We had to say bye to the boy cat on Nov 1. It was so sad. The vet came to us and it was very peaceful. We had been sitting cozy on the couch all afternoon and that is where he stayed. and then left. The girl cat seems ok, but we have been giving her lots of attention and she gets to sleep with us. Everything reminds me of the boy cat. I can leave my socks out now because he is not here to steal them and I don't have to put away rubber bands or the oven mitts because he is not here to eat them. He is not here to touch noses while I work on the computer or meow to be picked up after I brush my teeth. Girl cat feels extra soft and cuddly because there is only one.
Here they are when they were babies, boy cat is the one smiling. They have been together since day one and I hope girl cat manages ok. I will leave the radio on for her when we go out to keep her company. Paul wrote the sweetest little tribute on his blog yesterday. Here is the flickr photoset of them.
