This is Cricket. I’ve known him since he was a few hours old. For the past 5 years ago, he’s been my #1 boo (sorry Conrad).
Act I. The Beginning
I never planned on adopting a kitten. I knew I wanted a cat eventually, but I always thought I’d adopt a full-grown feline. Then my friend’s boyfriend took in a very pregnant street cat who later had 5 beautiful babies and my plans went out the window. I fell in love with all of them and went to visit pretty regularly. When they were old enough to be weaned, I knew I had to take one home.
Bruce passed away on Saturday. His health continued to rollercoaster in the weeks since my last post and then everything suddenly took a turn for the worse on Thursday. In the end we had to make the difficult decision to take him off of life support.
His passing was peaceful. He was surrounded by love. It was the right decision. Still, it was incredibly hard.
