Jescellany

I had to have Jessie put down yesterday afternoon. She'd not eaten for two days, and her remaining eye was suppurating badly, and I think she may have been in quite a lot of pain.

She was a big part of my life, and I'm going to miss her a lot - but I'm also a little relieved, because I was worrying how a blind, arthritic, 17-year-old cat would cope with being in a new house. (Assuming my house move ever actually happens.) She found her way round this one entirely by memory, but a new layout would have been very stressful for her.

Sleep well, little one: you had plenty of practice.
