Goodbye for Now, Georgie

                    (Taken last Christmas morning)

My precious Georgie went to Heaven last Monday.  There was no long illness, but Sunday night I could tell he wasn't feeling well.  He didn't eat all of his dinner, which was unusual for him.  I got up several times in the night to check on him, and he was hiding under a chair, which was also unusual for him.  On Monday morning, right before we took him to the vet, his urine had blood in it.  The vet said it was Sudden Onset Acute Kidney Failure and there was nothing that could be done.  So we held him and told him we would love him forever, and to not be scared because he was going to a wonderful place where he would be with his sister Betsy (she passed away in 2011).  I kissed his cheek and he kissed mine, just like he always did.  His soul passed on while we were both holding him. 

Georgie and Betsy in happier times.  They were litter mates from a feral mother, Ms. Violet, and they loved each other with all their hearts.  I hope someday we'll all be together again. 


  1. Oh Victoria, no. I'm SO sorry to read this about your sweet Georgie. So sad.
    My Sunny died the same way.
    Kidney failure takes so many dear cats.
    It was a blessing that he didn't suffer for a long time, and that he went with you cradling him.
    But, there is a hole in your home where he used to be, and that is so very hard to bear, I know.
    I think his presence will be felt for a while, as he makes sure you'll be alright, before he moves on.
    And, I do believe our dear animals sometimes return to us.
    You'll know when he does, one day.
    Warm hugs xx

  8. Hi Victoria,
    Thank you for your thoughtfulness about the sudden loss of my kitty, Brody. I think I'm still in shock.

    I was so sorry to hear you had recently lost Georgie. I know how it could feel like there is an empty spot in your heart but I hope it is filled with wonderful memories of him.
    Take good care.
