It’s really tough losing a pet.

Underpants was the first cat I ever had. She was a part of my life for 14 years — dating back to the first marriage (one of the few things that still brings back crystal clear memories) — and the primary reason I became a vegetarian.

She was an awesome cat, and had experienced a bit of a renaissance this past summer. She returned to her outdoor ways and had gained a step or two bounding up and down the stairs when before she slowly sauntered. 

Cancer caught her. She ended up with an incredibly fast-growing tumor in her jaw that appeared over the past 6 weeks. We found out on Friday and took her in today for the final time. She passed as she purred on my lap.

I buried her out back.

It’s been a brutal couple of days for us. The boys are all upset, but they’re resilient. 

Goodbye, girl. You’ll be missed.
