junior3.jpgThis morning we had to put Junior to sleep. In March shortly after we got him from Lollipop Farm humane society he was diagnosed with feline leukemia and so we knew he was not going to be with us for very long. Generally cats inflected with feline leukemia don’t get older than one year. Junior was 10 months old when he joined our family and so he grew a year and a half. Our little trooper!

Up till a few weeks ago he was doing really well. Then he developed hip problems making it hard to walk, jump, let alone run. The medication made things better for a while but last week he deteriorated very quickly becoming mostly paralyzed, unable to walk, to go to the cat litter. Eating was hard and drink Junior did no more. He held out till this morning so that returned from my trip to California Rachel and I could go together to the vet.

Rachel and I like to think we gave him happiness in his always short life; Junior certainly gave us great joy.

      Junior was an incredibly sweet cat and I’m so happy we got to share our lives with him, even for a little while. He will be sorely missed.

      I’m very glad Junior got to spend his short stay with such wonderful, loving people. I’m sorry you have to feel the pain of letting him go the way he went.
