Yesterday was a very sad day. We had to put our cat Max down. He was an amazing, wonderful, and loving cat. It was just his time; he was 18. He was as sweet as always, right to the end… hanging out in the backyard with Jerry, and giving head buts and purring. I am blessed to have loved him and we are blessed to have been loved by him. It is sad to see his empty bed… Our dog Cooper and young cat Sam both seem to miss him, both acting a bit off. I know this feeling of sadness will get better with time but it is very hard right now, especially not seeing him greet me when I come home from work… Max left quite a footprint on our hearts.
