September 1, 1995 ~ November 2, 2011
Eddie, my handsome black and white silly boy. He had the softest coat, the prettiest eyes, a black goatee and a black booger on his little pink nose. His meow was hoarse and unique like him. Born on 9/1/1995 as a kitten, Ed was abandoned by his mother, at about 6 weeks old, tiny and afraid he came home in a t-shirt pocket. Eddie had a wonderful life, spoiled and happy, he grew up and became a big boy, my gorgeous gato. In his prime Ed weighed up to 20 lbs. He was big, tall, quirky and lovingly goofy. He thrived on head rubs, lots of kisses and constant love. His exercise consisted of running laps in the hall and chasing crumpled paper and sometimes even his own tail. Eddie was so very special. always a needy guy, but the truth is I needed him more than he needed me. Always loving, sweet and affectionate, Eddie was my buddy, my baby boy, my big black and white lover. His purr box was loud and strong as it would say thank you for loving me. On 3/7/2011, Eddie was diagnosed with kidney failure, from then on he had ups and downs but remained tough. Super Ed was a real trooper. On 11/2/2011, Eddie had been tired and weak, his regular treatment didn’t seem to work for him. That day, I took him to the vet and learned he had developed abdominal cancer and the cancer had traveled to his lungs. The gut wrenching decision was made, cancer was a battle we couldn’t win. It was the saddest decision. Heartbreaking to not have my guy. But even more heartbreaking to have him feel any pain. Ed may of told me he was ready. Eddie spent his last afternoon, basking in the sunshine as he lied by the back door. Eddie loved his home and sniffing at the outdoors, watching the birds and feeling the wind on his face was his favorite pastime. The vet came to our home and at about 6:50 PM, I held, hugged and kissed my beautiful boy as he left for the Rainbow Bridge. My heart will forever ache for my Eddie Ed, but I am thankful for the 16 years we spent together. My best friend and constant companion, you brought me happiness everyday. Rest in Peace, Mama loves you so much.
