Personal Note

I hope it’s OK to get a little personal and tell you that, very sadly, this past week I had to say goodbye to a really wonderful best friend. A best friend who in 2008 made it to First Draft … with a little help from Photoshop. No way would he have sat quietly with ANYTHING near his front paws, much less something that could be clawed or attacked 🙂

From Album 5

This was Tigger.

To keep this short, I’ll just note that while it’s a terribly sad time around here, I’m also trying to keep in mind that I got very, very lucky getting to share my house with this little guy. If you’re so inclined, warm thoughts and/or prayers for him would be most appreciated. He sure was a good boy.

    So sorry for your loss, mon ami. I know how much you loved your kitty. Who will run your life now? Again, condolences from Dr A and me.

  2. Snarki, child of Loki says:

    All cats go to Valhalla, where the sun makes nice warm spots for snoozing, and the mice are fat and slow. Condolences to you; hold the memories of your time together.

    A fine figure of a cat! I try to tell myself that cats and dogs live shorter lives so that I can adopt more of them, but I can’t say that it ever lessens the grief. So sorry for the loss of your friend.

    So very hard when we lose them. He was gorgeous. So very sorry for your loss.

    Thanks y’all, and a second thanks, Adrastos.

    I’d posted a similar memorial on Facebook, but he was a good enough fella to merit mention here, too. I used to think we were there for them, but now I think they’re there for us. And I couldn’t have gotten luckier for the time I got to be with him…
