Another lost friend
« on: May 31, 2011, 03:18:52 PM »
Please raise a pint tonight to commerate my lost friend.

Pooka has curled up next to my head on cold nights and kept my houses free of mice (well, whole ones anyway) for the last 13 years. Last night, she decided it was time to move on to more pleasant hunting grounds.

Very sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is. Will hoist a 48 Lattitude, tonight.

Yeah, that's just no damn fun. I'm still in "waves of grief" from my 14 something year old going on this weekend.

Next trip to the tap is for Pooka, RIP friend. My sister is getting ready to say goodbye to her 17 yr. old cat. Tough times..waves of grief indeed. Happy hunting, Pooka...

I feel for you.  I never liked cats at all, but over the past 48 years I've been adopted by a bunch of different cats(as their house slave).  They really do grow on you, more than I ever thought possible.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Thanks all for the kind thoughts and many pints raised. Drew I am sorry to hear about your kitty. I remember when your kitty took ill. It really hit home as I could already see the changes in Pooka's starting. Well maybe they are traveling in good company this day.
