Our Andy





Our baby is at peace now.

His fight with FIV and renal failure was too much for him to bear.

I had a really good conversation for about 4 hours with my pooky bear on Friday night and I honestly think he was ready, he had this look that was so calm and so wise it tore me up .

The others are very sad today because they know that he is gone .

Gracie has been looking for him off and on, the others are all in a kitten pile on the beds, very quiet.

His father and I will miss him for the rest of our lives.


Nite Nite Baby.


We love you.


Mommy , Daddy, Munchkin, Loki, Xena, Boschka and Gracie Marie.

We are so, so sorry for Andy's passing and wish him godspeed.

Even though we don't know you, our mom's eyes are leaking because she had to let her Annie go last February and she still grieves. It's hard....Our mom read somewhere once that all the holes in our hearts are to the let the Light shine through.

Heard about Andy on Space Paws. Our fur family all bow our heads and offer our condolences. We know first-hand where you are, as we lost our Ziggy to FIV in 2009 and our Leopold (who looks a lot like your Andy) is living with it now. And we made them the same promise...when the time comes, they did not and will not suffer.

Hugs and skritches from us and the horde,
