Clark Kent [Jan. 28th, 2012|05:49 pm]

Sad & happy update on Clark Kent. He's found a forever home, but has been diagnosed with bone cancer and renal failure. His people have decided (rightly I think) not to put him through the trauma of cancer treatment. However long Clark has left, it'll be with people who love him. Thanks to everyone who helped him.

I can't say how much it moves me to see someone step forward and offer up their heart to be broken so that another creature will have a friend while it dies.

We share this space ship earth with some very noble souls.

I'm glad Clark is with people who care. And they're right not to put him through any more invasive horror. Little guy has been thorough enough, and just needs some love and patience. It takes a special sort of person to do what his new people are doing for him...

Thank you for the update. I'm very glad that he's found a forever home, even if it's only for a short while.

Sometimes the incredibly good people can make you forget the babd people exist. May Clark and his new person enjoy what time they have together.

Clark's life is at its end. He has bone cancer and renal failure, and his new humans have decided to euthanize rather than put him through treatment for the cancer.

No they are not euthanizing him. They are taking him home and treating his other health issues and allowing him to have a safe happy life for the time he has left. :)

He drew a bit of a short straw on the health front. Glad he has his very own humans to love him now though, he definitely deserves them.

Poor Clark. He had such a short time with such great people, but I'm glad he's ending his life on a good note.

Jackie who has adopted him sounds like a great lady. I hope that they can bless each other in whatever time he gets to spend with her. We need more humans in the world like her.

He will be warm, comfy, cozy and full of delicious meat paste for as long as he so desires to be. Replace meat paste with chocolate and I think most of us would be pretty grateful to have his security.

that's why I took Rudy in...

only the heartless could take a 16 year old cat to a shelter and not have a guilty conscious. Rudy was here for 3 years and I always feel good that his last 3 years were in a loving enviroment, he passed peacefully. The day he passed my girl furries made sure someone was always laying with him til he passed so he was never alone.

Clark has a lot on his plate medically but it also sounds like he has an overflowing excess of love to guide him on his way.
