At 12:40pm, Nox passed very peacefully at home, surrounded by his family. We had the great fortune to find a vet who does in-home visits on Christmas, and she gently aided us in getting through the process. He was warm, pillowed by our arms, and he went easily and with many kisses.

After Friday's visit to the vet, Nox declined rather quickly. By yesterday evening, his breathing was shallow and he'd begun having problems walking. We knew it was time, and he was ready. We called the vet, put an air mattress by the Christmas tree, and he spent his last night comfortably resting with us in the glow of soft lights, which he loved.

Today, we kissed him and told him how much joy he brought us, and how he was the most beautiful cat we've ever laid eyes on. I loved him since the first moment I saw him.

I will probably post tomorrow or the day after-- a list of things I loved about him that I do not want to forget. It will doubtless be a very long list. He was my little fuzzy son, that once-in-a-lifetime special cat who just becomes part of you. My days will be very quiet now.

I am sad that you have had to say goodbye to your special cat. Tis truly hard when it is their time to leave us.

Yes, type up your memories of him to refer back to. Looking at it will be hard at first, but later you will smile.

I miss my special boy.

~hugs~

I remember when I visited your place the day before your wedding, Nox was the only cat who was friendly and let me pet him. He really was a cool cat.

I am so fucking sorry for your loss.

This year has been a giant dumpster fire.
But you are very very loved, C. Please remember depression lies. It DOES get better.

No matter how long we get, it's never, ever long enough. There is (some small) comfort in knowing you did what you could, what you needed to do, and were there with him.

Sending you much love, sympathy, and understanding.

I'm so sorry. It is so unfair. I loved his kisses and how he said HELLO and played fetch with those squishy pompom things. Lots of love to you and J.
