    Thanks everyone.
    I can't believe I have to write this. But we had to say goodbye to Boomer this afternoon. After almost 6 years as a diabetic it was cancer that took him from us and only 3.5 weeks after being dx. He got very sick very quickly. He joins his sisters Peanut and Snickers and his brother Allen. My heart is broken.

    I am so very sorry, Judy. 6 years of diabetes and 4 trips to the falls shows what an incredible MamaBean you were to your sweet boy. I know he will always be watching over you from The Bridge with his heart filled with love, until you can be together again. As Wendy said, until then, he is surrounded by much love with our GAs while he waits for you. You and Boomer touched many people and kitties...hearts are breaking and tears are falling all around the world tonight. You are in our prayers....:bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    And Jill and Lucy – you look out for this little one and hold him close.

He is no longer in pain, please remember that, I know that doesn't make it any easier. He knows that you loved him like crazy, Please take care and we will never forget your precious boy. Gentle hugs:bighug: Whenever I hear of a kitty passing I just can't help crying.

Please give your mama and papa signs that all is well, to comfort them and to dry their tears in these times ahead.

    Judy, I can’t tell you how sad I am for you and your DH having to say goodbye to your sweet Boomer today. I'm sure it doesn’t make it any easier or make it hurt any less, but you did the best thing for Boomer by putting him first and letting him go. It was the ultimate unselfish act of love, please try to take comfort in that and knowing he was so lucky having spent his whole life being loved and cherished by you. R.I.P. sweet Boomer, we love you. :bighug:

    Dear Judy, checking in today, and I had hoped to see Boomer feeling better. Boomer's journey with diabetes and all of your efforts, both you and DH, have always been an inspiration to me. Seeing someone here managing diabetes so well for so long makes it seem possible for the rest of us. It takes very special, caring dedicated people...Boomer was so loved, and your loss is felt by so many, I'm so very sorry. It is truly unfair that cancer became the insurmountable challenge for you. :bighug::bighug:

    Judy, so so sorry to hear of Boomer’s passing. You were a great mom to him right till the very end. You must remember that everything you did and every decision you made was for his benefit. I’m sure, if he could, he would of thanked you from the bottom of his heart for all of those days and nights you were there by his side tending to his health and well being. He will always be within your heart until the day you are both reunited. He is free now to live a life as a healthy kitten. They teach us to how to love unconditionally which is a true gift in and of itself. Sending you lots of love and healing vines. Maybe, with some time, Boomer will send you a little angel to love and care for, just like you did for him. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    I heard... and I wanted to come tell you my heart is breaking for you. I wish it could be different and Boomer could've stayed with you forever. I know how much you love him, and I know the grief of losing one of our extra sweet little buddies. It's so hard.

    I hope it helps to know that you're surrounded by friends who understand your loss and grieve with you.

    Fly free little Boomer and land softly.

    Julie
    Still missing my sweet punkin after 6 years. Our hearts hold their memories forever.

    Can only imagine how devastated you are. I guess one can only take consolation in knowing that he is free from pain and in a better place.
    Really sorry for your loss.

    I first read of Boomer's crossing when I was at my hair stylist's. I had a hard time fighting back the tears and had to wait to post until I was home.

    My very deepest sympathies to you and your DH. Boomer was such a special cat, and we all watched through the years as he went OTJ on and off. You have always shown how much you love him and would do anything for him, and you have once again proved it by setting him free. Remember, he is never really gone, as he will always be in your heart.:bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Fly free, Boomer, and land softly. :rb_icon:

    Saying thank you here just isn't enough. :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:
    I haven't been able to read the posts yet; I've tried but the tears come too quickly.
    I felt Boomer jump up on the bed last night. I assumed it was DH moving that I had actually felt but when I mentioned it this morning he nodded; I guess he had felt it too.
    I also heard Boomer call me last night. I guess he still needs his food stirred:rolleyes:
    I got up this morning....and didn't know what to do. I have followed the same morning routine for so long.

    I agree with Darcy in that it was Boomer you and DH sensed last night ❤️ I truly believe God sends their little spirits to love on us and assure us , as if to say " I'm fine, Momma...and I will see you again "....no doubt, absolutely no doubt ❤️

    For Judy and Boomer
    I don't really know the reason I felt a connection to you both. We barely qualify as neighbors and we've never met so "friends" might be a stretch. I do know you let us all into your hearts and in return so many of us cared deeply for both of you. You made it so easy for us to care. I really have not been here that long and I always thought Boomer would be here forever. He was yours to hold but we all loved him.
    Cynthia, Dickson and the boys.

    Dear Judy,
    Boomer’s visit to you and DH last night was a wonderful sign that he is safe and well at the Bridge. I know that he will continue to send you loving messages, and each one will bring you joy. Boomer loves you so much.

    It is hard to confront the reality that a 6-year diabetes routine is suddenly gone. I still put Rusty’s glass of water on the breakfast table and take a minute to remember the 8 great years he shared his life with us. May your memories of Boomer always bring a smile to your eyes.

    Fly free sweet Boomer cat_wings>o

    In deepest sympathy and loving memory,

    Ella & Edward and their GA kitties Rusty and Stu :rb_icon:

    More :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug: for you and DH. We have such an incredible bond with our sugarcats that losing the routine of their care is much harder than anyone outside the FD world could imagine. It just becomes a part of who we are and how we exist. I don't think we're ever the same again, and while that's really hard, especially at first, it's also a good thing....these kitties have changed our hearts and souls for the better, and because of that, they do live on with us forever, even though they are just out of reach for now.

    How wonderful that Boomer visited you last night. What a sweet boy.

    Judy, my heart is absolutely aching right now, and I'm trying to write this through tears. When I signed on I felt fear when I didn't see a post from you today. Then my heart broke when I scrolled further and saw this thread. I am so deeply sorry it was Boomer's time to leave you. I hope you can take solace knowing that he is no longer in pain. Boomer was such an amazing kitty, and your 6-year journey with FD is a testament to his strong spirit and to your love for your sweet boy. I absolutely loved getting to know you and Boomer through this crazy FD dance, and I want to thank you for sharing him with us. I'm sending you and DH many hugs and vines of love, comfort, and peace during this difficult time. Fly free sweet Boomer and land softly. You are greatly missed dear boy. :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Keeping you in my thoughts... May the love you shared helps soften the sadness, as you go on without him by your side but always in your heart. You gave him the gift of a gentle goodbye as difficult as it was to say goodbye...

    My sympathies for you in this horrible time. From all your spreadsheets, anyone can see all the love and time you gave your sweet sugar cat Boomer while he was here. He knew he was loved from all that tender care and treatment you gave him.

    May your sweet kitteh fly freely, and land softly at the Bridge. Boomer was loved.cat_wings>o

    Thank you so much for all your comments and thoughts. :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug: I haven't been able to read them all yet; I read a few at a time then I get too emotional and need to walk away. I miss Boomer so very much.
