There are no words. I just don't know what to say.

In the light of this far more serious tragedy, I feel strange posting this, but I thought you all might be interested in the follow-up of what I posted earlier on a different topic.

Now I offer him in addition a variety of anything from the small "gourmet" canned foods to tuna fish in order to encourage him. And the weaker he gets, the more dependent upon me he becomes. I used to scold him because when I walked in the house, the dogs were all over me, but he would always go straight to the kitchen and begin demanding to be fed before showing any affection. Now he just wants to stay in my lap all the time. He's lost so much weight that petting him is like petting a skeleton. Poor old guy. They really can get under your skin, despite your best intentions....
Two nights ago, I saw Christian get up off the bed and into a clothes basket. That's where I found him yesterday morning. He was a good cat. Here's a Christmas picture of him and his best friend Cain, whom he out-lived by several years.
