Polly got his name from our daughter, because he sat on her shoulder like the parrot. He was only three months old and suffered from a severe case of Manx Syndrome. We had developed a 'system' for dealing with his bowel movement problem but in the end, we were unable to do anything for an intestinal blockage. We had to put him down on the 27th. Our boxer Abby had become very attached and protective of him.

I am so sorry. It is heartbreaking to lose any cat, and even more so to lose a kitten in the dawn of life.

Thanks folks, we appreciate the words of kindness. As painful a loss as this was or us, it's been hard on our boxer Abby also. We had three cats and three other dogs when we got her and she bonded immediately with the youngest of the cats. For about six months they were almost inseparable, then the cat got out and disappeared. For 3 weeks Abby went around the house checking "Oliver's" hiding places. This time she knows what happened and has been kind of moping around. The other cats have been a little friendlier to her this week which I think has helped her.

And to think some people believe cats and dogs only care about their next meal and are incapable of love...I can't imagine life without them.

Thank you all again

In my experience, many people think dogs are capable of love, but cats are not. This is, of course, not so. My cats get very upset if they are ignored, even if their physical need are met. As you said, cats also form strong bonds, and not just with their own kind.

Some would say they are spoiled. They're probably right, but I don't care. That's what cats are for!

Poor Abby. Our Michelle greived over Mini Moo for a long time. It's so sad to see one pet grieve over the loss of another. So sorry for your and Abby's loss.
