NWR: So sad! My kitty Moses passed away this morning

I got the call from FH this morning after I arrived to work that Moses died in his arms. I adopted Moses when he was 3 months old. His previous owner was going to euthanize him because Moses had a broken leg. My vet convinced me to take him. I think Moses knew I saved him because he was always so fiercely protective of me and purred so loudly and contently in my arms. I got his name from the 90's song "Jessie" by Joshua Kadison. I heard that song when I was in college and thought it would be cool to have a cat named Moses, but he had to be a typical, "average" looking cat. Moses was a little gray tabby - just the image I had in my mind. He would have been 16 in June. I attached 3 pictures that depict Moses the best: friend and protector. He welcomed baby Layla when I first brought her home from the pound as a timid, little dog. He comforted and cared for Sophie when she had painful dental surgery. He spent the whole week next to her, grooming her and keeping her company.

    Sorry for your loss, losing a furbaby is really hard. Know that is will still be protecting you from above.

    Thanks everyone.

    @JerseyGirl: sorry for your recent loss, too.

    It's hard being at work when all I want to do is go hold him and say goodbye. But I have contractors working on my house so it's not private there, and work requires my attention right now. . . this really sucks.

    I'm so sorry. It sounds like Moses lived a full and awesome life because of your selfless decision almost 16 years ago! So precious!

    @earias- thank you. I know how hard it is to focus. When you are done work hopefully you will be able to have some private time and say goodbye.

    I am so sorry. Losing a furbaby hurts like hell. And to be stuck at work, double punch to the gut. Moses is still by your side even if you can't see him. Your story made me tear up Smiley sad still grieving the loss of my own last summer. Sending you a big virtual (((((HUG)))))

    ETA I am so glad he passed in the arms of your FH and not alone. I hope you take some comfort in that.
