Loss is never easy to fathom, no matter the form of “loved one.” But, the difference between having human loved ones especially children is that you won’t hear a parent say, Well, they’ll probably only live 15 or so good years. Naturally parents want their kids to live longer than themselves. When you have pets, however, especially sick ones, one must be merciful, not selfish. It is not about “you,” it is about the quality of life or lessoning pain to bring the animal to a peaceful ever after.
Pets see you through life-altering events, through childhood, adolescence, single life, adulthood, etc. You bond, you depend upon them as much as they depend upon you. And when it is time to free them…you must let go. In my case, he outlived my beloved mother. Matter of fact I only adopted him when mom was first diagnosed.
Goodbye to Najee Zaire, my nearly 16 year old diabetic Tabby, my baby boy, was the sweetest male I have ever in my life known. (My heart is truly broken having to put that boy down). He was euthanized and his ashes were spread with other pets’ ashes along the Santa Cruz mountains. (I watched him being Euthanized, but I was not there when his ashes were spread; it was done by a pet memorial service).

I am happy to announce my second book, Spoiled Beyond Recognition, the Unusual Life and Agony of an Angry “Alpha” Male is out! Not yet on Amazon, I think next week, but you can Google search and probably purchase on Lulu.com. (Will add link here soon)
Spoiled story goes like this:
Benjamin, a believer in the afterlife and an ailurophobe after having been bitten by a cat as a boy, was startled by a stray cat at a rooftop retro dance party and fell off. He woke up inside a cardboard box behind a 1970s-themed Disco bar. He was later taken in and adopted by his neighbor and friend where he spent the rest of his life as the very thing he detested. A cat.
Gonna hit the gym to “reload” then gotta prepare the video for the book.
Feeling blessed, accomplished and happy. Have a great weekend, all! LDS
