Thank you all so much. This is the second animal we've lost in a week. First our beloved kitty, Rasta, whom we had since he was born 6 yrs ago....He was the best cat in the world and we miss him terribly. Now Tate. I'm just so upset that he had to die at the vet instead of here at home in my arms. I know i did everything i could and i'm so glad i had the opportunity to love him, and that he didnt die without knowing what a home was like, or love from a family. Even though i'm in so much pain right now, i cant stop crying...i would do it again in a heartbeat. We are going to pick him up in the morning and bring him home for a loving memorial in our backyard.
Dixie, our rhodesian ridgeback rescue, has been so sweet. She's huge but keeps insisting on climbing in my lap to lick away my tears. I know she feels my sadness and is trying to comfort me...and she does.
The support here has been soooo overwhelming in a wonderful way. Pat yourselves on the back mama's, you had a part in tate's life too. You guys sustained me last night as i was fighting to keep him alive and i've read your words of encouragement over and over. Thank you for helping to give this little guy a chance and for loving him with me. I truly do love you all.
