Rest in peace, sweet Anke Akevit. You were a sweet cat.
Sigrid was sweet, fun, goofy, curious; all the usual cat things. Silky and beautiful. By far the most beautiful cat I have ever known.
Tonight’s Kaddish is for my friends Eric and Jody’s beloved cat Xena, a beautiful tortoiseshell who had to be put down after she began losing the battle with lung cancer.
Somebody’s cat had died. I can’t remember whose. I’m appalled.
I’ve been thinking about departed critters a lot lately, because I’ve been at the vet a lot lately.
A modest Kaddish for a modest cat. Lyra, may you rest in peace.
It’s a lesson I have to relearn each time: the hardest thing is the sudden deprivation of rituals. This is the last time Fuller will ever be on my lap. Friday was the last time Fuller played with his favorite catnip mouse. One minute he’s here, the next he’s gone.
