My thoughts are with you. I know how hard that is.

Those phone calls are very hard to take.  That was one really black cat.  If he was a people loving cat, it just makes it harder.

I'll be sure to raise a pint to you and your friend. Later tonight of course. Cherish the memories.

Oh I'm so sorry. My sincere condolences. The day my first cat died was one of the worst in my life. Hang in there.

My wife called me last night while I was attending my homebrewclub meeting. It was a call I had hoped not to receive. My 6 year old cat "BB" has passed on from some strain of feline leukemia. He was a great foot warmer and loved people. He will be missed.  :'(



He is beautiful.  Love the Chimenea.  Thanks for giving him a beautiful life!

Ron, I opened a bottle of Treat from Midnight Sun in his memory tonight.  The beer was great while it lasted.   :(

Thanks again guys. It's a tough loss...that little black furry devil will always be remembered. I buried him on my property. I laid a nice stone on his grave. He was a real pal...I'll tell ya.  :(

Ron,

I'm so sorry for you loss. I have a feline friend who looks just like him and I know how I would feel losing him. I will raise a pint and hold shadow a bit closer to me for the next couple days.

Condolences.

Sorry for your loss Ron.  I'll raise a pint of RIS to BB tonight.  I'll be sure to give my 4-legged children a hug when I get home.
