Cloud Chaser's Corner - The Rainbow Bridge

Mama here.

Dr. Bill called and the fungus had become secondary to the cancer that had developed in the past month. He showed us the x-rays and the mass had completely filled his sinus cavity and cracked the top of his skull and upper plate of his mouth. He said that we could take him home with heavy pain meds, but Randy-Daddy didn't want him to go through that kind of pain just to keep him with us for a few more days.

We let Dr. Bill keep him, like I did with Samantha, so that they could study him and try to help other kitties who get sick.

Thank you for all of your purrs and good thoughts.


p.s. Thank you so very very much to ML & KC for the Graphic Tribute for Cloudy.

We are very sorry to hear this. You have done the best for Cloud Chaser and for the advancement of research on that matter. It wouldn't have made sense to bring him home, but it is nevertheless so hard to take this decision. Please accept our deepest and gentlest purrs.

We are so very sorry that dear Cloud Chaser had become so ill and had to be helped to the Bridge. Painful as it was, it was the right thing to do and the most difficult but most generous gift to give him, a peaceful, painless passing. We will miss him very much, we were always happy to see him in posts. Now he will be helping other kitties by helping humans learn more.

Rumbly purrs and love to you all

We're so very sorry to hear about Cloud Chaser. Our hearts are aching for you and we hope the poem we read whenever we've lost a beloved kitty will help bring you some small comfort.


The years I've worn you,
warm upon my shoulder,
ended here ...
surprised to find us older.

And there was nothing
left to do today
but hold you close
and help you on your way.

Be still, my little cat.
Be well; be free.
I know that you're somewhere near,
and loving me.
