This weekend was a bit emotional. One of our cats, Therin (named after Lews Therin Telamon from the Wheel of Time series of books), passed away. While he wasn't ancient for a cat, he was about 13 years old and he had a heart condition. Unfortunately, taking him to the vet would always set his condition off so it was difficult to get any real readings from the ecg machines. Anyway, he had been sick for the past few months. He took a turn for the worse on Thursday. He pretty much stopped eating since nothing would stay down and his breathing was erratic. Of course, we spent a lot of time snuggling with him and trying to feed him via syringe. Sometime Saturday night, he passed into the next world. He will be missed.
