Kia my old cat and best friend died an hour ago. I remember fearing his demise in 2009 when hen had been gone for ten days. Born in 1996 he lived a long and beautiful life. He was always free, and probably lived part time with another family as he was often gone for several days and always came back. The previous time I saw him was thursday.
He probably got caught inside in a house where people left for the holidays. He came home two hours ago, dried out and skinny, to die. In the seventeen years we were together I remember only good moments with him.
