    My condolences John.
    And never listen to people who say, “It was just a cat.” Or a dog. Or any pet that you love. Who or what we chose to love is all that is important.

    Many years ago i had to take a cat who had been with me for years in to be euthanised. He was fading fast from what appeared to be pancreas failure.

    Afterward, talking about it on rec.arts.sf-fandom, i mused “They give us so much and they ask so little in return – just a piece of your soul.”
