We always talked about what this day would be like..we knew it would be bad..he was such a kind gentle loving cat..living up to his name ...and then some.
Then the famous story of him up the tree and Chris had to risk his life and overcome his fear of heights to save him!
Chris did not like cats when we met but he had no choice but to learn if he wanted a life with me.
But it wasn't that hard with a good cat like Romeo..he is as sad today as I am.
Yesterday I was working and he came out to my shop and sat on the steps..I saw his little face looking in..my customer Nancy stopped to pet him on her way out.
He had a blood clot shutting off the blood to his back legs.
She gave him blood thinners and medication to try to break it up but didn't give us much hope. She said he was in alot of pain so he was sedated and given pain meds..
We went to see him that evening..he was calm and relaxed but the medication was not helping.But The vet said it was worth it to wait till morning. He purred and rubbed against my hand and face ....always the lover.
The reason we got Fido was because Romeo's sister went missing and never came home..Romeo was mourning so bad that we got a kitten. I don't want to get into that cycle again..I'm hoping Carter will take Romeo's place.
Anyway I wrapped Romeo in his leopard blanket him and Fido had slept on ... Chris was getting his spot ready..We decided on the place Romeo like to lay outside our kitchen window under a tree.
