Max 4/09-11/10

It has been a sad an lonely weekend. Our little guy Max had to be put to rest. I found out he had feline leukemia. I am not sure this is what took us to the vet on Friday night. Yet the x-ray showed that some type of a mass was cutting off his air passage and lung capacity, so he was in a bit of respiratory distress.
I think he knew something was happening all day, because he remained very close to me. It was a hard decision, but one that I know was the right one.

He was a good little guy. Quite timid, but learned that I was his friend and was tolerant of my advances. He lost his sister a few months back. He let her out the sliding screen door, and she never returned. We live in coyote country, so... the end of the story is fairly clear to us.

Recently Max had stopped playing fetch, or if he did, he sauntered over to the item he was expected to chase. I thought he was just depressed, but now I know... he just didn't have the energy.

He was loved and will be greatly missed.

Robin, again I want to say sorry for your loss. I still miss my Raven after 3 years so I know how hard this is for you.
