Au passed away on Sunday evening at 530PM. As you may know, Au was ill a month ago, and then recovered.
But a week ago, he wasn't feeling well again. He was listless and didn't want to eat. The vet gave him some meds, including an appetite spike, but Au just didn't want to eat more than a lick of milk or little bit of fish juice.
As Au has been at death's door several times in his life, we were hopeful. But this time it wasn't to be.
He became weaker and weaker and on Saturday evening something changed in his eyes and body. He wasn't suffering but we knew it wouldn't be long. On Sunday he was still the same. We didn't want him to waken up in the middle of the night and suffer serious pain, so on Sunday evening we went to the vet.
Au fell asleep in my arms. He wasn't afraid or worried. It was very peaceful. We buried him next to Scoop in the garden that they both loved. Target and Guido were there too.
Au was a wonderful cat, who really had a zest for life. And rost chikkun. And ham. It was a privilege to be his survunt.
We're going to be a bit absent this week. See you soon.
