I feel for your loss. I lost three out of four last year ... two were to old age (13 and 15) but the 11yo was due to her stubborn cussedness. She died doing something she loved: destroying something of ours while in the process of misbehaving. I found her body the morning we drove up to pick up a gift car from BiL. Triumph and tragedy rolled up into one. We call it "living life uncensored" and the wheel keeps turning. It has been a cold winter without my pile of kitties on me ... but this made it easier to become acquainted with the youngest one, who previously stuck to hubby like glue (and I assumed the older ones guarded me jealously). $150 for one game of golf ... I can't help but wonder how many chick tractors I could put on a golf course.
