RIP Mithras

Having difficulty finding a pix of Mithras right now as I'm in the midst of moving all my files to several external drives. This was the only one I could easily find.

But...Mithras AKA Baby passed away today. We went to the doctor Thursday, as her toxoplasmosis had flared up again. She was doing great on Friday and then deteriorated from yesterday afternoon through overnight. Took her to an emergency vet, as no furbaby deserves to suffer. I'll discuss it with her doctor tomorrow, but I think the toxo just took over.

Mithras was named as such because she 'saved' me one day from Joyce. Joyce was going on and on about who knows what, and here comes a little kitten and Joyce says "Oh it wants to join my outdoor group." "Like hell it will." And I picked her up and brought her home. Since Joyce believes she's the ONLY Christian on North Hill, I felt it appropriate to name the kitten Mithras. Mithras was basically Jesus before Jesus. Side note, a week later a hood kid found another long haired green eyed kitten and Eddie took her in, calling her Maybe. Maybe and Baby HAD to have been sisters because of their looks and their personalities. Both very very sweet and loving and both demanded to be carried places.

Mithras was very good natured and never got in tiffs with anyone. She loved nothing more than to be petted and loved on. That's how she passed.

Oh, shit…you know I just lost my cat Stacey not long ago—and I'm still not over it.

So sorry for your loss.

Yes, I remember you recently lost Stacey. Furbaby losses are always so difficult, I feel. So much unconditional love is compacted in such small packages and they depend on us to make the right decisions for them. Even when we KNOW it's 'time', it doesn't stop the hurt. The void that is left at home seems to echo at times. Thank you, I know you can empathize.

And this morning Melon goes to the vet cuz I think she's having another dental infection! She had an abscess a couple months ago. None forming now, but she's not eating much.

I'm sorry to hear about Mithras. I had a cat for 19 years and I'm being re-taught by Luna how precious they are.

The oldest I had was 18 when he passed. They are very precious. Thank you for your condolences.
