Farewell to my pal...
« on: October 14, 2011, 10:01:48 AM »
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.  :'(

sorry to hear that man, losing a pet is not easy, putting my 16 yr old dog down when i was back in high school was one of the worst days of my life, hang in there.

Oh man, that sucks!!!   It never gets any easier it seems. Every day with our pets just adds to the grief when it happens. Take care & savor the memories!!  I'll hoist a pint in BB's memory tonight. Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Bummer Ron, sorry to hear that.  Maybe brew a RIS to honor the black cat?  Or BB Baltic Porter?

I feel for you Ron.  My condolences.  I have a special place in my heart for black cats.  Your picture of BB in the chimney is one of my all time favorites.

There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.

My condolences Ron, I'll raise a pint of something black tonight.

I'm so sorry Ron.  Often times, pets are better people than people are.

Sorry to hear - I'll raise a pint for BB tonight. That pic of BB in the chiminea made me literally laugh out loud - though in real life I probably would have jumped out of my skin.  Thanks for sharing.
