Saying Goodbye to Baxter | The Lack of the Greatest Cat


Baxter got here to us from Toronto Animal Companies on a darkish, wet night in November 2012. From the start, he was the most effective cat. Calm, assured and type to all; there’ll by no means be one other. (Learn his coming residence story right here.)

He left us on a darkish, wet afternoon after 3 nights within the ICU ward. I hate to assume that he spent his final nights in a hospital, however we had been attempting to avoid wasting him. And I truthfully thought we might be capable to deliver him residence, even when it was for a short while.

His analysis was acute-on-chronic renal failure. Unbeknownst to us, his proper kidney was small (from genetics or illness) and his left kidney had been selecting up the slack for a while. That labored till someday in all probability on Monday, when the left kidney grew to become blocked. His creatinine ranges shot up and by the point of his admission into ICU on Thursday night, they had been at 1300. (Regular ranges are roughly 80-204).

In the end, he couldn’t be stabilized and his little physique couldn’t get better. We, due to this fact, made the heart-rending determination to softly let him go. He was solely 11 years outdated.
