This is a long overdue post which I didnt get to pen in my thoughts. At the end of January, our favourite and beloved cat died. The vet said it was due to some viral infection. I had taken him earlier to the vet to be neutered, in the hope that he would be much healthier and not impregnate the female cats. I have seen the cats that have neen neutered, they grow so much bigger and not springing their scents everywhere in the house. But 10 days after the procedure he developed a high temperature, couldnt eat nor drink and passed away a few days later. Almost everyone blamed me for neutering him, they kept on harping it on me for losing Blackie. I really realy felt ( still feel..) so very sad at the incident. But its not in our hands to control life and death. For days I cried. His sister "Silver" missed him too, for she is all alone in the house now. She went round meowing and looking for her brother. Such a pitiful sight. Then on saturday nite, the 2nd of feb, I was sitting in front of my computer, wanting to write about Blackie, but was overcomed by so much sadness. I was wallowing in self pity with loads of regrets in my heart. If only Blackie is still alive... how happy we all could be. But it was just not meant to be. The next morning, at 6am I was woken up by a call from a very dear and close friend. My heart skipped a beat when I heard her voice ... Just would like to inform you that Kudin is no more with us. He passed away at 11.30 last night. That is her only son, a handsome young man in his early twenties. My tears dropped like rain again. I couldnt imagine how hurt and sad his mother must be. But she accepted the fate, "redha" is the word. No matter how painful... Al Fatehah for him. I lost my Blackie, my dear friend lost her only son ... But life must go on. Time may heal the pain but not the scar that has been left behind.
