Tough weekend. Kid throwing up repeatedly during a visit to grandma's house, and super large thunderstorm at said house to keep us awake at night as well. On top of that, Henry the cat, we found out, had a brain tumor that was causing him pain. He had to be put down.
This was my first cat ever. I really didn't like cats, but agreed to allow one after my kids and wife pleaded to get one. We got him from the humane society. He was with us for less than five years. They said he was around six when we got him. The vets confirm he was not an "old" cat.
What a wonderful guy. He never scratched or bit anyone, just wanted to be cuddled up with the nearest person, and be warm. I really got to like him because he was such a friendly guy. I will miss him.
We will get a kitten for sure after our vacation in August. In the meantime, I will raise a glass of my finest amber to Hanko tonight. Godspeed, friend.
