There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

Sad to say, we lost Sherman, our second-oldest cat, today.

He'd been diagnosed with diabetes a few months ago, and regardless of how much insulin we gave him, he didn't do well. The vet palpated him today, and discovered a mass near his pancreas. I was at work, so Mary, bless her, made the decision and told me about it when I called to let her know that I was on my way home.

Sherman was very special. I remember calling home from the Raleigh airport 13 years ago, and Mary pleading with me not to kill her. I had no idea what she was talking about, so she told me that she had adopted a kitten. We had no idea what to call him, so we watched him for a few days, and noticed he marched around the house like a little general. Thus, Sherman. He was part Siamese, solid black (as you can see), talkative and formed a very special bond with Mary.

See you at the bridge, Sherman.

Condolences to both you and Mary, John. Sherman was a lucky kitty to have you as parents. I'm sure he had as good a life as any kitty could have.

Oh, John, I'm so sorry. Of course Mary did the best thing for Sherman, but that doesn't take away the hurt.

Leona (my kitty) and I both send hugs to you and Mary.
