poor old Mr. B....
Beautiful Bast giving Life,
Hail Bast, in visible form,
Casting light into the darkness,
I have come before you,
The path is opened,
The earth is at peace.

Lady Bast, accept Your child Brutus into Your presence. Heal him, cosset him, make him glad. Reunite him with his sister Shadow.

Brutus had been dwindling for the last couple of weeks- eating less and less until it was hardly anything at all, moving more slowly and painfully... Every sign pointed to it- he was shutting down. He was leaving us. He'd gotten much more affectionate, cuddling up to me or sitting on my chest, soaking up the last caresses... I'd taken to telling him "it's OK, it'll be all right" as I stroked him, and this seemed to relax him like nothing else.

Yesterday, before I left for work, he gave me a long level look, like he was saying "how much longer?" I knew then, and monsteralice agreed when we talked last night. He was going to start suffering soon...

So this morning we took him in, and held him and prayed to Bast and sang to him and petted him and stroked his ears... and felt his breath stop in a last sigh when the injection took hold. And now he's gone.

Yes, we did the right thing... and yes it still hurts.

::hugs you::

My heart goes out to you. I know how hard it is to lose a friend after so many years together.

What a tough thing to go through... much love to you and your family.

My sincerest condolences to you and monsteralice and the other furry kids who will miss Brutus, too.

It doesn't get any easier over time....

thank you... no, it doesn't get easier...


I am sorry for your loss.

He will be waiting for you.

::HUGS:: I'm so sorry, guys. I had no idea. I would have said something last night if I had known.

Love to you all, and love to Mr. B over the Rainbow Bridge.

thank you. we only made the decision last night after monsteralice got home, so there was no way you could have known...

I'm very sorry for your loss. Loosing such a close friend after so many years is a profoundly painful experience. Take care.

I'm so sorry. This has been a rough year for you & Stacia and pets.

thank you... yes, it has been tough...

i am sorry for your loss.

Raises a glass to Brutus.

I will leave bast offerings tonight for your family.


Mr. Brutus joins a lot of beloved pets. Love to you and monsteralice.

My sincere condolences. I send healing energies your way.

I'm so sorry. Been there, been right there.

I'm sorry to hear that.

*hugs* offered - my thoughts are with you.....

I'm sorry for your loss brother.

Ah love... many hugs to you and monsteralice, and teh kittens and Judy-dog too.

Mr. B was always a favorite of mine, even when he would have nothing to do with me. Im sure Shadow is waiting for him, so they can romp in the afterworld...

All my love...

thank you. i'm sure you're right...

Sorry to hear it, man. It's so hard to let them go. I remember how nice he was to me when I was over your house. I think most cats would cringe or roll their eyes to be called "good", but he was quite the *superlative* cat.

Mercy is such a virtue, and frequently the hardest. Heal soon.

thank you. i will.

Edit: he was actually OK with being called a "good cat", but he was a bit brain-damaged and perhaps had spent a recent lifetime as a dog...

Condolences for your loss; acceptance of your grief; wishes of good memory for you as the years pass by.


I am so, so sorry. {{{{{{hugs}}}}}}

I know my kitties are waiting for him over the Rainbow Bridge
- he sounds as valiant as my Samantha. Bless him, bless you

Re: Hugs to you both -

Thank you.

He actually was kinda valiant- about other cats at least. A bit of a scaredy cat where people were concerned.
