This week I had to say goodbye to one of my favorite scrappy cats. My Rocket J, whose picture serves as my avatar, had become ill and I had to have him put to sleep. He was 14 or 15 years old and had lost weight, stopped cleaning himself and then suddenly loss the use of his back legs. I hate hate hate making the decision to have an animal put to sleep but his quality of life was at stake here and he was so pitiful. The vet said his heart was just wore out. Didn’t give me a clue about what was failing but I figured it was old age. They were very nice at the vet and even sent me flowers. I took off Tuesday and had it done then drove to my mom’s which is 25 miles away and my brother buried him on my mom’s property where all our animals are buried.
Rest in Peace Little Kitten. I will miss you.
