Thank You

January 29, 2006

After fighting to live for almost 40 hours, Fudge eventually passed away today at 12.30am. Alex, Beauty, Dim Sum & I were beside her at her time of passing. She is now in a happy and peaceful place & I am sure our paths will cross in another life.

This kitten totally inspires me. I am in awe of her. Think I have mentioned in my previous posts, Fudge never bows in to her illness, she retains her fighting spirit to the end. We humans, who are supposedly superior, give in to despair readily. The next time, I come across an obstacle in life, I will remember Fudge & her fighting spirit. Face & overcome but never give up.

Thank you to all your posts, your concern, encouragement and your well wishes. On behalf of Fudge, thank you & take care.

Over & out.

    Once master Hofaku called his monks together and said: “This last week my energy has been draining – no cause for worry. It is just that death is near.”

    A monk asked: “You are about to die! What does it mean? We will go on living. And what does that mean?”

    “They are both the way of things,” the master replied.
    “But how can I understand two such different states?”
    Hofaku answered: “When it rains it pours,” and then calmly died.

    Dear Fudge, good bye. It has been wonderful knowing you through “just a blog”, yet your image is now etched deeply in my mind.

    sorry to hear about Fudge’s passing, Cat. i’ve been following the story ever since and only now that i leave my comment – sorry about that! it is certainly true that animals seem to be stronger in face of adversity than us as i had experienced through my grandparents’ dogs. please stay strong for Fudge yes?

    Goodbye Fudge.

    Clever girl. You knew how much it meant to your foster that she could be with you in your last moments. So you held on for the public holiday.

    Thank you Fudge, for the little lessons you’ve taught us. Your tenacity, your love for life, and your uncommon bond with your foster.

    You will be remembered.

    Cat, my condolences. I wish you well in this time of loss. Take care.

    Little Fudge should be running and playing happily over the rainbow bridge.

    There is this saying: To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.

    Dear sweet Fudge will be kept very much alive in the hearts she has touched. She truly will live forever.

    Fudge is a sweetie – we can learn how to handle death graciously by learning from our departed pets. Keep well and hugs to all the other cats.

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    Celeste, that was beautiful. I bawled my eyes out.

    Yes cat_aunty, when I first read this poem, I reacted exactly the same – I cried my eyes out. I think this poem is so beautiful & touching.

    Fudge is there right now.

    You girls are so sweet!

    I am sure one day Fudge & I will be reunited.

    Hugs to you all!

    Hi Cat, just found your blog today and so sorry to hear about Fudge.. am crying as I write this. I have two cats and I dread the day that one of them will die. My oldest baby is plagued with health problems… he had severe FUS and had to be amputated, has chronic ringworm that refuses to go away after 5 years of treatment and a terrible corneal ulcer. I can’t express how sad I am for him. Nothing is worse than seeing him in pain and feeling so helpless. I am glad at least that other people love their cats as much as I do. My relatives make fun of how much I fuss about my cats.. guess you have to also be a cat lover to really understand that their pain is our pain. Thanks for writing this blog. šŸ™‚
