I am very sorry to report that Tom, my beloved Maine Coon, passed away yesterday afternoon. He was 14 years old. Tom had quite a following here on DeviantArt and my occasional shots of him proved to be very popular. He had a strong and quirky character that I tried to convey via imagined conversations between him and his admirers. Sadly, during what I thought was to have been a routine treatment for a tooth problem, he was discovered to have a huge, inoperable, squamous cell cancer that had penetrated his mouth, throat, nose, jaw, and lymph nodes. He was given two weeks to live, but that would have been a painful and distressing time. I authorised the veterinarian to put him to sleep. My wife and I are deeply shocked and heartbroken. As Tom had touched the lives of so many here as well as in his world, I thought I should post some of his photographs in memoriam.
My little visitorIn a dream you come to me
and I hold you like a baby.
You purring loudly in my ear,
I sense that you forgave me.
I caress your head in my hand
and press a kiss upon your cheek.
I miss you my little one,
is all that I can speak.
Thank you for this flying visit,
it seems you have no time.
Your spirit brings me so much comfort,
I know that you´ll be fine.
So off you go and leave me,
one time more,
up over the bridge into the clouds,
through the cat-flap in God`s door.
