Our wonderful, old cat left this world yesterday. He has been slowly fading over the past few months starting with ringworm, then to arthritis and spondylosis, and finally cancer. He's been with us for thirteen years, having been handed down by my friend Ed. We've been reminiscing a lot. Poor guy. Hopefully his sister, Josie, greeted him kindly instead of hissing as she was prone to do in the last few years.
