Finn, you were the most fantastic cat I could ever hope for. I shall miss those big, blue eyes and your early morning wakeup calls. To have you taken from us so suddenly just doesn't seem fair but I didn't want to see you suffer. The house just seems so empty now.
Finnigan had to be put asleep tonight after we found out he had a blood clot which had lodged in his lower extremities. He quite suddenly lost the use of his back legs and cried constantly. It was obvious he was in a lot of pain. We were unable to reach our own vet so we drove him into the emergency animal hospital in Ottawa where they made the diagnosis. His lower circulation had been cut off, his body temperature had dropped and his legs were already starting to atrophy.
It all happened so quickly and we had no other choice. I still can't believe he's gone.
