Later in the day on Sunday Getzger became very quiet. Monday he went on one of his favorite car rides, to visit the vet.
The news wasn’t good. Acute renal failure, Getzger was now on ‘final approach’. We brought him home and the big kids came to visit and say their goodbyes. He was loved up, there were tears, and he purred a lot.
We didn’t want him to suffer unnecessarily, so Tuesday morning saw him happily going on his final car ride and visit to the vet. We stayed with him and he purred right up to the end.
To say we miss Mr. Cat would be a massive understatement. He was one of those larger than life characters and he has left a big hole in our lives.
