Goodbye Dante

Well I hope everyone's Christmas was better than ours. We lost our cat Dante yesterday and up until Friday he was all right. He was old, but still playful and had a good appetite. He picked at his food Friday then wouldn't eat Saturday or Sunday. Went to the vet yesterday and they said he needed to be hospitalized, so we agreed to let them do some testing. They called less than an hour later and said he had passed. Anyway, I guess it's a good thing we didn't do any traveling for the holiday. If he would have died while someone else was babysitting, I would have felt even worse. He was fifteen.

Our younger cat was looking for him last night. He's never been alone before, so I'm a little worried about coming home and finding the apartment trashed. Either way, as much as I love Sam, Dante was the affectionate one. Sam's aloof and can't be bothered.

Aside from that, we had a nice time opening the gifts our parents sent. I missed them, but at least we got to spend one last night with our little Dante. I want to work on a little memorial for him tonight, last night I was crying a little too hard.

Rest in peace, little friend.
