Two nights ago Meowmy had a dream about this boy. This is my brofur, Kinji.❤ He crossed the rainbow bridge 🌈 four weeks ago today. The time was right for him to leave us in many ways.
Kinji came to us an adult, near death from severe anemia due to a flea 🦟 infestation. He arrived at the vet's in a cat carrier with his housemate, Blue, who had died on the way. 🌈 💙 Kinji, half comatose, may have been aware that Blue passed away next to him.The vets and vet staff saved Kinji. (See last pic, removing fleas in water.)
Kinji is a purebred Japanese bobtail.(Bobtails have a little curl of a tail while a Manx has no tail at all!). Blue is a purebred Abyssinian. There was a third cat in the home, a purebred Mainecoon, who also survived. The Mainecoon was rehomed, and Meowmy took care of Kinji. 💞
Strangely enough, a home with three expensive purebred cats was not aware of the severity of the flea problem.
FLEAS KILL CATS and small dogs.🦟 Not every cat or dog is allergic to flea bites, therefore you may not know your furbaby is affected. Since fleas eat the host's blood, an animal can become severely anemic if not treated.
Kinji survived his ordeal. His weight increased from 6 pounds to over 10 pounds . He loved to eat, sit in the sun ☀️ or sit over the floor heater vent. The warm air would ripple his pure white coat. 🔥
He loved to snuggle BEHIND your lower back when you were working at a desk, like a little comforting heating pad. He had the most beautiful blue eyes, and the sweetest face. 💙💙 He would look up at you with a little head tilt to the right, as if to say, "Now what, Mom?"
When a good eater goes off his food, it must be taken seriously. At the age of 15, Kinji was diagnosed with a gastric tumor and disseminated abdominal carcinoma (carcinomatosis). 😿 With supportive care, he lived well for another month. But by Sunday January 31, 2021, it was time to let him go.🌈
February was a very busy month for Meowmy. She says she couldn't stop and grieve properly. Therefore, the dream. Now is the time to remember this beautiful soul ❤ and all the joy he brought us. Forever in our hearts! 💞
Until I see you again my hansome brofur...
Love, Brownie 🖤
