I want to thank everyone for their purrs and thoughts over the last two days. Tiki got much worse last night and could no long walk more than a step or two. I could tell in his eyes that he was tired. He was tired of fighting and tired of being sick, and just plain tired. I felt that the best, most loving thing I could do for him was to let him rest. So, I took him to the vet this morning, and helped him over the bridge.
He is now resting with my other pets in the garden at my Dad's house. I am heartbroken, of course. But I also know that all of you have helped so much. Thank you for all of the purrs and prayers and thoughts you have sent our way. This community is one of the most wonderful places in the world!
