- Feb 11, 2011Hi Ruth; the group name is MAX...
While we spent the day today I was speculating with my husband about how such a small animal can have such a very large presence in the house...suddenly I thought (and I am not religious) that it's not the size of the body, we are all souls and the same size...it felt real and true to me, so that's what I believe...I hope to have signs of Max...I miss him so much already...Judi and AM

Subject: [FH] Re: Max is gone
I am so sorry to hear about Max. I know what you mean about buprenex - i had the same experience with Rigsby and would never give it again either. it is good that he was at home with you - that is a blessing. You gave him such a lot of love and care.
You were always such a huge support to me when I was struggling with Rigsby - lots of great advice too - having groups such as this make a massive difference.
I hope Rigsby is waiting for Max to show him the ropes - I had a dream about him catching mice this afternoon, so I think he must be feeling back to his old self wherever he is. he was such a friendly lovely boy - he had friends he met up with in the street! I am sure he will take good care of Max.
Did I tell you that before Rigsby passed I was uncertain about an after life? Well, about half an hour to forty five minutes after he passed I heard him purr, twice. the same rhythmic way he did in life. I asked the specialist if she had ever heard of such a thing and she said no. she couldn't explain it. So there we are, it took a sweet little black and white cat to bring proof of an afterlife to me and I am so grateful to him. A few nights later I was woken by meowing outside the bedroom door. I got up, expecting it to be Vienna and she was asleep downstairs.....there have been other signs too. I hope this brings some comfort to you. please post the group name for Max's candles and I too will light a candle for him

We had arranged for the doctor to come at 4:30, but I told him I would rather he passed on his own...just as the doctor arrived Max passed. The passing was not nice, but the day was special...quiet and peaceful, we had our hands on him the whole time. No meds! But we did give him some buprenex thinking it would quiet him and make him peaceful and sleepy, but it didn't work quiet that way...I wouldn't do that again.
> I will always be frustrated knowing there was something more going on with Max, but in the end I think he had complete system failure as a result of heart disease and all the meds it requires. I know that the loss will be overwhelming when I'm looking for my best friend (other than John) and he's not here, but he's been sick for a while, and that helps me come to grips with it. Right now...we're just kind of dazed. We are having him creamated so we can bring him home to CA and bury him in his yard in his favorite spot...
> Thanks to all of you who helped so much. This has been such a stressful time knowing there was no quality veterinarian here to help, and I relied heavily on the advice of many of you on this blog. I just couldn't have done it without you...you are fabulous people.
> I'm going to light a candle for Max and start a group in his name...join me? to light his wonderful spirit on the road to the rainbow bridge where I am looking forward to seeing him again one day
