    Thanks for the well-wishes, all.
    Hemi is still resting comfortably. Still drinking a bit, but wont eat at all.
    Not my first time up this road, but it seems the hardest.
    All our cats have been special, but Hemi... he's one of a kind. A philosopher king.
    Contemplating the road ahead...
    The grand old man is taking his ease, waiting for what comes next. 20201129_174916.jpg

    I'm really sorry to hear about Hemi and I know how it feels to lose a pet...especially a cat.:( On a more positive note I think Hemi had a real good life with you.:) My beloved Morris who is also an orange tabby passed away at the age of 19. It was on September 12, 2014...an extremely sad day in my life. I had him cremated so I can take him anywhere I go. He will always be in my heart.:)

    So sorry. They're family members and losing them can be every bit as hard as losing a human that is close to us.

    Hemingway has left this reality for the next.

    Thanks again to all who wished him well. He went with dignity, loved by all who knew him.

    I hope I do so well at the end.

    He went peacefully and with his best friend. Yeah, sign me up for that ending as well.


    My condolences to you.

    Dignity and love is about the best we can hope for. Thanks for giving him those things.

    Sorry for your loss.

    How I will prefer to remember him, in his prime, with the missus.

    What a big and beautiful looking cat he is, so sorry this has to happen. Been through this myself way to many times, it hurts everyday. Bless him.
