Fare Thee Well, Captain


After a brief bout with a blood clot in his leg, The Captain was put mercifully to rest this morning. He was 12 years old. He loved to eat, sleep, sleep, eat, eat and rub up against people's legs. He was really big and a glutton for attention and petting. He was a good cat, and we loved him.
Fare thee well, Captain. You will be missed.

So sorry about your cat. We just put down our dog down a couple of months ago and it is heartbreaking. A pet's absence in a home is palatable and only time can make things a little bit better.

I'm sorry to hear this. The picture brought me up short; our most recent cat looked exactly, but exactly, like yours.

Thanks everyone for your kindness. It feels a little weird to be posting to this blog without 16 lbs. of orange cat purring around my ankles.

My condolences.

We've got a ginger tom too and I know how strong an attachment can be formed.
