Losing a Friend

My Lovely Wife and I took the tough step of having our kitty put to sleep this morning. She had been sick for quite some time and it was clear that the road ahead was going to be even tougher than it had been up to now. Enough suffering, we decided.

Many thanks to those of you who knew her for being her friend, even for a brief time. Especially to Dr. Monika Jankowski of South Paws, whose care and extreme compassion deeply moved me. She was incredible and showed herself to be more than a caretaker by profession but also by nature.

Remembering Connie, our wonderfully eccentric, lovable cat, I thought I would share this video of her, cleaning the window screen. She loved tasting the world and was a lovely, playful, adorable critter and we miss her deeply.

It’s Not a Cougar


Via DCist we have a Washington Post report that last week’s UMD “cougar” may actually have been a large Savannah (serval/domestic feline hybrid). So I guess all you people who couldn’t resist making cougar jokes last week all feel pretty silly now. Me, I’ll settle for saying the title of this post with an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent.
