A Sad Good-bye

No pictures today I'm afraid. Instead, just sad news to report. One of my friends and colleagues lost her beloved pet today. His name was Thatcher and he was a great cat. He was just three months shy of turning 19 years old. I was at the vet's office with her as she said goodbye while cradling him as he breathed his last breath. He was much loved and will be greatly missed.

I had the same experience with one of my dogs. There's no good way to talk about that.

Swampy-Please pass along to your friend my thoughts in her time of sorrow. I too know how it is to lose a pet as you well know about Travis. You might want to share with her the joy I am receiving a year later from the teenager I adopted over the summer. Everyday I have fond memories of Travis and enjoy new memories with Slyvester.

Let her know my thoughts and prayers are with her. I feel her loss. I lost my 27 yr old horse on New Years Day...had to put him down due to complications from colic. At least she was there with him, and got to say her goodbye's. Cherish the memories.

I'm sorry at the loss. But, remember the Rainbow Bridge.
