Goodbye Peru

We had to make the very difficult decision to end Peru's life yesterday. He'd battled Chronic Renal Failure for six years, and yesterday, he survived a very violent seizure. We didn't want him to ever go through another one. Kevin and I were with him as he went very gently and peacefully out of this life. He was my sweet and constant friend for 20 years. He was my katze, my Peru. I miss him terribly.

  1. Sorry to hear about Peru. I know he was just like a regular family member and will be missed for a very, very, very long time.

  2. I am truly sorry about Peru -- I have a 20 year old cat, "Simba" (Yes, he was named after the movie, The Lion King", when the movie came out in the early 90's), and Yanni is very attached to Simba who sleeps at the foor of her bed. All my passwords are related to Simba - but don't try hacking :-). Anyway, I will be thinking of you guys . . .

  3. I am sorry to read about Peru's passing. I lost my little Yorkshire Terrier before she got to meet my daughter. I believe my little dog prepared me for motherhood. She taught me how to care for and love another creature so deeply. I bet Peru taught you similar lessons. The grief you feel reflects how much you loved your cat. Take Care.

  4. I'm so sorry to read about Peru. I know how much you all loved him. I remember the video of Jingju with Peru and how sweet they were together.
