R.I.P TanQueray

Posted by Timo |

I just realized that I still have readers here ( shock? who knew?) that may not see my facebook or tweets. I put my best bud of the last 15+ years to sleep about 3 weeks ago. She had multiple health issues this year but always pulled through - but she had been going down hill the last few months. In retrospect, I was either blind or lying to myself that she was fine and it finally took my vet to point blank tell me that I was no longer doing her any favours by keeping her alive and she was suffering and merely putting on a show for me at that point.

Cheesy as it may sound, it was an awful decision for me to make and the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I spent a couple days of quality time with her and made sure her last day was a happy one for her. two of my best friends were with me when I took her to the vet ( wed, the 30th, 5:30 pm ) and the event itself was shockingly calm and peaceful. We buried her in my best friend's back yard with some of her favorite toys. I'm having a hard time being in my apartment without her and I keep hearing little phantom TanQ noises.

Here's to the cat I never wanted but quickly grew to love more than anything.
She is sorely missed.
