Farewell, Felix Unger Graves III


Dear sweet Felix went to the Bridge on Wednesday, as there was nothing more that could be done for him. He had been having diarrhea problems for about a year and was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. Lately, he began having more problems and his Mom, Jenny, did some research on the medication he had been taking and thought that the new problems might have been side effects of his medication. Unfortunately, he turned out to have FIP and was in the terminal stages of that horrible disease. All his woman cats will miss him terribly and Jenny is heart-broken. I am sure that he will be watching over all of them from the Rainbow Bridge. I feel so sad that all of this had to happen to him in his short life, but I know that he is happy and free from pain now.

                                      Poor little Felix felt so sick.
                                      The vets didn't know why he was so ick.
                                               Now he's running free
                                               At the Bridge with glee,
                                      Nevermore to be in pain or sick.

We feel very sad, especially for Mommy Jenny. Felix is pouncing and having a wonderful time at the bridge now, finally free from sickups.
