Today was the last day for my fuzzy little baby Salem.
His liver was clogged and despite the vet managing to clear it, it got clogged again. The doctor said that there was a bad chance of the liver rupturing and poisoning his body. We had no money to continualy flush his liver out and that wouldn't have been fair to him. He was 14 almost 15 years old his body couldn't take this sort of condition and as much as I would have loved having one more Christmas with him we knew it was time to let him go. I would have done anything to help him get better but we let him got to sleep. His body was cremated but sadly we had no money to keep the ashes in an urn but I do have his collar.
Mom let me have some time with him before she took him away to the vet. The whole family took it hard. He'd been with us the longest. He was my childhood pet. We weren't always close but once we moved here to New Mexico he and I grew close. He'd follow me from room to room, meow we he see me return hope, stay with me in my room, sleep next to me and purr load as a motor boat when I started petting him. I'll miss all of that but I know he's in a better place now free of the pain he was in.
Rest in Peace my little brother Salem. I'll always love you.
I thank all of you who wished him well but sadly it was his time to go.
I'll be on DA because I need the social interaction, helps keep my mind off of things even if it's over the internet, but I won't be doing much art for now. If there's one thing you need to know when it comes to things like this. I'm very emotional, been crying rivers off and on today. Thank you for those who gave their support it meant a lot to me.
