Jimmy Pinkpanther von Barc H., rip

I had to put one of my cats to sleep today. He was very sick. The end was peaceful; I thank God for caring professionals, to use a cliche. He was a difficult cat, always sickly, quite ill-mannered, semi-feral, and had a questionable grasp of potty-training, but he was a warm bed companion in winter, and very loyal to me for having rescued him from a shelter.

He is survived by his roommate Henry Skylark von Barc H., who didn't usually get along with him, and me, who is sad, but glad that he is no longer suffering or frightened.

G'night Jimmy.
