Endymion

He was  severely anemic and jaundiced yesterday at the vet, and although the jaundice seems to have diminished, he still seems very, very tired.

But he did decide to hang around long enough for his mom to get back here and kiss his big head.

Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers. We’d rather him around forever, but not if he’s suffering, so we’ll see what shitty decisions we’ll have to make, or not.

(This is one of my favorites of the big goober, taken back in Brooklyn.)

    You’re shared so much about him, with such unabashed love, I feel like I’ve had in my lap before.

    I’ve been through this more times than I care to remember and I know how tough it is, and exactly how shitty those decisions are. They are members of the family who put their love and trust in us, and it’s so hard to be there when their time comes to leave this grand illusion.

    My heart goes out to all of you.

    Hugs for both of you. There’s nothing easy about losing a cat.
