On the 22nd of March, 6:30am, our sweet Setzer became a fur angel.  He was on meds for a hyperthyroid about 5 years and was days away from turning 12. We miss his emerald eyes, soft fur and hearing his chirps. He was a stray in the neighborhood where my son used to live. He knew when to arrive to walk with my son to work and what time to pick him up. One very cold, freezing rain evening, there was scratching at the door that luckily my son heard because when he opened the door, poor kitty was covered with ice on his fur. He was taken in, dried off and fed. A few weeks later, Setzer took a 3 hour trip returning home with my son to live with all of us forever.

Till we meet again.....................................................................................................

I'd read on the Cat Blogosphere site that Setzer was gone, and came to offer my condolences. My Tungsten was hyperthyroid, too, and, like Setzer, died relatively young; she wasn't quite fifteen.

It was wonderful that Setzer knew where to go for help when he knew he needed it that cold, wet day. He knew where he would be loved and cared for. He knows it still. Godspeed, Setzer.

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

What a smart kitty he was. I'm so very sorry that his journey with you had to end so soon. Purrs of healing and condolence at the loss of your friend.

Homeless Cat Care said...

Selzer looks very sweet indeed. It was so compassionate of you and your son to take him in. I can see and feel how very much he is missed. I know what that pain is like - my heart goes out to you as you grieve. May God and the angels ease your pain.

Hi Holly I just saw that you lost Setzer on Laila and Minchie's blog and it broke my heart. But I know Sarah Michelle met her boy there he gave her a star on Catster and she always cherished it. She left on 11-1-2014 and her person Tim has had a rough time also losing Belly in 13, and Reese in 15. But he knows you have suffered too many losses recently too. Tim
