Maneki left us on 11 Oct 2005 3.20pm

she took a turn for the worse the next day. even with the heat pads and oxygen tank, she couldnt breathe and couldnt get her temperature up.

when we arrived at the hospital, she knew right away, made her tiny squeaking sound and tried to get up to greet us. she couldn't and slumped back down. as i stroked her, all she could do was answer me with a tail wag. it kept wagging as i stroked and spoke to her.

the vet told us it was time to let her go because she was in a lot of pain. the only things keeping her alive was the drip and the oxygen tank. it is with much anguish that we could accept that such a precious creature could not stay with us longer. we were supposed to take her home today! and it hasn't even been a year that we have had the joy of knowing her.

but she shouldnt have to suffer needlessly. goodbye my maneki, i love you so much.

In Memory of Maneki Neko

maneki the cat
loved by her new family
we won't forget you

I'm really sorry to hear your sad news. My thoughts are with you today.

Dear Animal Family,

My love, thought and prayer are with Maneki, and yourself.

I understand your sadness, and i know Maneki wouldn't want you to be upset. When i wrote the last time regarding the passing of my feline and rabbit, i did have a dream that night about Maneki being not too well (i thought it strange). It was inauspicous to mention and today, i return to your blog because of this feeling that i must.

I am sad that Maneki has left but we must be happy that he is leaving for a better rebirth. He knows he is love and i am sure he loves his family a lot too.

With this thought, i hope you will take good care of yourself, be strong and i join you in your grief. I will remember Maneki in my prayers.

I'm so sorry to hear you lost Maneki. I know how devastating it is to lose a cat and words really are inadequate at a time like this. Please take care.

Maneki, may you have a better life over the Rainbow Bridge. God bless you.

I read about maneki's passing 2 days ago but could not write any message cos I was tearing and sniffing, missing her. Plus I forgot my password.

You're in good hands now maneki. Hope my tomcat Angel Busuk meet you at the rainbow bridge.

I miss you...god bless you.

Farewell Friend, yet not farewell.
where I go, ye too, shall dwell.
I am gone, before your face,
a moments time a little space.
when ye have gone where I have stepped,
ye will wonder, why ye wept.

Farewell Maneki. You have eternal unconditional love from your mum & dad. Now, enjoy your eternal peace. Blackcat.

Maneki had made a very loving connection with you and this bond will continue into a happy reunion again in a future time. Love is never lost.

I am so sorry to hear you loss. I came across this blog a month ago and loved it because we too have a large animal family (3 cats, 3 ferrets, 2 turtles and a dog). I thought this blog was the cutest thing and decided today to see what was happening with the animal family sice I hadn't had a chance to check back since the first time I saw it. The sad story of Maneki has me crying and remembering all the pets I have lost. Only a true animal lover can understand what you are going though and I do. I know no words can help so I will just say again that I am so sorry.
