For those of you who haven’t heard yet. . .
Ric and I lost our baby boy today!! Jesse, our youngest kitty, passed away this afternoon. For those who know me well, know that Jesse was my little baby. He and I just had this bond. He followed me around the house anywhere I went, he sat on the sink every morning when I brushed my teeth, I used to hold him like a baby in the evenings and rock him to sleep and so much more. We had him for over eight years. He was given to me as a b-day gift from our friend Eddie in September of 2001.
When we got home from Virginia (we were out there for Christmas), the minute I walked in the house I looked at him and could just tell that something was wrong. He looked like a skeleton. We weighed him and he lost nearly 9 pounds just in a few days. He was at the vet’s office Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. While I was doing a photo shoot this afternoon, Ric took him to the animal ER because he threw up and when he called, they said it was something we should be worried about. Ric left him at the hospital, so that they could monitor him overnight. On the way home from Collinsville to Belleville, Ric got the call that he had passed.
Of course, I’m taking this REALLY hard.
This surely is NOT the way that I wanted to start out the new year!!
RIP Baby Boy.. ..You’ll always hold a special place in my heart.
I miss you “bugger nose.”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
