Orko Starfux

Since I’ve been writing about my cat Orko on this blog for a long time, I just wanted to create an entry to mark the incredibly sad news of Orko’s passing. Although he is still alive, I have to head to my vet at 6pm tonight to have the little guy put down…Orko has been ill, on and off, since I got him and this past week, the recurring illness finally got the better of him. After an examination and an ultrasound, it turns out that Orko has kidney stones in both kidneys and they are barely functioning. The options are an expensive surgery which will likely only stave off the inevitable coz of the little guy’s young age, or to mercifully put him out of his misery. My heart is broken in two and I feel like I’m losing my best friend, but I know he’ll be happier and in less discomfort if I make the decision that has to be made. It will be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but J will be by my side when it happens, so I know I’ll be strong.

RIP
Orko Starfux
May 1, 2005 – February 28, 2008

You were my world for a short time, but I’ll treasure all of the incredible moments were shared together. I love you, Orko. Peace.
