I'm sad today. I had to put my cat to sleep yesterday evening. I had my guy for almost 16 years. It's such a difficult thing to do, but I didn't want him suffering any longer. He had some form of cancer that prevented him from absorbing nutrients from his food. He turned his nose up at the sirloin steak and chicken and opted for Friskies as his last meal. It's so hard to lose a pet that's so loved. It was almost exactly a year ago that his companion met with the same fate. She was 18 years old. At least they lived a long life and kept me company all those years. Just another reminder that time everything changes with time and we only get so much. Make it count.
