Memories of Max

The story of my best friend Max. Max appeared in my life in the spring of 2001. My neighbor on the next street had seen him on a highway entrance ramp so she picked him up and brought him home so he would not get hurt out there. She fully intended to find his original caretakers but then her own personal tragedy struck. Her house had a terrible fire and she had to take her own cats and move away for a while leaving the big stray behind. At that point I had not seen him but heard that several neighbors were placing food out for him and he was doing ok. Well one day I headed outside and there he was right in my next door neighbor's yard. I walked over to pet him and he turned out to be quite a friendly guy. He followed me to my house and onto the deck. Little did I know at the time but of the 20 or so houses in the neighborhood, I had officially been picked. The big ol' stray decided this was going to be his home. The only problem was I already had two cats and really did not want a third. So I fed him on the deck every day while I made the futile effort to find his original caretakers. He became a daily fixture at my house and seemed quite comfortable with me. At one point he was bitten on the back by another animal so I treated his injury with loving care so infection would not set in. He was so well behaved. I bought him an enclosed litter box to use as a shelter against the weather and he went right into it as soon as I placed a blanket inside. One day he tried to walk into the house and I said "Where do you think you are going? You don't live here!" So he turned around and walked back out onto the deck but I swear he turned to me and said "Not yet, but I will!" During the hot summer days he would hide under the neighbor's shrubs to escape the heat but the second I turned into my driveway he would come running across the street like a short little chubby puppy. Yep, I was picked alright!! September rolled around and since the cold weather was heading in I decided to take him to my vet to have him vaccinated and checked for any contagious illnesses. He was given a clean bill of health so I started to slowly introduce him into the house. After the second day when I let him back outside he was on the deck in the morning with a serious face injury due to another encounter with some animal. As I later found out, this cat would not fight back. So off to the vet we went again and after surgery and two weeks of irrigating the wound in his face he was back to normal and pretty well healed up. The only change now was he instantly became an inside cat! I couldn't afford to let him outside anymore. Oh he protested for a day or two but that was just token resistance. As I said earlier, he had picked me and this house and that was that. It wasn't long before Max as I now had named him latched onto me and followed me everywhere in the house. I am sure he was showing his appreciation to me for finally taking him in after all those months. He turned out to be a great cat and a very gentle soul. The other two cats, Bandit and Benson, never really accepted his presence but they did tolerate it. They would occassionally walk up to Max and whack him and walk away but he would just sit there and do nothing. That is when I understood how he kept getting beat up outside. He just did not want to fight. He just wanted to be. Where ever I was, he was there. If I was watching TV he was there on the sofa or in the cat bed next to the sofa. If I was on the computer he was on the bed or on the floor by my side. He was just always there. Not long after taking over the house Max had an occassional problem with discharge from a small growth in his ear. I would take him to the vet and they would clean it and give me medication and it would go away for a while. For some reason it kept coming back and the vet finally said that we should remove the growth and see what it was. After getting all his "counts" where they should be the growth was removed in mid-April 2007. The next appointment for follow-up was April 30th. I brought him in and the bombshell was dropped on me. The growth was cancerous. My heart sank and my eyes filled with tears. I just could not believe it. My options were everything from surgery, radiation, and chemo to doing nothing and bringing him home to be comfortable. The vet said about 11 months. I was devastated but I knew I had to make some decisions and they would be based solely on what was best for Max. I owed him that. I contacted a holistic vet and had an appointment for the next Saturday May 5th. She was much more optimistic that with treatment and a change in diet Max would probably live for 3 more years. She did not sugarcoat it and she made it clear that the cancer would get him but we would be able to slow it down to give Max more time. That was my decision at the time. With the thought of keeping all the options open I also made an appointment with an animal oncologist to look at Max. He wanted to remove his inner ear canal. Very invasive and would leave him deaf in that ear. I just couldn't do that to my best friend. I brought him home fairly comfortable in my decision to treat him holistically. Max and the other cats all seemed to be doing well with the new grain free diet. Their coats looked better and Max even had a shine in his eyes. I had the feeling that perhaps Max was misdiagnosed. After all it wouldn't be the first time. On June 8th after returning home from work I let Max out on the deck so he could enjoy the beautiful spring weather which he was happily doing. I was so happy for him I took several pictures of him relaxing. He was so good. Saturday June 9th Max was not by my side when I woke up but down in the basement. It was unusual but not unprecedented. I just assumed he was a little under the weather. Later in the day he was still down there so I brought some food down to him. He only ate a little and I was beginning to be concerned. When he remained in the basement on Sunday morning my concern heightened. I called the holistic vet for guidance but she was out of town at a conference. Her assistant called me and gave me the number of the holistic vet on stand-by. I called her and her assistant scheduled an appointment for a consultation for Monday afternoon. I advised her of my concern and told her we may have to take action before that. On Monday morning Max didn't show any improvement so I did call the vet on stand-by in the morning and we decided to get Max to the area clinic to find out was was going on. At this point I was worried but not overly concerned. I figured some type of virus or infection that would be treated and he would be home later that night. They decided to keep him overnight to hydrate him and run some tests. Early Tuesday morning at 5 am I was at the clinic so I could visit with Max before heading out to work. He was purring and affectionate. I felt he was doing well. In retrospect that must have been wishful thinking. I went to work but kept in constant contact with both the clinic and the stand-by holistic vet. Around noon time the clinic called me and wanted to do an ultra-sound because Max had pain in his abdomen. I prompty approved that and told them to do whatever had to be done and I would be heading that way. I stopped home to retrieve his previous chest x-rays and went to the clinic. They were just preparing Max for the ultra-sound. I waited for what seemed like an eternity. The doctor came out and invited me to a private room to consult with me. I had a very uneasy feeling about how this was starting to go. He told me that there was such a large mass in Max's abdomen that they couldn't even see his internal organs on the ultra-sound. He went on to state to me that Max is in alot of pain and would not survive surgery. I asked the vet if he was saying we were going to have to euthanize Max in the near future and then I heard the words that will haunt me forever. "I recommend that we euthanize Max sooner rather than later". With those words my whole world had fallen apart. The vet felt it was pancreatic cancer. Totally unrelated to the cancer we already knew about and it was extremely advanced. I sat down in tears and told the vet there is no way I am euthanizing Max tonight. Although he still tried to convince me to do so, I was not going to let Max spend his final night in a clinic. He was coming home with me to sleep in my arms for one more night. I was also in contact with the stand-by holistic vet and she gave me instructions to go to a health food store and purchase a variety of items to give Max throughout night to see if we could reverse the condition. As the night wore on it became terribly obvious that it was going to be a failed effort as Max continued to decline. Finally at midnight I brought Max to my bed and placed him by my side. He rolled on his back to get his belly rubbed and purred in my arms for the rest of the night. Although I did not sleep well at all, I got up early in the morning and went to Church to say some prayers and light a candle hoping against hope for a miracle. The miracle was not to be. I came home and stayed with Max all morning and did my best to comfort him. I looked at every option but I knew deep down inside what was happening here today. I located a facility about 30 miles from home that would cremate Max while I waited. I explained to them over the phone what the situation was and they just asked me to call before coming down there. Just before noon on June 13th I called the clinic and advised them I would be bringing Max in. They were very compassionate and were ready when I arrived. I left Max in a blanket in the car while I signed the papers and paid the bill. I knew I would not be able to take care of that afterwards. I carried Max into the clinic wrapped in the blanket with my tears freely flowing. The vet gave me some time to be with Max and then I called him in. Max died very peacefully with my tears streaming down on his sweet fur at 12:28 pm on June 13, 2007.
I LOVE YOU MAX. I AM SO SORRY.
