Beyond sad

My (our) oldest cat has been diagnosed with a throat tumor. The vet just called and she believes it is pretty much inoperable. We do not know at this stage, how much longer he has left.

All I know is that I cannot stop sobbing. To make matters worse, I cannot access the home server to at least post of a photo of him. His name is Jungle. He has been my husband’s companion for the past decade and a half. A few months after my husband adopted him I entered their lives and I don’t know how to put this into words without sounding cheesy (and actually making sense), but he represents the idea of home to me. He was the first living thing (aside from my then boyfriend, now husband), who made me feel at home here in NL. The thought of losing him makes me so sad.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
