The terrible wet (smelly) poo was a sad symptom of the feline leukaemia that Hercule had, he has been unwell for a while and was a very old man at nearly 13. I took him to the vet on Thursday afternoon only to be told that he had a huge mass in his abdomen and that there really was no treatment available for him. I brought him home so that we could explain to the children and let them say goodbye. He had lots and lots of cuddles.
While the girls were at school yesterday I fed him a tin of tuna and some chocolate buttons, both favourites that usually upset his tummy. Figured it didn't matter much. Nathaniel and I took him to the vet and he came out of his box and sat on the table for a cuddle and died while I held him and whispered in his ear. Very sad indeed but less so than having to watch him become more and more ill.
We will miss him very much. His brother and sister (Vincent and Josephine) have had a look for him but don't seem overly bothered. Such is feline love!
Now, lets get to blog business; I received this award from the lovely Twiggy she passed it on to five people but being a fairly new blogger I don't have that many favourites to pass it on to. Swirly said she didn't want one as she already has this one, fine says I! Have to wait for a different one to pass to her (hint, hint)!
So I would like to give this award to;
Thanks for all the rantings and support and inspiration ladies!!
