Fly free, Sweet Moosey

Heaven is a little brighter, but we are completely heartbroken.

On Thursday morning, our sweet, gentle and handsome Moosey left us for the Rainbow Bridge.

The complications of so many serious ailments finally caught up with our blue-eyed wondercat, and after a few not-so-good days, and a very rough night, we took him to our wonderful vet first thing Thursday morning. A thorough examination revealed that Moosey was very sick, and that the prognosis for his recovery was poor. Tracey and I knew in our hearts that it would not be fair to subject our 15 year-old little guy to yet more treatments, medicines, or discomfort. So, with both of us petting and kissing him, and whispering “we love you” in his ears, Moosey flew peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge.

We know we made the right decision, but that does not lessen the incredible pain and utter sadness we feel. We were blessed to have Moosey with us for 7 ½ years, and to know him at PAWS prior to that. We can’t remember life without him, and his passing has cast a long, dark shadow.


Sweet Moosey, we will never, ever forget you. Our hearts will ache, but also be warmed, whenever we remember the things that made you so awesome. Like the way you loved snuggling with your mom and dad, and how you would insist on lying between us on the couch. And how you would gently tap us with your paw to make a connection (or to tell us it was time to eat). And that your favorite snack was lettuce!
 
 
You had such a calm and gentle nature, and were so tolerant about everything, including taking your meds, getting in the cat carrier, and even going to the vet. We will never forget your beautiful blue eyes, or your striped lemur tail. Or how you were such a diligent helper/snoopervisor with anything and everything. Or how you could be so talkative – what a sweet meow you had!

Moosey enjoying HIS Christmas tree, earlier this week
You loved YOUR Christmas tree, window whiffies, belly rubs, and drinking water directly from the faucet. You also decided late in life that you actually enjoyed being brushed. And we love that you slept with us every night, but only after you went on patrol around the house.


We will love and miss you always, dearest Moosey, and we long for the day we see you again. Wait for us, okay?

Dad and Mom, and Zoe and Gracie, too

The Human and I are leaky reading about the departure of your wonderful Moosey. The Human says he was the luckiest boy in the world to have found pawrents like YOU and *I* say you were the luckiest pawrents in the world to have found MOOSEY. It is one of those very rare times when I believe we are both right. We'll look for a new star in the sky tonight.
We think Zoe and Gracie have a big snuggling job ahead of them. XOXOXOXOX

John Bellen said...

Poor Moosey had the life with you that every cat dreams of. His colouring was similar to my Josie's, white with tabby patches and a striped tail. And he was with you as long as my Tungsten was with me. I know the pain you're feeling, and yet each person's is his or her own when they lose someone. God bless you, and Godspeed, Moosey.

St Francis said, "Come little one, there is nothing more I can do for you here, don't be afraid"......

and St Francis gently picked up Moosey and carried him into the kingdom of heaven; and when the little cat looked around, he realized everything St Francis told him on his journey was true....heaven was beautiful beyond what mere words could express ♥

Moosey saw there was no pain, suffering, fear, sickness, hunger, thirst or sorrow, until he looked down and saw the family and friends he had left behind.

and for a very brief moment, the little cat too, was filled with sorrow.

but then St Francis bestowed Moosey with a set of wings and said, "Use them to return to your family, when their need is the greatest, as nothing can separate your bond of love. Hold each other in your hearts and your memories, until you are reunited again at heaven's door."

and when Moosey tried on his wings, he knew nothing was impossible...... when there is....love

Godspeed your journey to heaven Moosey; we hope there's a garden right outside your door, that has a never ending supply of lettuce

hugs and love to you, your mom, your dad and your sisters from all of us ~~~~

boomer, daisy, tuna...and dude and sauce too ♥♥♥♥♥

What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful boy. I love that he would patrol the house to make sure it was safe before coming to sleep with you at night. They are never with us long enough. Sending you love. xoxo Romeo's family

Our hearts just broke when we saw the news that Moosey had made his trip to the Bridge. We have no doubt he will be there waiting for you all. We add our tears to yours, and send you so much love.

I haven't been keeping up with my email lately and when I finally got to it. I saw the email from Ann Adamus about Moosey, I was so saddened. My heart goes out to you with purrs, hugs and Prayers. He was a special kitty. God Bless.

Love,
Cleopatra and Mom

I didn't see this until just now. So very sorry about your loss. Moosey was so handsome...this is a beautiful tribute.

I'm so, so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to do the right thing for them when we love them so much. Thank you for being the people who rescue and love animals so much, even when it breaks your heart.

I'm really sorry about losing your baby. He sounds really sweet. We lost our 18 year old cat, JoJo in September. I'm still so sad. We got another cat at an animal shelter the next day. I was volunteering at the shelter for a year. I loved working in the cat room.
