Right now, I’m not capable of much more than saying what happened.
Eventually, I’ll get a proper tribute together, something worthy of the unique and wonderful cat that Arthur was. As it is, I can barely cope with the knowledge that he is gone.
He made it several months past the dire diagnosis of kidney disease, but in the end, not even his strong will and determination to be there for me could overcome the physical toll of age and sickness.
We said goodbye to Arthur yesterday.
Nothing feels right and nothing is the same, but it shouldn’t be. He was too great a cat not to make this much difference in my life.
