Kitty Brother Troubles 5/16/93-3/23/10

Tucker's Momma here. Tucker's oldest kitty brother Troubles has gone to the rainbow bridge today.

Troubles was almost 17 years old and was diagnosed with diabetes 4 1/2 years ago. He had two urinary blockages in a row last year at this time and this morning we woke to another bladder problem. There was too much blood in his bladder and something was seriously wrong. We made the choice no pet owner wants to make, but it was his time. We all will miss him dearly as he was the longest living pet in all the family. May he roll in the grass and enjoy the naps in the sun with the others at the rainbow bridge.


  1. Oh Tucker, I am soooo very much sorry that your Troubles had to cross the bridge. I understand how sad you feel. My paws are crossed for you all at this sad time.

  2. OH NO! oh tuckr and tucker mommish we are so furry sowy to hear of these sad events. we are sending you our most heartfelt pibble woos and will keep you guys in our prayers in this difficult time.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss; no doubt he'll find a sunny spot right next to our 20 year old Maine Coon who was also diabetic. We'll light a candle to help him on his way.

  10. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Troubles. We joke about kitties a lot, but I really love them very much. We had a cat named Coony that resembled Trouble. She lived to be almost 16. It's amazing how long they can live with a good home and a lot of love, which I have no doubt you provided for Troubles.

    Sending big hugs your way,
    Love, Shannon

  11. oh Tucker, I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty brother. Mom thinks he's up at the Rainbow Bride frolicking with Sophie KitTON...chasin meeces, and kickin Great Dane butts.

    RIP Troubles
