Damn

Dec 31st, 2005

One of my cats, Peppy, died about 45 minutes ago. My brother heard him making ‘whiny’ sounds and found him on the landing, almost immediately realising something wasn’t quite right. I arrived to hear a faint whine/meow with the last breath.
None of use realy suspected it. We knew he had a bad heart, he was on asprin, and he was also overweight, and although attempts at putting on a diet were working it was difficult when you have two cats. Still, he hadn’t given any sign of particulalry ill health recently, and wasn’t very old.
So the new year is even more subdued than I expected. My parents have come home and the few of my brother’s friends that had arrived have moved off elsewhere.
But to the rest of you, hope your new year is better than mine
