    Damn, that's so hard. Cancer took my little buddy a year ago this past Summer and I still tear up thinking about him. We had a rocking 15 years together but that's still too short.

    Here a couple of shots of him helping me in the studio.

    Best to you, man. It's never easy.

    Now I'm gonna go pour a dram of Scotch and have a cry before the fam gets here for Turkey Day.

    What a cutey. Ya, that's what happened to my guy as well but he was only 13. Very sudden downturn though. Really caught me off guard.

    I'll make a toast to both of them today but it'll be w/ bourbon.

    Three of our rescues; Silicon and Blinky looking like a Maxfield Parrish painting, with Tesla (shockingly smart) tracking something out of frame.

    I think I posted some pictures of these guys in another thread as a distraction from all the grumbling, but this a more appropriate place for them. Little Kitty adopted us about a year ago and as you can see he is quite comfortable in his new role as Head of Household...he is very bossy. He also brought Scruffy out the shadows. Scruffy is still a bit wild and timid, but he lets me gently pet him and he usually then flops over and rolls around...dangerously cute. The two of them are classic frenemies

    He's a Maine Coon and no platform is remotely big enough for him.

    spherical - I thought Little Kitty was ridiculous...so awesome everyone, thanks for posting

    edited to clarify I don't think Little Kitty is ridiculous...gawd forbid...but his unabashed posture is so awesomely goofy. Nice to know we're not alone.
