REQUIES-CAT IN PACE
It is my sad duty to announce the passing of Pishalou, Elder Daughter’s boyfriend’s family’s cat, at the advanced age of 19.
Some of my Esteemed Readers may remember Pishalou, a fearsome-looking kitty whose horrific appearance detracted not one whit from her family’s love for her. Her looks were earned honorably, the result of advanced age...helped along by a kidney condition for which she was under a veterinarian’s care.
Pishalou expired peacefully in her sleep. Not for her the heartwrenching Final Trip to the veterinarian’s office; not for her the Needle-Borne Quietus. To pass away in one’s sleep is the kiss of God, a gift all too rarely bestowed on our animal companions.
Our condolences to Pishalou’s human friends. To Pishalou, ave atque vale. We hardly knew ye, kitty...
