12.11.12 An Incredible Heart: Goodbye Muffy

11 Dec


I probably told you The Muffin Man’s story more than once, but his story was one well worth telling. He was one of those cats that made every human feel like they were the only one in the world to him: you were his special human (while he was in your lap). When V went to pick a cat out at the shelter, Muffin picked V, not the other way around. He had only one problem his whole life, his heart. He had heart trouble and was on daily medication and regular EKG exams. I guess his heart was so incredibly loving that it just kept ticking despite what the vets’ thought. I am sorry to tell you that The Muffin Man’s heart, after 18 years or so, could no longer beat. His physical being has left this earth and us. We will love you forever, Muffy. You will always be our Muffin Man.

This loss hurts like losing Squash did, there are just some furry companions that have extra special strings.

Now we are 5 at the zoo from 7.  This has been really hard.

NOT Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
