Cat Memorial: Louis from Boise
(Boise, Idaho, USA)
Louis was born sometime in August of 2011 behind his daddy's office. When he and his siblings were about 10 weeks old we trapped them using humane traps and brought them to their forever home.
Louis was this first kitten we brought home. He was very scared at first but when we brought his sisters Harmony and Tiger home they had a joyful reunion.
Before long our scared little boy became quite the little snuggler. He never let his daddy out of his sight.
He was growing up so fast and was quickly becoming a very handsome boy. He and his sisters played all day and all night.
They were the best of friends. Louis was so happy in his house.
Then, on 12/3/11 my wife and I brought him back in to the kitty doctor on a followup appointment regarding some breathing trouble he was having. We found out that our little boy had an enlarged heart and was in congestive heart failure.
The doctors did their best to help him and sent us home with some medicine for him. The doctor advised us that he would have at most 12 months to live.
Much to our dismay little Louis took a turn for the worse the following day and we had to take him to the vet that evening to have him put to sleep. Mommy and Daddy miss you buddy and we will meet you at the bridge.
