A sorrowful parting with our cat Spot

Posted in Musings on August 14, 2009 by xxxicana

Yesterday our cat, Spot, passed through the barrier between this and the nether worlds.  Unfortunately, Spot had chronic liver malfunction due to his advanced age (15 years).  I was lucky to be Spot’s adopted mother for about 7 years — but many people loved and cared for Spot over the course of his long life.  Spot’s “real” mom, my sister Shelly and her family are surely missing their little cat.  Larisa, Tom, my parents, and many friends and neighbors all cared for this naughty whiny cat . . . he had a way of endearing himself to everyone.  Here are a few pictures of Spot:

Our last hours together, Spot and I spent snuggling in my chair.

Tom and I miss our little weasle cat so much.

Dear Spot, Rest in Peace
