goodbye buddha

I talked to my mom this afternoon and she told me they had to put one of the cats down today. She found him this morning with a very sudden, very serious condition and they chose to not prolong his pain and suffering.

He had a hard life from the start. When I was living in Brooklyn, and had just gotten my dog Milo, we were on a walk and Milo kept pulling me toward this chainlink fence, so I went over to see what he was so captivated by. It was a tiny grey 6 week old kitten with an upper respiratory infection, and eyes crusted shut. Laying there on the sidewalk all alone. I knew that if I just walked away he would surely die. And luck would have it, I was going to visit my parents upstate that day. So I went home, found a box, and packed the tiny sick kitten up for a ride.

My mother, father, and sister took him in and nursed him back to health.

He had a very happy six years with my family. We're going to miss him.


  1. Awww... my heart goes out to that little cat! My best to you and your fam!

  2. oh, so sad. i'm sorry for you, at least little buddha had a good life and you rescued him in the first place. it is so sad to lose a pet.

  3. That's a lovely story! Very cute cat, hope he has a nice time in cat heaven :)

  4. I'm so sorry to hear sounds like he will be missed dearly by all of you (especially Milo!). He was so lucky to have you and your family in his life. I'm thinking about you guys. <3


leave us a note, we love to hear from you!
