In Memory of Malachi

Sunday night he ate his supper and seemed fine.


Sweet Malachi

Monday morning I found him in distress and struggling to breathe. I loaded him up to go to the vet but he died before we got there.

Honestly, I’m in shock about it all so I don’t know what to say.

Here is a post about how Malachi and I met.

We will miss you sweet boy.

Here is a video I made of Malachi snoring. He snored so loud!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  6. Jen, I’m very so sorry about your loss….I’m in shock, too….I remember clearly how you and Malachi met and started your life together…..why you named him as Malachi,too…..Malachi was so skinny when I saw his first picture…because he was abused by someone…..you helped him and his life had completely changed…with lovely fur brothers….I was so happy whenever I saw him being so well on your blog…..I’m sure that he had a wonderful cat life in your family….I still can’t believe that he went to OTRB though….please rest in peace, dear Malachi….angel kevin,DeDe and Sage are waiting for you.
    We send you huge hugs to your family…
    love, Angel kevin, kitties and mom

Thank you for loving him so much, and so well, and know that he had a wonderful life there with you. Hugs, purrs and much love to you all.

  23. I am so sorry, what a horrible shock. I hope it means that he barely suffered before he passed, that he felt little pain and suddenly you were there. What a nice kitty. You changed his life, and your lives will always be entwined.

  37. Again, I’m very sorry for your loss Jen. I understand that shocked feeling; after several weeks I’m still trying to come to terms with my loss – I think when we love a being it is hard to fathom that they are suddenly gone.

    Posted by savedbydogss | May 17, 2016, 5:36 AM
  38. We are so sorry for your loss. We know the shock after loosing a dear pet, the sorrow never disappers, but that dear pet lives forever in our memories and hearts. There they all are by the Rainbow Bridge, there is always summer, flowers and butterflies. All our friends are there healthy playing with each others and some day we will be there with our loved ones.

  42. So sorry… animals hide failing health so well from us that no wonder it is a shock when these heartbreaking events occur.

  43. I see from your previous post that you were looking for another home for Malachi at first…it seems he decided he’d already found the perfect one.
    I’m so sorry for your loss. The sudden ones are so hard to take, though no matter how it happens, it sucks.

  47. So sorry for the loss of Malachi. It is never easy to adapt to life without our furries. Thankfully, they leave a lot of happy memories behind to help us smile amid the tears. A warm hug, purrs and paw taps.

  51. I’m so sorry 😦 You gave him four years more than he would have, and I’m sure he knew you loved and cared for him, even at the end. You’ll see him again one day, over the Bridge.

  54. I am so sorry for your loss. You gave her a home when she needed one the most. You gave her love when she needed it the most. You have made her a loved and happy kitty sense 2011. You gave her a life sense that day she walked into your back yard and asked help me.

  55. So sorry you have lost your friend. Take care of yourself, you are under a lot of stress already. The snoring was adorable, thank you for sharing a fun memory at such a hard time.
