preacher passed peacefully yesterday. so heartbreaking to lose such a young and happy cat because he was too badly broken to be able to fix a second time. not that we ever really fixed him the first time, but at least he could leak and now he lost even that ability. asked about the possibility of PU surgery..i asked dave. he said that wouldn’t help. the problem was not in his penis or urethra, the problem was within the bladder muscle itself and we couldn’t remove his bladder..(we can for people, but not for animals.)

sometimes i think these guys have a shelf life…we bring them back from the brink of hopelessness once, but then lose them again not so far down the road. maybe once death truly marks them, it is a far gone, or in a few months. or maybe it is just what it is…some lives get to go on and some lives don’t.

preacher thru great effort and expense got the chance to live for another year. he was happy, he was loved..maybe that is all he was going to get. i hope for him, it was enough.

rest in peace preacher, you were a very good cat and i am so sorry we couldn’t save you the second time around.



  1. Rip preacher. You were a sweet boy and will be missed

  2. Sweet Preacher – he had a year of love and happiness, that’s more than some get. Rest peacefully, little one.
