booger's last day


Booger is not quite 15 years old. The friendliest of all my cats, the first to greet any stranger that enters the house, the most persistent lap cat I ever had, Booger unaccountably does not wish to be held at all in his final days.

In a perfect world I would have spared him the pain of the last two days, but my regular vet left town on vacation with no back up. I have located a vet, someone I knew years ago, a hour and a half away, who is willing to ease Booger on his way. Soon we will leave on Booger's final trip to a vet.

I am thinking of you, Sue. Pets are loved ones who provide more comfort than most relatives.

Thank you, all. Booger now sleeps peacefully under the shade of the pine trees.

Sue, I am so sorry. That is a hard decision to have to make.

Oh Sue, I am so sorry to read this post. Your dear kitty had a wonderful meowmie all these years, that's a gift to any pet. May the other side be full of sunshine and happy days for your lovely pal.

Hugs, G
