Kona, our 9 year old male Siamese has been battling Chronic Renal Failure the past couple of months. We’ve tried to make him as comfortable as possible but came to the realization his condition was not stabilizing. Steve and I had to make a very difficult decision: it was time to let Kona run free at the Rainbow Bridge. I have never had to make life decisions like this; it’s absolutely heart-wrenching and to be honest: it SUCKS!
I decided to write this very difficult blog before we let him go because I knew there was no way I was going to be able to write the tribute Kona deserves, once we came home.
Kona was one very special kitty…
He had pizazz and personality.
He could make you laugh with his inquisitiveness or as he was zipping around the house, with the kitty zoomies.
He was a love bug who would sit on your lap or by you for hours, just enjoying your company.
He would drool all over you as you stroked his velvety fur.
He terrorized his sister…
and loved on Reid like she was his Mama.
He tolerated Pongo and if he had more time, they probably would have become friends.
Sorry about your cat. Loosing a pet/member of the family sucks!
My heart goes out to you guys!!! You are in my heart and in my thoughts!!!
It made me smile to look at these photos tonight, to see Kona in healthier days and get a sense of your lives together. I am so sorry for the pain of this loss.
That was a very nice tribute Jen. It looks as though you and Steve have some very memories.
I’m so sorry for your loss, Jen. I know you loved Kona very much and that you made each other really happy for a long time. My heart is with you.
Thank you all for your very kind words of comfort and support. It’s been a rough day and a half. I know it’s going to take time for the sadness to mitigate and there will be a lot of ups and downs. I’m so very thankful we had 9 wonderful years with spunky, sometimes punky Kona. His beautiful spirit will always be us and that gives me some sense of peace.
