It is with great sadness that I am writing to tell all of our friends of the passing of our sweet boy Sidney- Corkscot Man of La Mancha. He fought a valiant fight against Transitional cell Carcinoma for the past 18 + months. It was hard to continue the blog after I found out how sick he was. The vet had given him about three months to live and I did my best to keep him going for much longer. I following the Facebook page of TCC and gleamed many insightful ideas to help with his care. People are so helpful when you share a common problem. My vet said that he was the longest surviving TCC patient in her practice. Last week, everything started to go downhill. He stopped eating on Tuesday evening and he started having accidents all day long.  There was a great deal of blood in his urine and it just seemed to come out of him when he stood up. He was sleeping continually and seemed to have very shallow breathing. It was tie to go to make a decision. My vet told me that it was time. i did not want my boy to suffer. He had a very peaceful passing. It was difficult to come home without him. The girls are stilling looking for him. They  checkout every bush that he used for pee mail.Until we meet again. Please know that you were loved.

      Thank you for your kind thoughts. I never thought of it the way that you expressed it. It does bring comfort to know that he did want to go.

    Kali and I are soooo sorry for your loss. Our Peeps have gone through it three times and there is never enough words to say ” we are sorry.”

    When Kyla didn’t come home, we were both upset and not understanding what happened to her. We still miss her so much as do our peeps;

    Hope time will help you get through this terrible time in your life.

      I remember when Kyla didn’t come home. It helps to have a sibling in the house to give you comfort. I remember that Sidney was miserable when Drew died. He stopped doing all of the things that had made him happy. The arrival of Shelby made a huge difference in his live. Keep your siblings close, even feathered ones.

      I wore my Stuart shirt the previous week. It is hard to believe that we have lost so many friends over the last few years. Keep on squawking kismet. Send kisses to your furry sisters.

    My heart is hurting for you. Sending prayers and hugs. It is NEVER easy to let a loved one go over the bridge but I do believe that we will all meet again in Gods loving hands.

      Thank you for your kind thoughts. Sidney had few encounters with pets of your persuasion and i don’t think it would have been a good outcome. Hopefully he is living everyone over the Rainbow Bridge.

    So deeply sorry for your loss… they take a big piece of our hearts with them when they go… but without them, our hearts would be so much smaller. Sending big hugs.

      Although it has been 18 months, the loss of Sid is still fresh in our minds. The girls are still going to his pee bush and hoping to get a sniff of him. he was the best. Thank you for your kind thoughts.
