One cat, a chihuahua, and a turtle

After a sudden decline, our cat Einstein had to be put to sleep after fifteen years.  He had been stable but slow-moving for months.  Last week, soon after a slight change in his meds, he hit a hard enough bump in the road that he just stopped eating.

Deciding how long to give him before letting him go was an awfully hard decision.  This cat has been with Fay through multiple life phases.  We wanted to give him every chance possible, but not to draw things out and make him miserable.  We did our best.

Here he is playing with the baby cat:



Here he is concentrating on something he heard outside:


Bye bye, kittie.  Our place is emptier now.

Awww :-\ Kitteh.

Sorry to hear about Einstein. That's a good goal, not making him miserable, though. He probably would have appreciated, if you could have explained :)
