Had to bury one of my cats today.

We found him yesterday in the yard, laying on his side. He was panting with shallow breathes and had blood and flies all over his backside. He started throwing up blood when we moved him on a towel .

Our asshole neighbors have shit cars parked in the back of their yard. We live 500ft back from the road so we're about even with the asshole's cars.

We figure Bolt got into some glycol or something. We had him put down last night after not being able to clear his stomach. the poison had gone too far.

He was the toughest cat I ever knew and held on all day until we decided to say goodbye to our buddy. The vet said there was no hope.

He was half Bengal and half tomcat something or other. He was 10 years old to the month.

He has been with me the whole time I moved to the US and got married to my wife.

Bolt enjoyed picking on my other cats and beating up my dogs. Then he would snuggle with my dogs just to freak them out. He liked to block the dogs from getting back in the house just for fun.

We used to call him "Bolt The Dick". He truly was a very loving cat to humans. He just enjoyed messing with any other animal whether it be a raccoon, dog, possum or cat.

He had a white lightning bolt on his back and thus his name.

We'll miss you buddy.

I fucking HATE this shit! :(

This is him standing, blocking the shot of my other cats in happier times.

I remember a couple years ago, I went outside to stop Bolt from fucking with a rabbit he had cornered on "his" porch. I grabbed him and let the rabbit get away.

I look at Bolt and he had all three hooks from a Mepps Black Fury #3 (fishing lure) in his right front foot. he was down at our creek doing something bad I'm sure and got hooked in it.
We had to get it surgically removed. He didn't give a shit and just wanted to chase the rabbit.

He was a great big 20lb, bad ass cat.

Thanks guys.

Losing a cat may seen somewhat petty to some, but to me they are my family.

I enjoy my pets more than I do 99% of the people I know.

Dude you are an animal lover....I'm sure others feel the same. I know i do.
I'm terribly sorry for your loss. Terribly.
