With Beginnings Come Endings

Yesterday, on the second day of this New Year, I had to say goodbye to my beautiful boy, my sweet Ceasar.

As heartbreaking as it is, it was the best and right thing to do for him. He was 14 & a half years old and had cancer. We found out on 12/14, but he was doing well despite it, especially once his upper respiratory infection cleared up. We didn't know how much time we had but we were glad to have more with him. And then throughout New Years Eve day, he began to decline and it continued throughout New Years Day. I knew the signs, I'd been through it before with my other boys. (Except one which passed on his own).

My last boy. The last of my first kitties. All gone. I just can't believe it. My heart is heavy and sad.

I am thankful I have my girl kitties. I can't imagine how awful it would be to come home to an empty house. Between my unpredictable health and being home so much, they are such comforting companions!

Oh but how I will miss my beautiful boy...
