Sorry I haven't been around on the A to Z this week (if you are looking for my A to Z post for today, it's here), but my cat, Ythran, has been ill since Sunday, and today we had to say goodbye to him. He was a great cat, an adventurer in his younger days, which did get him into trouble. He only had three legs and 1/3 of his tail due to scrapes he got himself into, but he lived a long and happy life despite his disability.
I'm going to miss him terribly - the house will be a lot quieter without his foghorn-strength demands for attention and food, and I won't have a friend to sit on my lap and miaow at me when I'm not stroking him enough.
So, Ythran, my darling cat, goodbye and I love you.
