Klondike Kat

Chuck our one-eyed wonder cat crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday [View all]

He was almost 19 years old. The last several years he was on medication for hyperthyroidism. Even though he ate a great deal he was just skin and bones and was having a hard time getting around.

It felt strange not having a furry alarm clock to wake me up this morning.

For the first time in over 20 years we are without a cat in the house. I'm not certain how I feel about that.

I'd post a photo of Chuck, but I don't know how to insert it.
