Drea‘s cat got put to sleep. She was only a kitten earlier this year. Something injured her and she was becoming paralyzed. It reminded me of my rabbit Tchaikovsky who suffered a similar fate. This reminds me of one of the many reasons I don’t like owning pets. When I was young, I had pet bantams, khaki camels (ducks), mallards, geese, ferrets, fish, dogs, cats, parakeets, rabbits and parents and I lost them all.
