OH NO Not another dead cat!!

Well, sadly, yet another kitty cat has died.
She was our little calico cat.
She was pretty old and sickly and recently she quit eating so I knew she wouldn't be around very long.
But she had a long life and it was just her time.
When we got back from the RV show late yesterday, she didn't come up on the deck for dinner.
She'd been MIA for a while and I knew that was it.
Hubby found her under the deck and she was very, very dead.
We had a quick little funeral for her.
She was a sweet, gentle kitty.
And of course.....I had to call CrazyFriend (the crazy cat lady) and deliver the sad news.
She was very upset and wanted to take the dead cat to Clemson University for an "autopsy".
I knew that was coming (which is why we buried the cat and THEN told her.
I didn't want her coming out here, wrapping the cat up in tinfoil and then driving around with it until she could find some unsuspecting vet to do and "autopsy" so she could know why the cat died.
I just wasn't in the mood for that.
Dead is dead.
Hasn't she ever heard of "Rest In Peace"???????
SO sad.
RIP Little Calico Kitty.

Cats are great companions. I am sad at his passing.
I know he gave you many hours of happiness in his quiet way.
My boy, Wilson is sitting on my lap as I type this. He makes me smile every day. He is 13 years old. I know he will not live forever. I think about that.
