”my cat is pissing all over my new rented house and if you can’t take him, i am putting him down today”

that was leo’s “need rescuing” phone call back in may…

i should have let her put him down.

except i didn’t know he was heading towards a highly aggressive lymphoma and i didn’t know he would die homeless.

oh..that is a lie. i did know he would die homeless…no one adopts pissing cats.

i just hoped he would be here longer, not just a few months. i hoped that we would be his home and he would be ok with that.

leo laid on the clinic table with his chin on my arm. he purred as i gently stroked and kissed him, reassuring him that he was loved.

but in my head i was thinking, this is so grossly unfair.

such a sweet and loving cat and this was his end?

another shelter statistic with no family to hold him as he took his last breaths.

rest in peace leo, you were a good cat…
