Farewell For Now Sweet Amos


Hi Pals,

Friday, May 22nd was a very sad day for me, M and D too.   My sisfur and her hubby (SIL) had to help their beloved Amos cross the Rainbow Bridge.   Amos had Arthritis for almost 5 years, and the medicine that had once kept him pain free was no longer as effective.  Therefore, Sisfur and SIL helped Amos cross over that Rainbow Bridge and earn his angel wings because they loved him so much and didn't want him to suffer.    

Amos was one of those kitties that everyone loved because he loved attention, was a great lap  sitter, a professional at purring, and the kind of kitty everyone loved.   He and his sisfur (Miss Keiko - who I called MissyHissie) used to stay at our house when they were younger and their humans wanted to take a vacation.    They were good house guests and M & D loved having their grand kitties here.  Even I liked it.   We have fond memories of  M playing string with all three of us gathered around her feet waiting patiently for our turn to play.   We were good at waiting our turn too because we knew she gave each of us the same amount of playtime and rotated several times around.

When they got older and didn't like to ride 45 minutes one way in the car anymore, M & D would drive down there every day to spend time with them, check their food and water bowls, etc., so they could stay in their own home.   

Amos will be sadly missed by all three of us in addition to his humans (my human sisfur and her husband SIL).   We love you Amos and always will.

One day we will meet again when I have to cross that bridge.   In the meantime you and Missy Keiko have fun with all the kitties and woofies up there.

Mom, Lippe Jr, and I have leaky eyes reading about Amos. Mom told me they met him when she visited you, and he was a very sweet kitty. 18 is a nice old kitty age, but it's still sad. Sending healing purrs to help broken hearts. *softpaw*
