a trip.
I dug Cuddles' grave with a silver spade, in the little garden by the stream behind the old green trailer where both of us lived in the summertime. Her burial shroud was my old New York sweatshirt and in the grave with her is a can of tuna and a cigar.
A few days ago I received a sympathy note from Bill Hoegemeyer, the veterinarian. It opened with a verse by Irving Townsend: "We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle…"
Now as I write this, on a gray winter day by the fireside, I can almost feel her light tread moving from my head and my heart down through my fingertips to the keys of the typewriter. People may surprise you with unexpected kindness. Dogs have a depth of loyalty that we often seem unworthy of. But the love of a cat is a blessing, a privilege in this world.
They say when you die and go to heaven all the dogs and cats you ever owned in your life come running to meet you.
Until that day, rest in peace Cuddles.

22. Just because you do the right thing does not mean it won't hurt.

I have had pets my entire life. I have had to help many cross the Rainbow Bridge. It does not make that responsibility any easier. Take comfort from the fact that Barney is no longer hurting. You gave him a quality life while you cared for him. Grieve for him, but don't forget to remember the good stuff. Sincere sympathy for your loss. May you heal and give another deserving animal the love you shared with Barney.

24. I am so sorry.

There is nothing harder. We did that in December with our 7 year old standard poodle. He was my best bud. Tumors all through his abdomen.

Last year I lost 4 cats, all had come to me as ferals and were on the older side but not old, an old horse and then my doggie boy. I have never been so happy to see a year change.

What you did was a gift to him. The biggest gift of all. You sacrificed a little more loving time to give him a rest from his pain and discomfort. Sending you peace and comfort knowing that you did it for him, not for you. ❤️. I am so sorry.

It's rough. Very rough. I felt like I was betraying him, but his cancer was so bad that his entire left side was one big open sore.

You gave your fur-baby a good life. The good memories will stay with you.

26. You're never prepared for the loss

Some people don't understand our four-legged family members are just as important and valued as our two-legged humans. The loss is felt just as strong and in fact unique because that companion loved you unconditionally and was always there for you. You're only left with an empty home and a cat shaped hole in your heart.

30. My sincerest condolences, calimary

I am a life-long sucker for black-and-white kitties, and when my 5-year-old perfect little girl got cancer (five??!), I had to do the right thing (2011), and then a big b&w crazy-guy stray adopted me shortly thereafter and I had to do the right thing by him in 2016.

it’s the worst

Love the story of Barney and Betty huddling together in all that chaos!! THANK YOU for keeping these two kids together!!!

67. I have

A beautiful black and white baby Othello. He's 2.he has huge bright yellow eyes.I appreciate every moment he's with me
Two years ago I lost a few cats,they were all around the same ages..A cat I so adored was named Rustle,a linebacker cat of tabby cream and pale red with eyes of pale minty green. Rustle I could take him anywhere,he was fearless.Vinny was all black as the spaces between stars with luminous Yellow eyes. And my white tubcat Bear.Bear was very very sweet and cuddly. I was soulbonded with one cat,Sparkle a beautiful petite boy with lynx points of dove grey and sweet aqua eyes that would melt me to jello and Sparkle and Rustle were a gay couple.

I cried and cried as each cat went away to wherever the cats roam.

I miss all the cats I've. Ever. known.

32. So Sorry

My sincerest condolences. I think this is the main reason I really didn't want another pet. Our little pup is five, and too often I think about the day that will eventually come when we have to face the same heartache that you are going through. I get really attached to my dogs, and I had NO desire to start a new relationship, but when my wife and I made a trip around Europe five years ago, I should have known she was going to go out and get a cute little fur ball to walk when we got home, just as we saw all the ladies doing around Europe.
The memories we keep are the price for the loss. Sincerest condolences.

But here is what I have found. When one of our pets leaves us, they take a small part of our hearts with them. But, as time goes by, we come to realize that they left a part of theirs in place of the part they took. It takes time, but eventually you will be able to remember the good times.

Hugs to you calimary and I'm telling our Gizmo, Snitch, and Pita to keep an eye out for him at the Bridge and show him around.

The loss of a pet is a loss of a family member, for sure. And the only real downside of having them is that their life expectancy is relative short. But they are surely more than worth it -- they add so much.

59. Cats have a great ability to hide their illnesses until they are sometimes beyond treatment. It's

a trait they use in the wild to keep them safe from predators. Bless you for giving Barney a full and happy life. Their lives should be so much longer.

62. I'm so sorry for the loss of your sweet Barney.

It always hurts.

The only thing that consoles me when I lose one is knowing that it would have been worse for them if they'd outlived me rather than vice versa.
