goodbye sweet Bobby

it was the longest 48 hours as we watched if the treatment of last recourse would take. it didn't and Bobby passed away in the hospital yesterday, leaving a gaping hole in our hearts and an empty nook between the man and woman reserved only for him at bedtime.









it was the same day that our malay neighbour called to say that leukemia, ailing for days, has also succumbed.

we prayed for angels to comfort our suffering animals and they did one better.

So very sorry to hear about Bobby. I posted him on the Cat Blogosphere (per Victor Tabbycat's instructions) and will also post a tribute on the Pet Prayer and Praise Blog.
This has been a very sad week, we have seen so many of our beloved pets go to the Bridge. I hope they are all playing together,healthy again.
You and your family are in our prayers. Rest well, Little Bobby.
