I adopted Binx and his brother in September & October 2018., after my Tito was killed in the woods.They were dropped off at age 15 and a half at the shelter. They did not have a good life and Binx (all black), was abused. He was diagnosed with CKD a few months after I took him home. For the past year I have lived and spoiled him. He learned to purr and to talk and play. He still doesn’t want to be picked up but climbs in bed with me and sleeps beside my pillow. I have even been able to give him subcutaneous fluids every other day, but often with scratches :)

I have seen this disease take my girl Sabrina and it affected my Trouble (Double Trouble). I knew what was coming. He has shown signs in the past few months. Now I am sitting in an emergency veterinarian waiting room, and have been for two hours. I said I wouldn’t let myself love him, or his brother as I loved my Boo Boo Kitty, Shadow, Sabrina, Trouble and Tito. But I do love him and his brother. I realized that I couldn’t put him through all the medications and stem cell treatment and everything else, that my trusting, gentle ones went through. He doesn’t want to be interfered with and I would only be torturing him. But letting go ....again...after such a short time, is so hard.

He deserved more time, more happiness. He may have a few more months, maybe weeks. It isn’t fair.

No, it isn't fair.  But it's good that for the first time in his life, he could be with someone who would do things to make his life better.

I'm so sorry you and Binx are going through this. How wonderful that you have given Binx and his brother such a wonderful, love-filled life. That was something they did not experience before you came into their life, and now he has known many months of unconditional love and lots of spoiling!

You never know how much longer they can go on - sometimes their will to live and stay with the ones they love is so strong that they exceed doctors' expectations. With my kitty Squeeker (a black beauty, just like your Binx), he was given weeks to live after his cancer diagnosis. He beat that estimate and stayed with me for nearly 3 months before I had to let him fly on off to heaven ahead of me. And my kitty Blackie (also a black beauty) kept going for nearly 2 years after his kidney disease diagnosis. So you never know, Binx might be with you longer than you might think...

I hope you and Binx have many more months together and that they are filled with wonderful memories that you will cherish forever...

Hugs to you and Binx

Thank you for your responses. I am happy that you had 3 more months with your baby. I know that every day is precious. Thank you for your kind words. I lost three of my other fur babies suddenly. I was able to have more time with two of them. Giving them love and happiness is the best gift I could give, until it was time to release them. I know that Binx and his brother will have the best I can give them, until I have to let them go.

Thank you again

Thank you for your kind words. I am happy that you had three more months with your baby. I will give Binx the best that I can until it is time to let him go. I lost three fur babies suddenly and I had two that I could have more time with, and I know the best thing is to enjoy the precious time I have left with Binx.

Thank you again.

I am sorry you are going through this with your kitty, Binx. But, the one thing I can say is that you showed Binx what it means to be loved, and that is so important, to feel that you matter to someone, and yes, I believe that our furbabies have the right to matter. With you, Binx learned what it was to be a cat, and not be afraid. He learned that he can trust you, and even though he doesn't want to be picked up, he still wants to be with you at night. They say it isn't the amount of time spent, but the quality of that time spent together, and you have shown him such a good quality of life. I am glad he got to have you as his mom, no matter the amount of time he has with you. I know you will show him that he is loved, and will spoil him, and that is what he needs.

Thank you. I will keep spoiling him as much as possible. He seems happy and pain free. So that is what matters.

Thank you. I will continue to spoil him. He seems happy and pain free. So that is all that matters.
