A Bad Afternoon

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.

We just went through this last month with one of our 4 dogs. She was 7 and developed Bloat overnite and died within 2 hours of us noticing the symptons. My heart goes out to you and your family. It gets a little easier each day, but it is tough as you have lost a family member. We got her ashes last week and now she is back home with us :-)
