test results came in this morning showing that my friend Toes the Cat had cancer. it was present on several of his organs and certainly terminal. instead of trying to extend his life and bring more pain, suffering and humiliating treatments into his life, we had him humanely euthanized. he fell gently asleep for the last time about half an hour ago.
he was a good friend and the most cuddly cat i've ever known. he would tuck himself under your arm and sleep pressed up next to you on his side all night if you let him (which we often did). he was full of attitude and energy when he was healthy and a light in all our lives.
