Sadly, we had to put down our cat. She was 19 years and 4 months old- making her about 94 human years old. Yes, we've had her for a very, very long time. I realize with all the horrors in this world, the loss of our pet isn't the biggest issue for readers here. However, it hurts. A lot.
Pets have a way of stealing one's heart without you knowing it's being done.
