Goodbye to Benji (2004-2012)

This morning Benji lost his fight with hemolytic anemia and passed away at home. He was about 8 years old, but had only been with us the past 14 months. It’s amazing how fast they wrap themselves around our hearts.

    😦 So sorry. He sure had a good loving home for his last year plus. Very hard on you but so good for him that he landed in your lap. Did you ever know his history?

      Yes, he came from a friend of Cassie’s who needed to rehome due to a divorce situation. I have kept in contact with them with updates because they remained interested in his welfare.

    So sorry! 😦

    Aww … so sorry! No matter how many critters we have or have had it just never gets easy to lose any of them. We’re still softies inside and that makes us good people for pets to land with whether they realize it or not.

    Sorry to hear it; you gave him a great end to his life though and he gave you his unquestioning love. You have both gained.

    So sad, the poor little guy. 😦 Prehaps he’ll meet up and get along with my Chase, Zebrina and Baby cats.

    Oh Julie! Sorry to hear that! It never gets easy but we help them the best we can. You were lucky though to have met each other. Sad day. 😦
