    He died peacefully after I made the decision to let him go. He's home now forever and no longer in pain. I have no other words right now, this hurts so much.

    You did a great job of looking after Bronx and managing a difficult disease. It bought Bronx some quality time. My condolences (and respect) to you and your family.

    Our Acro kittehs take so much from us. But in return they give us back so much more. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    After Leo's SRT, I was also happy that you were able to get Bronx the SRT (radiation) as well. Acromegaly is such a cruddy disease. You gave Bronx a 2.5 year life extension that made his last years as healthy as possible.
    ...
    I think that they know
    the love that we give,
    the patience, the worries,
    just so they could live.

    I am sorry your sweet boy is now gone. May he land gently at the Bridge, waiting for you there. Bronx was loved.cat_wings>o

    Our acros have so much to deal with, and Bronx was lucky to have you as a caregiver to help him have as good a life as he did. You also had a lot to deal with lately, in caring fo Bronx. Take care of you too. This time is very hard on us.

    Remember the good times. It helps.:bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Oh Paul, I am truly in shock and honestly heart broken for you. I just happened by and saw your post and am in tears...Bronx was such a lovely kitty, and holds a special place in my heart, over the last few years that I have gotten to know you and Bronx, he will be sadly missed. I know how much Bronx meant to you, and I hope the fond memories will give you some peace and comfort. I will light a candle for Bronx tonight. So very sorry it was time to say goodbye.

    Fly Free handsome boy.

    Bronx was such a beautiful soul - I didn't know you Paul, but every time I saw a post of yours, I admired Bronx. I hardly want to imagine the shock of the loss of such a special needs (equals tighter bonding so often) friend. My kitty was already my favorite, but her FD and other issues have me bonded like never before. That's why I hurt so much for you. Your deep devotion will hurt you more now, but bring more peace later.

    Thank you all for your comforting thoughts and words. It really helps my grieving to know how much Bronx was loved and a part of the family here. Taking care of Bronx thru the horrible disease of Acromegly brought me and him even closer together, and all of us here can relate to the special bond that happens when we treat our loved ones through sickness and disease.

    Oh Paul, I am so very sorry it was Bronx's time to leave you. My heart is aching for the pain you are feeling right now. Those Acro kitties are so very special, and they sneak an extra piece of your heart. You were such a fantastic dad to your sweet boy; I don't want you to ever doubt that. You did so much for Bronx, and you gave him so much more time. It was obvious to all of us the love you two had for each other. Sending you vines of love, comfort, and peace during this painful time. Take care of you my friend. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Fly free darling Bronx, and land softly. You will be missed so much sweetheart.

    Paul, I’m so very sorry. I remember when Bronx was diagnosed acro ... I think it was shortly after Tubby had SRT ... and I’ve followed Bronx’s story since. I have a special place in my heart for acro kitties. They really are troupers and so very, very tough and stoic. And trusting. With that trust comes great responsibility and I think you no doubt moved mountains to help him. Kudos for your dedication..

    It’s always hard to say goodbye, but I think it’s even harder when they have medical issues and consume such a significant percentage of our thoughts and day-to-day routine. The rhythm of life changes after they’re gone ... I always liken it to the old Batman TV show where the screen tilts in certain scenes. Our world tilts for awhile. It eventually straightens again, but those first days are brutal. Please know that my thoughts are with you.

    It was a cold February morning in 2006. I had a van (for work) parked in front of a housing complex in a bad section of the Bronx for a week and was picking it up to get it back to NJ. As I started to drive, I heard a cat screeching loud. I was like oh no, a cat must've got under my hood for warmth and it is stuck or hurt. I pulled over on the Grand Concourse (a very, very busy street) and looked around for the cat. Nothing under the hood so I looked around under the van. There was a tiny gray kitten wedged up above the spare tire that is attached under the van. He was looking down on me and meowing loudly. He looked pretty wedged up there and I was afraid to take him down on this street because he would just get hit by a car. So I drove into an alleyway to see if I could get him unwedged. I went underneath and he did not fight me at all and let me grab him and put him down. He was shivering and would not move from under the van. I kept saying to him, go back to your home but he wouldn't move. So I decided to put him in the van and drive him back to NJ and give him to the good folks of START (an animal rescue where I got my civie Poochie that was about 6 at that time). As I am driving on the George Washington Bridge 5 minutes later, he jumps in my lap and just stares at me and purrs for the entire ride home. Maybe it was the warmth of my lap or that I saved him from a rough, short life on the streets in the Bronx, but he was the happiest kitty ever. I didn't want 2 cats since I knew Poochie would not accept a 2nd cat after being an only cat her whole life. So I contacted START and they took him and said he would find a home easy since it is rare to have a kitten up for adoption in the winter. My live-in GF at the time insisted that I get him back and that he belongs with me. So after one night of her hounding me, I called START back and said I would take him. Poochie, who was more of my GF's cat, was not very happy! But Bronx was mine. He followed me everywhere, greeted me at the door every day, slept with me and was always by my side. He was always a big talker, probably knowing his loud crying was what saved him. We were made for each other and he made my life so happy.

    I am devastated right now but I know time heals. The next few days will be hard, so many reminders of him in here. His beds, his meds, water fountain, pet feeder, etc... Waking up this morning and no Bronx here kills me.

Go at your own pace, and do extra healthy things for yourself along the way. I wish you some special happy tears when thinking about that most special day that Bronx found you.

    Hehe I can just imagine how charming Bronx was as a wee kitten. His gorgeous eyes alone would make anyone melt. What a smart little guy to find exactly the right person...you. While you may not have realized it at the time that adorable kitty had you at Meow :), and completely sealed the deal with a few extra purrs and cuddles just for good measure!

    Just take it one day at a time. Part of the challenge is you miss them so terribly much, your heart just aches...and you think maybe it's not true, half expecting to see them walking around the corner, or sleeping in their favourite spot. I know how hard the emptiness feels. That, and all the efforts, meds, pokeys, food selection, pretty much everything that was a part of your daily routine that you willingly did is just done and no longer needed. It really is a loving caring bond, but when it's also with your heart kitty, one that just is that special one in a million, it's hard to know how to be without them. :bighug::bighug:

    Heartbroken ... Saw your post last night and just couldn’t respond. I didn’t want to believe it. I am so sorry that it was Bronx’s time to leave you. I’ve always felt a special connection to Bronx. Maybe it was the shared acro diagnosis or that Gizmo and Bronx had to be long lost brothers. Before the diabetes diagnosis and finding this group, I would have never believed I could feel so much for cats I’ve never met, but Bronx was just one of those kitties that I loved to see an update on. Thank you for sharing the story of how Bronx came into your life. You and him were meant to be together. He chose wisely. May time heal your pain and may Gizmo and Bronx meet and catch up with each until we can be with them again. :rb_icon:cat_wings>o

    The reminders are haunting for a while, no bones about it. But eventually they will be very comforting. You'll have to decide if if feels best to leave them all where they are, or tuck them away for now, but aside from the meds if you can find someone to sell or donate to, be sure that you keep all of his stuff. When my second cat (ever) passed, we left the blankie that I found him on at home and rushed him to the ER in at the vet. I couldn't touch it, I couldn't look at it. I would give anything to have that blankie back now.

    Your care of Bronx was truly inspiring. Please know that. And know how sad I am for you. :bighug:

    I didn't realize that he had really faint stripes until I saw that pic of him on the purple-y plaid blankie, I always thought that he was solid grey. He's very regal. So handsome.

    I don't know what's worse, being loved by such a gorgeous creature and having to say goodbye or just having them love you so much while they're here with us...and having to let go of that love. These little heartbreakers...we're all with you Paul...sending thoughts your way. You were the best daddy bean and I'm sure he knew that when he chose you that day in the Bronx. :bighug::bighug:

    Thank you all so much for your words, I have read each and every one of your thoughts over and over and am overwhelmed how much Bronx was loved here. I wish I could thank you each individually.

    When I open shades in the bedroom every morning I will be looking down on his final resting place in my yard. Right now that makes me cry every morning, but I know over time it will make me smile.

    Thank you for sharing your story of how you and Bronx got together. It was meant to be. By the way, there was one other acro kitty similarly found in a truck. That was Tracy and Leo, well before your time. Tough kitties those acros, and they pick their beans well.

    I also love seeing your pictures of Bronx and his fur family. Such a cutie! I found looking at pictures helped bring back all the good memories.

    Dear Paul,
    Bronx was such a wonderful kitty: so brave, so devoted to you, so much loved by everyone here. I am immensely sorry that it was his time to fly free. But you know that he is "in good paws" at the Bridge with all of our GAs. And he lives on forever in that special place in your heart that belongs only to him.
    Thank you for telling us his story and for the pictures of your handsome boy. What a lucky kitten he was to have chosen your van for safety! What a fine home you gave him and such good care! Bronx was one tough kitty. His life is an inspiration for so many of us. Fly free, dear Bronx. You are much loved. cat_wings>o

    Take care of yourself, Paul. Grieving must take its course. Remember that Bronx is surrounded by his pals at the Bridge until that wonderful day when you will be reunited.

    Dear Paul - I am so very sorry it was time for Bronx to leave you. Reading this news has left me crying with you and for you during this very difficult time.

    You have been his devoted daddy for basically his entire life. We all know how hard this is and share your grief for such a special guy.

    Thanks for sharing your story, photos, and so many very helpful learnings from your journey together. You have been a mentor to many of us. Please take some comfort in knowing he has so many friends to greet him while he waits very patiently for you to find him once again - carol

    I have only been a forum member for a short while, and your tribute and 'gotcha' story of how you and Bronx were there for each other from the beginning was very special to read. I wanted to share something with you that has comforted me when I have lost a beloved and share it in hopes that it may help your heart heal...
