a sad goodbye

I've been putting this off, but I guess it's time to tell. Our little kitten, Wasi, didn't make it. It's been about a week since the vet called to let us know that they had to put him down. His seizures just kept getting worse and worse, so it really was for the best. Allowing an animal to continue suffering is cruel.

We didn't get to know Wasi very well, but enough to fall in love with him, so it hurts a lot. The vet put him in a little box and we brought him home for burial on what we now refer to as "boot hill", which is out in our east pasture. Art made a little grave and secured it from any animals that may try to dig it up. Rest in peace little boy. I guess you weren't meant to be here just yet.

This is the last picture I took of him, having a snooze.

oh. oh. so sad for you. Poor little kitty. But you did the right thing for him.

Poor Wasi. But I know how that feels. I think you did the right thing, too. He couldn't ask for a nicer place to be buried.
