Rambo the Wonder Cat

Here's my little angel and Rambo the Wonder Cat taken about 6 months ago.

I'm very sad today as Rambo died yesterday aged 18 and a half.

He was a great cat, snuggly and purry and all the good things cats are. Yesterday morning he joined my little angel, hubby and me on our big king size bed for a snuggle while watching ABC kids. Then he went out for a laze in the back garden before meowing for me to open the back door and then the front door so he could laze in the afternoon sun in our front yard. He had arthritis in his back legs and had discovered it was much easier to get his humans to help him than jump the fence himself.

My little angel went to give him a cuddle around 3 and said Mummy he isn't moving he's not giving me a cuddle, he doesn't move when I call him. Of course being Easter our normal vet was closed and we ended up taking him to a 24 hour clinic nearby where they didn't know us or him.

They offered to give him CPR, but as I had been preparing myself for a while that he wasn't going to last forever, I declined. We said our last goodbyes and came home for a good cry.

It's hard explaining to kids about the death of a loved one. I don't want to do it again anytime soon.

Bye Rambo love you mate xxxx
