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.
