I had a bunch of posts I wanted to do, I have been traveling for work, hanging with husband. Sadly though Ghost had taken a turn for the worst. Yesterday he wouldn’t really get out of his blanket area except to go check out the outside when we opened the kitchen deck door (he hated outside before this apartment).
So yesterday we contacted The Good Life, the same vet that helped him a few weeks ago to have her visit today and help us say goodbye. However, Ghost will do what he wants and he passed away after we went to bed last night.
The hubby has been sweet, he tried to keep me from having to see it or deal with it. I have helped with all our other animals and while it is a lot harder to not cry right now and I appreciated his effort, it was my duty to help.
Goodbye old man cat, Mr. Pinchy, Ghost… We love you very much and I really do hope something like the rainbow bridge exists. Take care.
Prepare to be bombarded with cat pictures. We will get back to my regular thoughts after I can get back to it.
Ghost has always had some weird habits that he must have picked up before we got him. As old as he is, I am sure we have only scratched the surface. I figure I will post randomly when I see him do something that is unusual.
However, the habit I am talking about now is his need to sit on your feet. He has always had a fascination with feet, but if you are on the toilet that is when he is the happiest. He will come shooting over from anywhere else in the apartment and lay down on your feet and start purring. Now, he will do this anywhere we are, but the bathroom, especially on the bathroom rug, is his most perfect place.
I always wonder why that makes him the happiest. What possibly could he have been doing in the past that sitting on my feet while I am sitting on the toilet would be a great thing for him. It is a question for the ages.
