This man cat still got fight

I woke up this morning all ready to send mu shue to Kayla. I had said my goodbyes last night and made my peace with what would take place. I walk up to the most bootfal purring I ever heard cuddled with me was mu shue. I said Mu shue I love you so much Today I set you free to be with your sole mate. I got up expecting him to just lay there he followed me to the eating room and begged for food. How could I say No? I feed him a whole can of food that he gladly gobbled down and begged for seconds. his I dont feel good face gone. Replaced by a bight eyed fluffy tailed mu shue. He then started to gromm him self I not seen him do this in a few weeks. Next he then went over and found a broken hair eleastic and started to play with it. I keeped going back and fouth on what to do. I said to him Mu shue your going to see Kayla and he bit me. I was sure I was loseing my mind. I then desied to go to the vet and do it as i did not want him to suffer. he proced to bit the vet as she tryed to get the cathere in him. She looked at me and said for a dyeing cat he sure has alot of spunk. She left me alone to say my good bye. He climbed out of my arms and started knocking off the trash can lid and rolling all over the floor. He just looked good. Bettter then I seen him in Mouths. His eye stoped leaking completly today and there open and he just wants to be around me. I know the time is comming but another cat owner told me if you have any dount don't do it. I had dought. Mu shue had dought He came home was happy to be home ate a hole half of can of food currled up on his pong chair like nothign had happened. I am sorry I such a wimp but How could I not get those last few good days with him. I gave him 12 years How could i not give him a few more days????

You did good! As Buddhists we do not believe in sending anybody to the bridge in the first place (but our staff said they might make exceptions if there is truly NO HOPE and extreme pain) but Mu Shue did not want to go! And we are so proud of you that you allowed him to stay! Cherish whatever time you have left with him and let HIM decide when it is time to leave!
Mu Shue - we will PURR for you and purr for you and purr for you that you get better and better and maybe your time at the bridge is far far away!
Laura you did good! Mu Shue will know when and if it is time for him and imagine if you would have sent him to the bridge yesterday - it might have been too early for him!
We think this is a good example of how important it is sometimes to try and let US decide when it is time to go and let us do it on our own...

I think Mu Shue was making his wishes known! I suspect he has some other things he still needs to do!

Wow! It sounds like Mu Shue is not ready to go to the bridge yet and he has more plans. Our purrayers are still with you.

What a courageous fight! I guess he's working really hard on not leaving you, mama Laura. It's got to be the big bond of love between you! We will keep on purring for all of you.

Marilynn said...

Magnificent! He's obviously not ready to leave, so there's no sense forcing it.

Yayyyyy, Mu shue! We're all so glad you're happier today! We love you, and we know MomLaura and the rest of your family does, too.

Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs...

I'm so glad that MuShue has perked back up and that you brought him back home. He's a trooper with all he's been through. Good thoughts to you and your new babies too. T.

If the time comes, you will know it. It wasn't his time, so enjoy your sweet friend a little longer.

I know none of us wanted to say goodbye, least of all you! It sounds like he's had a rebound of sorts. I hope it lasts for a while!

Whooo-Hoooo, Mu Shue! Way to go, kittie.

It is clear Mu Shue was not ready to go.

Karen Jo said...

Wow! I was just at Lilly Lu's blog commiserating with her about losing Mu Shue and now I find out that he has rallied. Way to go, Mu Shue!

I did the same thing with my Kali. The vet told me that if I had doubts then it wasn't time. Soon after that she stopped eating and only slept. I then knew it was time.

That's it Mu Shue old man, you let 'em all know how it all should be. Chemo is a big rollercoaster ride for cats and their humans. Mom Laura, you are doing right by the king.

More strength and days to you all xx
