Buster is now running the great catnip fields of the sky. We believe liver failure from the severe IBS. He has not been himself for about 3 months, was getting daily prednisone to try and control it but last night he had a seizure. He had another one this morning. An x-ray showed he had a pellet in his abdomen from before I adopted him, a megacolon, a lot of fluid in his abdomen, and a shrunken liver. I chose to release him from pain and nausea.

He was the friendliest cat and he always slept pressed up against me - but not for the last 3 months. He loved being petted/stroked and was king of my household. He was not afraid of my overly exuberant APBT like my other cats are. He was a big boy, once weighing about 18 lbs. After a diet, he weighed 12 lbs, a good size for him. Then he started eating more and losing weight, the first sign of trouble.

Run free, Buster Biggs.

Oh, SBU - I am just now seeing this....and my thoughts are with you as you mourn the passing of Buster. I do believe they wait for us somewhere. He's still here with you, though - you know that - in every thought that passes your way. Let them be good thoughts - the greatest tribute one can give is to remember and smile. Peace to you and your animal clan.

So sorry for you. It does leave such an empty hole. "I will not say 'do not cry', for not all tears are an evil."
