No one likes reading these posts, they're upsetting but I've wrote posts for my other deceased animals and do not want to be disrespectful to Snap. Also, my blog is made up of things I love, so my animals are going to be on here.
We got Snap and his brother Crackle (Snap, crackle, pop) about 15 years ago. Sadly Crackle went out one day and never came home.
For the majority of his life, Snap wasn't friendly. He would get into fights and have a go at our other cats. In the last year and a half he completely changed, he would love us stroking him and he was nice to the other cats (Even let our youngest cat take his food, which he NEVER does). He was going strong up until a few days ago. His body started to shut down, he went very thin and wasn't eating or drinking. I even tried feeding him chicken, which he normally wolfs down but he physically couldn't eat it.
Last night he passed away, at 15 years old on the 4th November 2010. RIP Snap, we'll miss you greatly.
If you have animals you will know that they are not just animals, they are apart of the family.
