Farewell, Scooby

On Sunday, April 1, Scooby of Little Cat Feet suddenly ran off to the Rainbow Bridge.  He had been completely normal earlier in the day and had no health problems.  While his Mom was carrying her laundry basket, Scooby suddenly ran into the wall next to her.  She scooped him up in her arms and he had some kind of seizure, then he was gone.  She held him for a long time, unable to believe that he could pass away so quickly.  His litter mate, Shaggy was nearby and came to see what was the matter.  His Mom feels really bad and shocked by this.  Scooby wanted out to play in the grass in the morning, but she said no and now regrets it.  She shouldn't beat herself up over this.  Scooby is now running and playing in the best grass that there ever was.  I think that Scooby felt something inside of him go terribly wrong and he ran to his Mom, who always gave him love and protection.

I have been reading Little Cat Feet since I first discovered cat blogs and this really makes me sad.  You can find Scooby's happy limerick here.  I am really going to miss him.

                                                      Suddenly Scooby started feeling bad.
                                                      He ran to his Mom, so he wouldn't be sad.
                                                            He passed from her arms,
                                                            Where he felt safe from harm,
                                                      To the Bridge where he's running and playing like mad.

Oh Karen Jo, thank you!
My beloved Scooby is indeed in the best, most lushest grass ever to be imagined and I know I will see him again!
You are correct in what you've said. The vet thinks he had an aneurism or embolism of some kind that caused him a moment of panic and disorientation making him bolt as he did. He said he most likely was in shock immediately and left me so fast that he felt little if any pain.
That is a comfort, and I am blessed to have been with him in his final moments. Thank you!
