This little guy weighs in between 4 and 5 pounds and is almost 6 years old. He's always been tiny, since we found him almost dead from a respiratory infection underneath our neighbor's porch. He recovered, but never seemed to grow, or thankfully, lose his adorable kitten face. In June he was diagnosed with chronic renal failure and since then has been on subcutaneous IV treatments a few times a week. He does not LIKE being stuck with a needle and he hates having to sit still for the 10 minutes it takes to run the fluid into him. He shows his displeasure by shredding any skin he can get a hold of, but then afterwards he looks up at us with that cute little face and I just can't stay annoyed with him.
Unfortunately, our little warrior lost his battle with renal failure on May 28, 2010. Never was so enormous a life and personality contained in such a tiny package. The hole he left in our hearts is immense and even more than a year later, still aching. We love you Punkin Munkin and we always will.
