Goodnight, Beaver.

Nine lives.

Thirteen some odd years.

And boy did he live them out to their fullest.

It's with sadness that we said goodnight to our beloved cat last night. We recently noticed a severe weight loss and shift in his eating, so a trip to the vet confirmed kidney and liver failure. We attempted to rehydrate with an IV but by the next day, it was evident, his time with us was coming to an end. We're sad to let him go, as he has been with Nick longer than we've been dating/married and this cat has seen some things, yo. Coon fights, crow attacks, long naps in the bushes, a move to China for his retirement years....he's done it all. We will miss him.

As Sal would say, "nite nite titty".

May his pain and suffering be over.

  1. Ouch! Being a "Mom" of a Calico kitty myself, I completely understand the pain you, Nick and Sal are suffering through right now. "Funny" I was commenting on your very last post with elation ... new life is beginning ... and now the opposite could not be more true. We certainly are reminded of the circle of life with your 2 most recent posts, and I wish you comfort as you find your way through this mixed bag of emotions. Take care of yourself and your beautiful family! xoxo, Karen
