Mr. M

Dear Furiends,p=c

Mr. M told me that I was not allow to meow about him, so I haven’t.
Until now.
But you really, really need to know. You see, months ago, when our staff took him to the vet for a respiratory infection, he had a scratch on the neck, and since nothing they’d done to heal the scratch had worked, they asked the vet. (Initially, the staff thought it was caused by me rough housing or him scratching at it.)  Alas, in addition to his kidney issues, respiratory infection and heart issues, the vet said my beloved brofur had skin cancer and with all his medical problems combined, there was nothing he could do to help.
i have spent the last few months spoiling him the best I could. So has the staff. That is why I made him such a special box for Christmas and while I was thrilled how much he 20171224_171850loved it, I was also hurt because he spent so much time in there with his favorite things. Easter Sunday, I was thrilled when he came out and spent hours strolling around the yard with me. We chatted about everything, while enjoying the beautiful day, though he did express concern for the yard and said he hoped this draught would soon be over and he said he’d purr on that.
Today, I woke to rain beating on the roof, so I dashed to congratulate him that his hopes and purrayers had worked. But Mr. M had gone over the rainbow. I’m crying as I type this, but I’m not sure who or what I’m crying for. In some ways, these are tears of happiness because my dear brofur no longer has to deal with the flesh and blood body that was plagued by poor health, but I’m also crying because I will never, ever stroll around the yard with him, again.
Pops was surprised by the rain, so logged into the radar, which showed one teeny, tiny little cloud over our entire state…. I can’t help but think that now that he’s on the other side of that rainbow, Mr. M found a way to water the yard he loved and I’m confident that somehow, we will still find a way to help me when I need him.

    Oh no! I’ve only seen this now :’-(
    Mr. M. will be dearly missed on this side. But I am sure he’s having a good time in rainbow land, bringing them some of his lovely grumpiness and at the same time keep watching over you

        Maybe it was both. And maybe it was Mr. M just being himself. He had a unique personality and his grumpiness was an important part of it. It makes fond memories. ♥♥♥

  2. This hurts our hearts so much. We cannot believe we missed this. It sounds as if Mr. M. will always be watching over you, and you will be together again someday in a much bigger yard. We know you are still grieving and missing Mr. M., and your entire family will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult transition from life with to life without Mr. M.

    1. Thank you dear furiends. We will all miss him and I hate that he had to endure such horrors and indignities. (Please recall that the nasty vet took his temperature in a very rude way – the fool tried that with me, but I assure you he will never be stupid enough to try that, again!) I hold that vet accountable for much of my dear brofur’s problems. Dezi, Raena and Ms. Audra, I hope you’re having success with that dentist, but if not, you can do what I did and bite him/her. >^.^<

    1. Oh meow is me, I never thought to look for the actual rainbow!!! What was I thinking?!? Of course, that teeny-tiny rain storm was serving more than the function of watering the yard and telling me rain was okay to like…. It was the cloud that gave M his rainbow pathway!!! >^.^<

    1. Brian, dear furiend, thank you for your warm words and thoughts. As you probably noticed, the past couple Thursdays, I put together the thankful posts and obviously, I guess I need to do one for tomorrow.
      Until the past few weeks, I hadn’t realized how much he was helping me with the blog. Seems like quite a few will miss his science posts…. His paws are awfully big to fill.

  8. I am so sorry. I loved Mr M from afar – he reminded me a lot of my first cat. I was afraid this was coming after learning about his skin cancer. Still it leaves a hole. Purrseidon, I know you’ll probably miss him more than the rest of us. I’ll miss his posts. Take care of the humans. I’ll be thinking about you.

    1. Oh, Ms. Kiara, on Easter Sunday, when we were having our last stroll, my brufur told me that he wouldn’t have lasted as long as he did without your ‘nip blends. He said your magical blends helped him so much with his arthritic paws. And he seemed to be feeling so much better, that I dared to hope. I’m such a foolish kitty, for wanting to believe that death doesn’t need to be a natural part of life. >^.^<

    I am so sorry to hear about Mr M. I loved his science posts. of course, but also loved HIM (and the rest of your family too !) Based on my experience, may I respectfully suggest that maybe you keep back one of his toys – because one day you may be glad to have one thing of his to touch. I am so sorry for the loss you and his fursibs feel. Purrayers and POTP.

  17. Everyone who knows Mr. M loves him … including a certain cock-a-poo whose love will now forever remain unrequited. We’ll miss him in all the ways he touches our lives: his interests and wisdom, his handsomeness, his relationship with you, Purr. I know that sometimes you got a little liberal with his belongings – but we bet you’d rather have him with you instead of now possessing those things yourself. Loss is a part of life – but that doesn’t make it any easier. We love you, Purr … just like we love Mr M. We wish we could spare you the pain and the loss – but you should know we care and you aren’t alone.

I really can’t have his things around because I was tearing up every time I saw them lying there without him.
