Me: shadow against sand under ripples
plumtreeblossom's sweet cat Ben Ben died this evening. We'd spent all weekend together, and Sunday after a concert and dinner in Harvard Square I went to Quincy and she went to Somerville. When she got home she found him blind and unable to stand. While I was trying to work out cab and Zipcar arrangements to get to Davis quickly and get him to Angell, he died in her arms. He was an old cat and had a wonderful run and died at home, and he was begging for treats and enjoying life until the last few hours. He had been in notable decline, though, so it wasn't a suprise.

(We took the body to Angell for cremation. It's a wonderful, wonderful animal hospital run by wonderful kind caring people and we're very lucky to live somewhere where that kind of veterinary care is available 24/7/365.)

Goodbye, Ben!

*hugs* That sounds like a cat who had love and attention for his entire life - please pass on a hug from me.

I'm so sorry. I know how hard it is to lose a loved pet.

I'm sorry for your loss. It sounds like he had a good and long life, though, and I'm hoping that's some comfort.

*hug*

I'm sorry to hear this. :( Sounds very much like when my Pawla-cat went a few years ago, although it sounds like Ben Ben got out of it more quickly, which is good.
