Meow Monday


This is not the update I was expecting to give today. Nacho Man Kitty Savage passed away last week.


Nacho Man had a condition called Pyothorax. It is basically where one lung and the cavity outside the lung fills with fluid. It is not a common condition. Our local vet had never seen a case of it.

We did everything possible to help Nacho Man fight off the infection. In the end, his little heart couldn't take it. 

He passed away in Auburn when they were prepping him for his surgery. The vet and vet tech were shocked. They said he was feisty and flirting with all the ladies before surgery. They couldn't believe that he died. They gave him CPR, but he was gone.

Chicken Legs saw him after he passed away and said everyone in the vet office was stunned and upset. The vet tech was crying with him.😿


Nacho Man Kitty Savage was only with us for about a year, but we are absolutely heartbroken over his passing. He was the sweetest kitty I've ever had. He was so loving. Always slow blinking at me. He LOVED being on the screened deck watching the birds, making biscuits on his blanket and drooling, sleeping. and playing with Jack. 

We can't believe that he is gone. The house is empty without him.

  3. Steph, I am so sorry. It’s been almost 7 years exactly since I lost my Simon to the same condition. It was a long time before I could read your Meow Monday updates after I lost him, it was too raw. I know Nacho Man was living his best life with you, and had immeasurable love. Thank you for sharing him with us. I grieve along with you.

  8. Miss Stephanie, I am broken hearted for you. As I have 4 fur babies myself and I don't know what I'd do if something happened to one of them. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you and your family. I so enjoy your posts and recipes. Of course, my favorite is Meow Monday! I look forward to seeing your pics every Monday. Nacho Man will be missed.

  9. Miss Stephanie, I am broken hearted for you. I have 4 fur babies myself and I don't know what I'd do if something happened to one of them. We have one who is special needs, as she is blind. But, she acts like any other cat and loves to play! I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I sure do love your posts and recipes! My favorite is Meow Monday, as I look forward to your pics. They put a smile on my face. Nacho Man will surely be missed.

  14. As everyone else has said, I am so sorry to hear that your kitty died. Losing a pet is heartbreaking. We lost our beloved dogs a couple of years ago and I still cry when I think of them. Will be praying that you will have some consolation in remembering him and all the love you gave him.

  15. So very sorry about Nacho man. I loved reading about his antics every week. He was a blessed kitty to have y'all taking care of him.

  16. Hugs to you and your family and all who loved Nacho Man. I totally understand the depth of your loss, as my cat died as I was getting her into out truck to take her to the vet. Was prepared that she may not return, but I was not prepared that we never even got out of the driveway before she died. We had her for 14 years, from a tiny kitten that had been born feral. I don't know if it will help or not, but I can truthfully report we have seen and felt her coming back to visit. Your Nacho will do the same, I am sure.

  19. My heart breaks for you. I have two elderly cat babies and know losing them is coming down the road. To lose a young one is especially heartbreaking. Although I did not comment last week, you and Nacho Man were (and are) in my thoughts and prayers. Be gentle with yourself and take time to grieve.

  20. I am so very sorry to read this. I know your heart is so broken. Losing those little furbabies is so hard. Their tiny little pawprints leave gaping holes in our hearts when they leave us. I'm so thankful you gave him a home and loved him well.

  23. Oh so sorry. I looked in on Meow Monday first thing today. Crying with you all day. Don’t know what to say other than I really do know your pain. When our little one is so young there’s just no way to make it feel better. Only time.
    I’m just so so sorry. I was worried about Jack, but of course not your sweet little Nacho. Love to all your family and again, I’m so very sorry.

  30. Oh Steph I am so sorry. I said a prayer for all of you. I thought because he was so young he could have pulled thru. In his short life he had the best family to live with and the best life a kitty could. Reading your posts inspired me to get a rescue girl kitty and is now my slow blinking shadow. Hugs to all of you.
