Dropcloth the Cat RIP

My "studio cat" Dropcloth (or DC for short) passed away last night. He had had surgery to remove some teeth earlier in the day, and after I picked him up he seemed to be recovering. But a few hours later, he was acting oddly. I called my sister, who had worked as a vet tech. Thanks, Penny, for all your help. We took him to the emergency vet's.

He died last night just before 11pm. The cause was cardiac arrest.

Nine years ago, he just appeared in the woods of our house. He followed me everywhere. He had "chosen" me and I was honored. I called him Dropcloth because he had white blotches here and there on his tiger-stripe back.

I am glad he was given a loving home. I am devastated at this loss.

My condolences. It is always sad to lose these friends who are with us for too short a time.

May all the wonderful memories be a cushion against the sharp pain off loss.

So sorry to hear that. Losing a pet is devastating.
