Long time no see. Sorry for the recent lack of updates, but life has been a real whirlwind for us lately. We recently moved into a bigger/nicer place, and to update the Kitty Chronicles, all the kitties (and Ozzy!) have been getting along wonderfully. No more separating the cats to avoid rage-fueled mini-tornadoes of fur and teeth and claws. 🙂

Unfortunately, with this good news comes some hard news. Jack, our resident senior kitty, isn’t going to be with us for much longer. The vet told us he didn’t have much time left, and for us to watch for a decline in his quality of life, and unfortunately that time has come. We made a difficult (but what we view as the most humane) decision, and have made an appointment with the vet to have him peacefully put to sleep. He will be missed dearly, and things just won’t be the same without him.

It has been a very emotional process, but today as I broke down, I had two fuzzy friends to help lift my spirits. I was sitting on the floor and just started sobbing when Ozzy and Bailey quickly took notice. Ozzy was immediately at my side, resting his paw on my leg and offering comfort. Bailey slid under the kitchen chairs a moment later and joined me at my other side. They both stayed with me until I had finished crying and pulled myself together, and even then Ozzy wouldn’t budge until he was 100% sure I was alright. It was such a sweet moment, and honestly at that point in time, I don’t think anything else could have cheered me up more. It really goes to show that sometimes you don’t need to say anything to comfort someone, you just have to be there.
