JastaElf and His (Feline) Sylvan Majesty, Thranduil
« on: November 30, 2017, 06:19:15 pm »
JastaElf's senior kitty, Thranduil, has been diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to a year to live.  That is sad enough news on its own, but Life in general has been kicking Jasta around a lot lately, and this news, while never good, is a masterpiece of bad timing for her and her household.

Please hold up Thrandy (as he is affectionately known) and Jasta and the family as they go through this difficult time.

Here is His (Feline) Sylvan Majesty, Thranduil, in the photo Jasta uploaded to the Gallery:

"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

JastaElf, Thrandy and family will be in my thoughts.  Cancer is a difficult diagnosis to deal with.

Thrandy is a cute grey tabby. I wish he and JastaElf many cuddles and purr-fests in the time they have together.

Sad news. Prayers for Jasta and family and HFM (His feline majesty). What a wonderful name for a cat.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Today, around 1:30 p.m. US Eastern time, JastaElf is taking Thranduil for the last vet visit.  Please keep her, him, and the family in your thoughts/prayers/whatever you do in this difficult time.

Sorry for so many edits.  If you can't view the attachment to this post, the photo is in the Gallery, under Fur Kids.  It should be the most recent photo in that section.  ~DR

It's such a hard thing to do even when you know it's the right thing to do.  They will be in my thoughts.

Sympathy.  Prayers for a gentle trip to the rainbow bridge.

I'm so sorry to hear about kitty Thrandy. Always a hard time when we are losing our fur-babies. May they have lots of good times in the time that is left.

According to Jasta, Thranduil had a very gentle passing, the vet's office staff being very kind and considerate of them both.  She was with him, holding him until the end. Then she arranged him in his favorite sleeping position and wrapped him up herself. I believe she's all right, grateful for their time together, but will miss him sorely.

I'm so very sorry to hear that Thranduil has gone to The Rainbow Bridge.  It's so hard to have to make that last trip. Thoughts & prayers for JastaElf & family.
