Goodbye to a long-time friend


buddy
Buddy Pal, 1988-2005

You had a huge fan-base, pal, and well deserved.
We'll sure miss your insistent companionship and creaky voice.
Thanks for giving us time to say goodbye...


(He pretty much just gave out. Kidney failure at the end, but essentially a long, slow decline. Only uncomfortable for the last few days, gradually quieter. He just wisped away.)

Gosh, you should have said something tonight---when my cat died, I was disconsolate!

Very sorry to hear it. He was an excellent kitty and had a good long run.

Ave atque vale, Budds.

Aw, honey, I'm so sorry. I understand this kind of loss too well.

Hugs to you, -- B

Thanks guys. He had a good life and a quiet passing, and I had him in my lap a few hours before he went, so I guess I've made my peace, tho' still sad, of course.

MHG -- guess I was appreciating the normalcy and diversion of regular activity, and didn't want to convert that to condolences...

Nice to see all your voices...

I just posted something similar. Our last cat died last month. It is hard. You get used to the little fur monsters. My condolences to you and your family.

He was a great kitty. I'm glad you could give him a good life, and vice versa. --Garett
