I has a sad today. :( I had one yesterday, too, the one-week anniversary of Stanley's passing. I miss that little munchkin.
Captain and Baxter are picking up the slack. At least one of them has
attempted to accompany me into the bathroom nearly every morning this
week, which Stanley always used to do.
Baxter has been searching
for Stanley, sniffing around and trying to wedge himself behind
furniture (which is behavior he never engaged in before). Captain hasn't
gone in search of his brother yet. I
think he hasn't fully grasped that Stanley isn't coming back. I don't
look forward to that realization dawning on him. :(
I know there was no alternative to granting the Final Act of Mercy. Not
with those x-rays showing metastatic cancer all over his lungs (and the
vet believed it was probably on the other organs as well, which the
x-ray wouldn't have shown). But wow, one little kitty can leave such a
huge vacant spot behind. Hence, I has a sad. :(
