Gizmo 02-11-?? / 30-12-16
Today is another bad day, 2016 sucked big time, lots of famous deaths people who we adored are gone, and now just a few hours back I had to say goodbye to Gizmo.
Will it ever get easy giving up a pet? My heart is broken again and although I know it’s really the best thing for her…why does it hurt so bad….
Gizmo and Teigertje came to me a couple of years ago, i’m not sure about the date anymore but it’s at least more than 10 years, if not longer..time is vague O_o.
Both came from my dad who due to personal reasons gave them up and wanted to send them to a pound. But Teigertje came and cuddle with me and I was sold. Gizmo was never a real cuddler at that time, and she really had her own will.
She got the nickname fat kitty cause she was a huge cat! She loved milk and anything that I would eat, fish, meat it didn’t matter! Chips and eggs, but most of all cheese and Ben & Jerry’s!!!
After Freya passed she became the new elder in our lil home, and she loved laying on top of my laptop 😄 or miauw if you sneezed! She miauwed when you would eat food and not share with her, and later on just helped herself to preferable my subway sandwiches if I left them unguarded for too long.
She also loved toys and the laser pen was her favorite toy. Always trying out the things 1st she was never afraid, always downstairs when the bell rang.
Always curious to what was happening. Even Chamook was allowed to come close but she’d do her own thing whether he was there or not. No matter who was there, Gizmo did what Gizmo wanted. She loved waking me up in the middle of the night for cuddles, or lay on my pillow and snore like a mad cat!! She snored so hard that it could wake you up from your sleep.
Suddenly she started to lose a lot of weight, but she was still eating and drinking, but she wasn’t gaining any weight. To the doctors we went, and it turned out that she had a too fast working thyroid and later on starting kidney failure.
So the meds and diet food began.
On Tuesday February 9th 2016 Gizmo was taken into surgery to remove all but 2 teeth..It was a heavy day, because she was so sick and weak it wasn’t sure if she’d make it through surgery. But like a real trooper she pulled through! Earning her the new nickname Toothless. After that she could eat everything again and I had to watch out again Gizmo still loved eating my food.
But at one point Gizmo refused to eat the diet food nor take anything that contained her meds. She really had a strong will!
I was afraid she wouldn’t make it to her birthday and she made it! So on her birthday she enjoyed a nice can of tuna and my tea. Which became something she loved more than her own water…My tea was the best thing you could drink!!
I was afraid she wouldn’t make it to Christmas but she made it! Again more yummy food and treats, cause I knew it was only a matter of time.
I was afraid she wouldn’t make it to the new year…I was right. After Christmas she developed an abscess from her 2 remaining teeth. She still ate, drank my tea, milk and ate treats, but she was constantly trying to get the abscess out with her paws. So today I went to the vets hoping there would be a cure, but seeing her age and her health (She only weighed 1.4kg now) it was better for her to let go….
When we drove to the vets I promised her I’d take her home with me again, and we cuddled!! She was still putting up a fight when she got the 1st injection, she even bit me in my arm…smiles softly thinking about that again…but after a few seconds she laid on the table and started to sleep.
You’re with Freya now Gizmo, and we will see you again…but not yet…not yet…

I’m done with 2016, too many great people have been taken from us this year… My fav song
I’d say love was a magical thing
I’d say love would keep us from pain
Had I been there, had I been there
I would promise you all of my life
But to lose you would cut like a knife
So I don’t dare, no I don’t dare
‘Cause I’ve never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
And I’m so scared, I’m so scared
Take me back in time maybe I can forget
Turn a different corner and we never would have met
Would you care
I don’t understand it, for you it’s a breeze
Little by little you’ve brought me to my knees
Don’t you care
No I’ve never come close in all of these years
You are the only one to stop my tears
I’m so scared of this love
And if all that there is is this fear of being used
I should go back to being lonely and confused
If I could, I would, I swear

The plant manager started this week and our little tree didn’t notice yet she was back, cause he refused to grow again.
Still 14 cm, some trees might kill for that length.

I don’t know what happened but our lil tree grew another 0,5 cm making him a nice young fellow of 14 cm!!!!
This must be because his water giver returned from her week off… Poor tree has to do without her for 2 more weeks now 😝 but I have faith and the watering task 😝
