When my ex husband and I separated he took one of our cats, Mr. Tibbles, and gave him to a co-worker.  He did it to be cruel. 

We never saw Mr. T again.  

A few times, the person who had T-Bone would stop by the company I work for.  I would always ask about T.  They had changed his name.  They loved having him.  Every time they mentioned how that cat could eat.

Well, apparently they paid little to no attention to what Mr. Tibbles ate.  They fed him people food daily as well.

Mr. Tibbles, whose personality I cannot even discuss because I will cry harder than I already am.......he was an amazing, amazing cat........... was not even 5 years old.

He died Tuesday.  Of cardiac arrest.  He was too fat.

I am so upset.  I am so angry. 

The girls I often talked about T, to every one.  He never left our hearts.

Now he is gone.  He deserved better.  I failed him.

I am so upset.............

RIP Mr. Tibbles.  We love you.............

I am so sorry to hear this. He is such a beautiful boy. You did not fail him...your ex-husband and Mr. Tibbles' new "owners" did.

How could your ex do that to the girls?  You don't take pets away from kids.

I'm sorry for that!  You can't blame yourself.  I'm sure you are suffering over this, you have my best thoughts coming your way.
