Rest in Peace Sid
Sad. My mom's cat had to be euthanized today. Sidney was a great cat. He started out in North Carolina at my sister's neighbor's house. They moved away and Sid became theirs. Very much an outdoor cat, but very very loving and needful of affection. When my sister moved into an apartment where they couldn't have cats, Sid moved in with my mom. He squeaked - he didn't meow. And lovvveed to be combed. Especially by my brother, who looked like he was abusing the poor cat, but he was just getting fur out. Eventually Sid got really spoiled - when he got used to my nieces, they would pet him as he ate, and so he got used to that, and would look up at you waiting for you to pet him so he could eat. My mom loved him so much, and he was someone she could take care of and spend time with - even if he was spoiled. We all will miss him very much, but nooone as much as my mom. I hope she does ok. But he lived a long good life - we think he was over 20 years old. He just couldn't go on.
