It's a sad day today. Bear, one of my 15 year old cats, went on his final journey.

The vet that had looked after him all his life came out for a housecall, as he stresses very badly at the clinic.

Bear and I cuddled for an hour in the sunshine while we waited for the vet, and then he slipped quietly into sleep in my arms.

He had feline ideopathic ulcerative dermititis. Or vetspeak for non-healing skin ulcers of unknown cause.

There is a Bear shaped hole in the household tonight.


  1. Jodie, Bear looked like my Newman! It brought tears to my eyes. After almost 5 years, I still miss him.



  2. They are funny little souls, a pity they are with us for such a short time.
