Scooby's final day

The Grim Reaper has made another appointment with our family. First, he took my daughter's dog Nemesis, then my son's dog King, then my beloved cat Bob and I haven't seen Alucard, my other cat, in months and I fear the worst. Scooby, my son's pet chihuahua / dachshund mix has a tumor in his jaw and his pain has reached the point where eating is intensely painful.

My daughter in law, Samantha, has made the arrangements for Scooby to go to his last visit to the vet.

Now it means we have my two "cats on loan" and my son's dog Aiser left. Kimari is a cat that belongs to my daughter, Cynthia, and when she settles into a place that can handle cats, he's going home, and Amaya who my friend Dee left with me since she's going back to Indonesia and there's a chance Amaya is going with Dee.

I know pets aren't forever, still, like my kids, they are only with me for a while and then their paths diverge from mine.

Here's to travelling my own path in life...

I am sorry to hear that. Take care.

Is all well with you?
We haven't heard from you in quite a while; are you well?

I had a similar loss at about the same time -- last Oct, my late sister's cat, who had made a point of adopting me well before my sister's death, passed from old age. I have a couple of half-feral kittens now -- they have yet to decide that they trust me.

I seriously hope all is well with you.
