June 9, 2009 - September 25, 2010

Our beloved Yuu-Chan got his wings in the early hours of this morning. After our last blog post on Thursday morning telling you he was doing well, he started going downhill very fast on Thursday evening. I took him to Dr. C's on Friday morning and she was shocked by the deterioration in his state. He received a transfusion (thank you, Luke, for donating your blood) but he was already too ill for it to help. Dr. C, who loved him almost as much as we did, was with him at 2am and made the decision to help him to the Bridge. In her words "He was such a wonderful cat that I could not bear to see him suffer as he was beginning to suffer." Thank you, Dr. C for your kindness, care and compassion. And thank you, Yuu-Chan for gracing our lives with your gentle soul this past year.

We are all heart-broken today. We will put together a post celebrating Yuu-Chan's short but wonderful life tomorrow. Thank you all for your kindness and support during his illness.

#1, Tommy, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan


  1. Mom and I are devastated for you. Dear sweet Yuu-Chan, we will miss your sweet face on the blog. What a beautiful cat you were. We pray you are well and running free now, meeting Ikkyu and Sen-Chan, and all playing together.
