Where would we be without cat pictures?

PJ the cat

PJ the cat

We’ve had a pretty lame year. In the middle of all the other crap that’s been going on, we had to have PJ put to sleep. He had Chronic Renal Failure for three years and was doing well with lots of medications, subcutaneous fluids twice a day, and lots of other care. But in March he developed a mass in his lung that was on the verge of abcessing. Mike was out of town at the time, but I decided to do it anyway because it was a Friday and I was worried it would progress over the weekend and he would be suffering. He was 18 and a cat that was full of life and mischief.

PJ was a really good traveler and we took him lots of places, to L.A. several times, on a road trip thru the western states, even down to Texas.
