Saying Goodbye

We all deal with this eventually. By coincidence, I just learned this morning that Pepe the tuxedo cat, one of my neighbor’s kitties, died. She had him from two weeks old (his mother was run over by a car), and I believe she said he was 19 years old art death. He was a beautiful kitty, a sweet-natured and well-behaved kitty. He made a little appearance in this video:


Saying Goodbye, Euthanasia, or “putting a pet to sleep”, is one of the hardest decisions we ever have to make as pet owners. In the seemingly short time that they spend in our lives our pets become much loved and cherished companions; they are part of our family and for some people they are a best friend, so saying goodbye is always going to be a really hard thing to do.
Most of us fear the day when our pets just cannot go on any longer and we hope that when they do die, they will pass away peacefully in their sleep, in their own bed and in their own home, but sadly for many of us this does not happen and, in these cases, euthanasia is the kindest thing that we can do for our pet to prevent unnecessary suffering and pain.

Post 1354: a quiet day at the front door…

It was cool today, but I opened the door so the kitty boys could enjoy a little door fun.


Dougy stops by after he hears the door opening.

Andy greets Dougy and they absorb the exciting things at the door.


“Hello, Dougy!” “…and to you, too, brother!”

This bit of debris tracked in on my shoes especially interested the kitty boys!

Andy had kitty business to do, but Dougy watched out the door for a bit longer.

Dougy is vigilent.

Dougy decided this is more comfortable.
