The Prince of Cats


I’ve talked a bit on here about Huey and his special magic. I’m beyond heartbroken to let you all know that we lost him to another bad blood clot a week and a half ago. He made it 1 year 10 months from his first bad clot, when they gave him 3-6 months tops. He was only 6 and a half years old, still young in kitten years. It wasn’t enough time, but he was still a miracle kitty to us. And yes, lost, because I am wandering from room to room looking for him. He was one in a million in a world of cats, that extra-magic, extra-conscious knowing kind of cat. I will miss him forever.  


  1. Oh, so sad to hear this. Wishing you lots of hugs and love. We lost my old man kitty earlier this year, so this pulls so hard at my heartstrings. xoxo

  2. I am so sorry, Tamera. 6 and a half is much too short. I can’t imagine how hard it’s been. Lots of love to you.

  3. Ah I am so sorry for your loss. It’s really hard to loose a beloved pet……I know how you feel. Sending you virtual good wishes and kind thoughts. All the best.

  4. Ah damn it – I’m so sorry. Pussycats are the best, and seeing his lovely fangy face up there makes me weepy. What a handsome fellow.

  5. I’m so sorry. My kitty Max died at 6.5 too, after we had him only a year. Sudden kidney failure. It was one of the worst things I’ve ever experienced.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how you feel. Take time to grieve and remember all the sweet, funny things about him. Take care of yourself. Hugs!

  7. So sorry to hear about Huey. Reading your post got me all teary. I’m sorry he passed as such a young guy, but I love the story of how he traveled a week and a half to get back to your apartment. My kitty, Willie Nelson, and I are sending lots of love and purrs.
