Friday was a Suck@$$ day

The doodle should explain why.

He came into my life on his own terms, and he left a day earlier than I planned to...sort of on his own terms. We still had to take him to the vet for the Final Goodbye, but we were going to do it Saturday, not Friday. He always liked throwing us off, dammit. But he was the consummate cat.

All in all, he was a tough little bastard who went through a LOT, but it was comforting to hear from the folks at the vet's that they thought I did good by him.

I miss him.

A lot.

Tara - That is so sad. I feel for you. Personally, I generally get so much more connected to my animal friends than to my human ones. Buck up little camper, at least he is at peace now.

And thanks for still coming to our game! Your support was much appreciated.

I am so sorry to hear this. And yes, you did the right thing. Gods speed Lardo!

Damn it.

We always miss these cute little fuckers when they go. Especially the fighters.

*salute* Lardo

Thanks, y'all.

Oh, Tara,
I am so so so very sorry to hear this. Losing a pet is heartbreaking, and I hope you're taking care of yourself and treating yourself nice (or drinking). Let me know if there's anything I can somehow do.

Eternal rest unto Lardo. Sorry for your loss. I hope you feel better soon.

I'm so sorry. But he's not hurting any more. They leave such a hole in our lives, don't they? I lost my Rudy in May after 17 1/2 years and I still miss him bossing me around.

I've come to the conclusion that generally cats are indeed better than people.

Oh Tara, I managed to miss this post until today.

I am so so sorry. Mmmmmm Foooood indeed.
