A sad one this time: Pitty Pet is no longer with us.
Pitty Pet was our old cat. Very old. He was adopted at a shelter and his exact age was unknown, but the MiL was guessing around 18 years. He had been slowly failing for some time and then he just stopped eating. So he has been sent to his reward and suitably interred in the burial grounds in the ram pasture.
So good-bye to Pitty Pet. It was a long, good road for Pitty, but he had most definitely reached its end.
