I have always been a cat lover and have rarely been without at least one, though I've never had more than two at the same time. So, I can really sympathise with what you've been going through with yours - and although it's so sad in parts, I did enjoy reading your story. I do hope that dear Raoul's remaining days will be peaceful and that you will have Angelo and Pixie for a long time yet:) Our one remaining cat, Beatrice, is 17 now - she seems to be getting more human the older she becomes!! When she has gone, I really don't think I will ever have any more - for me the upset of parting has just become too much.

ust wanted you “regulars” to know that my LotR ship (with Frodo as captain) hasn’t foundered or anything like that

Very happy to know that:)

Beatrice is seventeen? She may live a long time still. I've met cats that are more than twenty. I am sure Raoul would have lived at least another few years if hadn't got cancer. His blood work showed that his kidney function was excellent, he had no diabetes or any of the chronic ailments that plague seniors. Your Beatrice sounds like a lovely cat, in any case. "Getting more human the older she becomes" - I know! I know!

When she has gone, I really don't think I will ever have any more - for me the upset of parting has just become too much.

We are sort of thinking that, too, Not Alone. Our daughter asked if we will be getting a cat to keep Angelo company, but I said that at least for now, we'd probably been through enough, if only financially. Not that their care has been outrageously expensive, or even unusual coming over the life of a cat; but coming to all three, all at once, it has been a burden. But the emotional thing is a factor, too. Both my husband and I have been tried by this. I didn't mention him much but my husband adores the cats, too. I am thinking that after Angelo gets over the transition to being the only cat, he will learn to adjust. Perhaps he will even prefer it, receiving the undivided, fawning attention of two devoted humans. *g*
