Time to say good bye πŸ’”


If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

Love you forever, Puddy..My darling boy
August 12, 2023

5.45 am. Mom woke up and saw me not alright. Mom quickly got me in a car. She drove as fast as she could to my animal hospital.

On the way to hospital, I breathed really fast and loud. Mom has never ever heard of this kind of breathing. It was really fast and loud. Mom told me “ Puddy, baby hangs in there, we almost there ! “

We almost reached hospital I got out to pee in the litter tray behind the backseat and I covered it. I always good at that. Do things properly for mom even now it was really hard for me to breathe. I made it to my carrier while mom was driving. 
My pee actually didn't go into a litter tray but all over my hinge leg. Not for long we reached at hospital.

Mom took a carrier ran inside, told the front it was emergency he couldn’t breathe. The front went to get a doctor and nurses. Mom took me in an emergency room. She put me on a hospital bed she told me “ Puddy you will make it. You are in a good hand now. Okay? ‘ 
My throat full with sticky phlegm. Mom took it out for me while everyone get an oxygen ready. They told mom to wait outside, and shut a glass door.

At the front of an emergency room. My mom did not blink. She stared a glass door with tears. She knew...even she didn't want to excepted it, A hard truth..

 ...then every shadow in an emergency room was stopped. No movements. It was 6.14 am. Saturday morning.

Door opened, the doctor gently told mom “ He stopped breathing, We did our best to saved his life. We used oxygen tubes to help him breathing. He is unable to breath by himself.. ‘ Silently my mom cried and told a doctor ‘ Let’s him go … πŸ’” It was really hard for mom but it is a time..

Mom reached me in an emergency room. She hold me and carried my wobbly body out. She gently told me “ Puddy, we are going home, my darling boy. You come home with me my baby boy “ Her tears are pouring it was hard to believe I was gone for real.

My leg was a mess because of my pee and a few crumbs stuck on my fur. I smelled not nice. Mom told me not to worry about it. When we were home, Mom bathed me, dried me, combed my fur, hugged me, kissed me last time.

Mom couldn’t bury me because it’s all concrete. My garden has a shallow ground. And One good reason …deep down in her heart, she always wants me close to her so it’s going to be cremation. Today is Thai king's mother birthday and it is mother day in Thailand. Not allowed funeral. We will do tomorrow. Mom doesn't mind. We have one more night together.

First photo of Puddy when he first came to my life. When I washed his body and dried him to be ready for his next journey. He left me one of his nail on a floor for me to keep. It's in a tiny container with blue lid.  ~ Boom, Puddy's mom

With an age of 14 years old Tuxedo kitty. I do my best, mom do her best, my VET and nurse did their best but it’s just a time for me to go… Sadly I couldn't make to my 15 years old birthday in this September.... I didn't yet use all my nine lives... It is a time my time ... to say goodbye 

Good bye mommy I love you very much

Good bye my friends I love you all
Thanks to be with me till now.
Mom and me are very appreciated all whole heart you gave me.
Lots of love

Puddy boy

Dearest Puddy and Boom, I am heartbroken to read this. We all knew your time was near but it makes it no easier for your family and friends. Your Mommy loved you so much and did everything possible for you, even taking the greatest care after your last breath. You will always be remembered and loved.

Kea said...

I, too, am heartbroken. Your mom did everything humanly possible to keep you with her, Puddy, to help you -- you could not have asked for a better human caretaker for your life. I'm so, so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with your mom through her grief. Peace and Blessings.

We love you Puddy, and we are glad you are with Spitty the Kitty and all the others across the Bridge, free from illness, and getting into all kinds of mischief.

Mr Puddy and Mom you both tried so hard and fought so valiantly. We always admired your strength and determination. Now, we are so sad that things didn't go the way we all hoped they would. Tears flow today. Your unconditional love will always remain within our hearts. We will do our best Mr Puddy to always be here for your Mom. We love you both so very much. We always will.

catladymac said...

We are so sad to read this...but we know you knew and gave so much love ! And what a fight you put up for your Mama. Our beautiful tuxedo girl Sallie Cookie went out much the same way you did in the ER. We hope she will be one of the ones who meets you, but there will be so many friends there it will be a joyous reunion. And we know there will be many signs to let your Mama know you are still keeping watch over her...and once she gets through the first round of pain she will have so many good memories.

We hope she will let us know how she is doing from time to time, so we can all remember you together.

Fr. Tom Fish said...

Puddy, we can't begin to tell you how much you have meant to us all these years. We have run out of tears. We will miss you so much! Only cat I know who could manage to make us laugh, make us proud to know you, and make us happy. Sending lots of love to the Bridge where you're now free from pain, and warm hugs to your mom whose life you brightened day after day, along with the rest of us. We have already begun to look back on all of your adventures. Miss you bunches and bunches, sweet boy.
Tom, Bridget, Penny and mom Julie xoxoxoxoxoxo

Oh Puddy my sweetheart and friend I am so sorry you had to leave us so soon. We have been friends for so many years I couldn't imagine this day. I know her heart has broken but your mum will be ok. We will all look after her for you I promise you.

Mark's Mews (Marley, Lori, Loki, and Binq) said...

TBT: Puddy's Mom - The Mews miss Puddy, but I don't think we said enough about about how much I will miss him too. It's not like you feel about his passing over the Bridge, but it is much. I've lost some cats over the years and it is never easy.

I had general gave-awayed cats as rescues around most of my life. They came and went. I liked them. But the first cat I ever chose myself was in 1992 and I brought him (Skeeter) and a sister(LC) in 1993. They loved each other. And I loved them more than the previous ones.

They were origin of my blog. Skeeter went OTB in 2008 and LC followed in 13 months later. I was devastated. I adored both. I lost Iza at 12 from a cancer, I adored her too.

I'm saying this to express a sense of similiar loss. I know the sadness you feel. I dripped tears on the keyboard reading about Puddy's last day. It seldom ends easily.

When Skeeter died at the Vet euthanized from kidney failure, it took me nearly an hour to drive 3 miles home. I had to keep pulling over in the car to cry and wipe tears from my eyes. Same with Iza many years later.

There are tears streaming down on the keyboard here (all over again) for your loss of Puddy. I feel the loss too. He was a special cat! I loved every post. I loved his happy outlook on life. I loved that he lived in a place I didn't know much about. I loved everything about him.

I wish you comfort , though I know that will be hard for a long time. You are in my thoughts...

Fur Everywhere said...

I am so sorry. Remember that you and your mom will always be connected because love is eternal. I believe you will be together again in the future. Sending lots of love, hugs, and purrs. <3

Megan said...

Goodbye Mr Puddy. I'm thousands of kilometres away and my eyes are leaking. I'm so so sad to see you go.

Thank you for all the fun, educational, fascinating and helpful blog posts over the years. It's been a hoot. You have been such an insightful and caring chap and made a huge difference not only to your mom's life but to the lives of all your readers.

I will miss you very very much.

Big hug for the family!

CATachresis said...

Mr Poot , mum can hardly type for crying. She sends big hugs to your mom and understands how your mom is upset. You, my buddy, are free now and running with all those that have gone before. Just between you and me, i would ask that you keep a space for me on a comfy beddie near yours! I’ve been feeling a bit tired lately. But that’s between you and me, ok?

You are a special pal, Buddy, and I miss you so much, already. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

The J-Cats said...

Reading this with leaking eyes. Fly free, Mr. Puddy. We didn't know you but We can tell what a good boy you were, and how loved.
Rest now, young and healthy again forever, safe in the paw of the Great Cat in the Sky.
Purrs of condolence to your Mom.

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

Puddy, I don't even have the words that convey enough about JUST HOW SAD I AM and how bad I feel for your Mom. Your Mom tried soooooooo hard!! I know you know she did and YOU tried so hard too Puddy! There is NO OTHER (and I don't think WILL EVER BE ANOTHER) kitty who made me laugh so hard in the other Tuxie kitty is as handsome as you. You were (and will ALWAYS BE) the ultimate mancat. Always so manly but a baby with your Mom. You will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart. I can't thank you and Mom enough for all of the laughs and even left this world making us laugh (just for a little bit) but then my tears started flowing. I prayed so hard that you would pull through just one more time!!! I know Cody met you at the Bridge wanting to finally meet you and play with you. Puddy I know you are an Angel now protecting your Mom.....I wish I could fly over and see her and give her a huge hug. Puddy.....there are no words that say enough just how much I will miss you and how I will ALWAYS LOVE YOU as will many, many others. ((((hugs))) to your precious Mama and to you Puddy Angel xoxo

Deb Barnes said...

Mr. Puddy lives deeply in the hearts of those that knew and loved him. He was such a special boy and I will always cherish the smiles, laughs, and joy that he brought into the world with his incredible adventures. My love and prayers to you, too, Mom. You were so good to Puddy and he loved you so very much.

Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang.
