We are sad.
Even though many good things are perking for me and the fam, we just lost a core and beloved member. Our big, senior tomcat called “Fatman” died on Tuesday morning. We buried him near our sweet bulldog Choco, but are finding it hard not to be downcast by his absence. I want to remember his grace in the face of torment-y little dogs, and a bit of a kook of a brother. You can tell by his expression that he had a lot to put up with, but he did it with grace for sure.
He had had a heart murmur for a long time, and I am sure a diet would have been good for him. But he ate with gusto, and we found it hard to deprive him – thus Fatman.
I loved getting to relax vicariously through him.
We miss you Fatman!
