Today i had to take my cat Tigger to be put down. i got tigger while pregnant with my daughter aj. He as nice for a few months and then not so much after that. I always said that he never loved me right. He had ben sick for a bit which is not surprising since he was 15 years old. A better person might have put him down a few months ago. I just could not put him down during the pregnancy from hell-the baby is an outright gift from God. So last night at 9:30 it became obvious it could no longer be put off. This morning he was loaded in the car and taken to be put out of his misery. I suspect it will take a few days for it to sink in. I had said a few times recently that it will be a relief because he was rather annoying and the wet food he needed had gotten a bit steep. But i do not feel relieved today. Out of sorts and rather off might be a better description.
I went to the mall and was not even in the mood to shop. Maybe that was guilt over how much my glasses cost. But i expect i will miss the old cat more then i thought. aj seems to be ok today. She got upset and said goodbye last night. Maybe i did need to say bye this morning. I had more thoughts for today, but a cranky baby says otherwise.
