Cat Memorial: Oreo from Winchester

by Kelli Lindquist
(Winchester, VA)

Oreo was born on April 22, 2010. He passed away June 4, 2011. I'm not a cat freak but I loved Oreo so much. I hated being away from him. When I'd get into the driveway of my home, I'd get excited to know he was waiting for me.

Oreo was both mine and my boyfriend's cat but me and him shared the closest relationship. When I was without a car and my boyfriend worked all day me and him would sit on the couch and I'd talk to him (haha) like he was listening.

He was so crazy and I loved him for that. That is what made him so unique. This is totally weird but he would love sucking on my ear. It was odd but it was kinda like how other people pet their cat and they purr. He would purr from that. He would run around the house acting crazy and he'd jump around and be all happy.

Oreo was long haired and white and black. He loved straws and pacifiers... and especially baby bottle nipples, and that is what got him in trouble. Oreo had gotten an intestinal obstruction. He was very sick and I wish I had known this in the first place. I just thought he had gotten lazy and it would pass. When I took him to the vet the surgery would have been 1500 dollars, and that is a lot for a new starting out family.

I let them go ahead and give him x-rays and blood work and was still iffy on the surgery. The vet had closed at 5 so we had to pick him up and bring him back the next morning. When we had gotten home, Oreo started having seizures. He was so out of it he could barely breathe.

That night, we put him to sleep. One of the worst feelings I've ever felt. I know he's in a better place and I feel so selfish because I want him here with me. It was OK for me to be like OK let's take him to the emergency hospital and put him to sleep. Once he's actually not here anymore... kills me.

If only vets weren't so much or at least let you make payments. Now my baby's gone and there's not much to do but sit here and be sad. I'm hoping he's still here in spirit... I look around and look for him and he's not there :''( I miss you and love you Oreo.

Financial and other help

I too am very sorry for your loss. Please check into Care Credit. The Vet should have told you about this payment program. This plan saved the lives of 5 of our cats. We still have them. I am actually still making the NO INTEREST payments on the last one who was shot by a neighbor. Also if you have Male cats make sure their food has 2.5 ash content or lower-ash causes some of the blockages. We had three in for that and one almost died. We love all of our animals and we no longer let the cats outside... we lost many out there. I ask everybody to please do your research and protect all of your loved ones.

I'm very sorry to hear about Oreo's passing, Kelli. I'd like to ask you to give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you feel. It's OK to want him there with you, and it's OK to feel the sadness of the loss.
