Unfortunately, I had to take my cat to the vet and have it put to sleep. He had kidney failure and there was nothing that could be done. He had lost a lot of weight and could hardly move around anymore. His name was "Z." He was a cool cat. I got him in October of 1991 (along with a black cat that I named "Midnight" ) when I was at Georgia Tech finishing my Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering.
Today has been a somewhat sad day.
