Lost Another Friend Today…..

Last night I went into the sewing room to cut some fabric and noticed that Rico didn’t come out for his food. I found him curled up on his bed and he wouldn’t get up. So hubby came in and carried him into our room. He was very weak and couldn’t stand up on his own. We got him to drink a little water but he would not eat anything. This morning hubby went to the store and bought some kitten milk hoping that would help him get some nutrients but he wasn’t interested. While I was in Virginia this afternoon hubby called to let me know that Rico was gone. We don’t know what happened to him, the only thing we can figure out is that he was lonely without his roomie Jade and just gave up. He was almost 14 years old and was hubby’s “Little Man”. He is burried in the back yard right outside our bedroom slider so he will always be close to us. I will really miss my “neckwarmer” this winter. Sleep well little man…..



  1. How very sad. Sometimes they fade so quickly don’t they, and are gone before we can do anything for them. I lost two cats in just a few weeks three years ago, and it’s heartbreaking. Do you have any other cats?

  2. Tears came to my eyes when I read your post…I have three furry friends that I love dearly. My heart feels for your loss.Do something that makes you happy this week.

  3. OH, I am so sorry! This has been a very bad month in blogland and around here for people losing their fur-babies. I really hate to hear this. {{{HUGS}}} to you and hubby on your loss.

  4. I’m sorry to read of your loss. I hope you’re feeling better soon. Of course, an afternoon with Bonnie may have helped a lot.

  5. Oh Beth I’m so sorry, last year the same thing happened to me. First the dog and then my cat. DS swears it was because he missed the dog- they were best buddies :(I love the valances, are those blocks from Cheryl? Your blocks made into a wall hanging are hanging in hubby’s office :)Bonnie’s coming to my guild next spering and I can’t wait 🙂
