Saying Good-bye

_MG_6999
It’s never, ever easy. Today, we realized, our little Pi Yao’s time had come. He was born in our home when we took in his Mother during the winter. She was a stray, who turned out to have a home with some very questionable people. We let her go back, only to find her at our door the next morning. Pi Yao suffered from Manx syndrome. Born with an cyst and an exposed spinal cord. It was amazing he lived so long, 5 months. He suddenly became very ill and we knew it wasn’t good. An infection in his spinal cord. I received a message from my mother while I was at work this morning, asking if I could call the vet, it was time. As I broke down, asking my boss if I could leave, she said of course. I held little Pi Yao’s paws as he drifted off into his forever sleep. We’re all devastated. Rest in peace, our sweet little baby Pi Yao.

  1. I cried when I read this. Pi Yao is a lucky kitty to have had your love and care for him in his life. And we as humans are lucky to have any cat in our lives. As the saying goes, “Cats leave paw prints on your heart.” Take care and keep loving cats!
