Farewell, Sugar


Very early Wednesday morning Sugar went to the Rainbow Bridge on her own. The trauma of her wounds from the wild dog attack in addition to her kidney disease were just too much for her body to handle. She is being sorely missed. There is a story that I meant to include in her other post, but I got too wrapped up in what had happened to her and forgot it. I will tell it now, as it may lighten up the sadness a bit. Last Christmas Sugar decided to bring home a gift for everyone. I don't know exactly what it was, but it was alive and when Sugar let it loose in the house, it provided much entertainment for all the cats. Kellykat finally caught it and put it outside again, still alive, much to the disappointment of all the felines.

                                          To the Rainbow Bridge Sugar had to go
                                          Because her body was damaged so.
                                                         She tiptoed away
                                                         Ere the break of day
                                           For she saw the Bridge was all aglow.

I bawled when I found out about Sugar. I was rooting for her so hard. That story is so funny.

Melvin and I would like to thank you for your prayers and thoughts on Thursday. I honestly feel that he recovered so well with the help of all his friends sending good vibes. We actually ended up finding that his innards grow faster than his outsides. This makes his blood sugar fluctuate and also causes neurological problems. Imagine that! Thankfully all of our vets agreed that he should grow out of it.
Bless you.
