A very tough week at the casa de gatos… 19 years was a long time to have had Sylvester in my life and the time came. I wished that it wouldn’t but then I understand that their lives are short and sweet so that we can rescue more cats. Just imagine how many homeless cats (and dogs) there would be if they lived the years of a human life.
I had last weekend off from the shop and spent the time home doing some fall cleaning. I knew that Sylvester was aging, but in the last few months, weeks and days really I saw such a decline in him and realized every night when we had our bed time snuggles that the time was coming very soon when we would have to say goodbye.
Tuesday morning was a very bad morning and it was a painful wait for the vet to open and get an appointment. I knew that he was telling me that he was ready.
I told AlleyCat to say goodbye to her brother as he probably wouldn’t be coming back home.
A painful decision, but one that is made for the love of the cat.
One of my favorite pictures of Sylvester where he shows off his beautiful tuxedo coat and those really long white whiskers. And a gift for me from Nordstrom’s too! What could be better than that?
yes I will get another baby as I have way too much love in my heart for just 1 cat! just not sure when. Watchout AlleyCat…
