goodbye, Kitty

Kitty didn’t make it.

This morning, I got the call from the nurse that he wasn’t doing better, then the call from the doctor that he was in fact doing much worse. He was non-responsive to the drug given for congestive heart failure, which is really the last step.

For 11 years, Kitty was my most consistent and reliable companion, and in a weird but related way, my best friend. The end came fast, and was as painless and comfortable as possible under the circumstances.

I miss him in a way that “pet” doesn’t begin to cover.
