Lucy’s List – March (week 3)

We’re all feeling very sad at Pie Patch HQ this week after the demise of our dear old cat, otherwise known as CrapCat. He’d been poorly for a while and stopped eating. He became ever so thin and had a bad smell about him. I put off taking him to the vet becauae I knew it wasn’t going to be good news. But it was obvious he was suffering and we needed to take care of him the best way we could.

As suspected, his kidneys were failing. They could’ve kept him in and run all sorts of tests on him (which he would’ve hated) but in all likelihood we’d have ended up in the same place. He slept soundly on our sofa with his favourite crocheted blanket all afternoon and then went very quickly and peacefully at the vets. It was the best we could’ve done for him.

Iris is too young to really understand but telling Lily was awful. She was inconsolable. And now they’re both at school and my nest is truly empty for the first time. He was my first baby before my human babies came along and now he’s not here. It sucks. Big time. Farewell, CrapCat.

    My sympathies for you and your family on CrapCat’s demise. They leave a hole in our lives when they are gone being such a part of the family. I hope Lily is doing better now.

    Your Friday dinner gets my vote for the favorites of your meals this week. Love me some lamb chops!

    He looks a handsome cat in the picture you chose. Farewell CrapCat.
