Some of you may know [personal profile] seedy_girl and I's cat, Archibald. He's been in [personal profile] seedy_girl's family for a while, but we inherited him in October 2004, and he's been living with us ever since.

He's been an awesomely amazing cat, but today, after a fairly long struggle with a variety of health issues, we had to take him to the vet for his final sleep. He got to spend a last night and day with us, snuggled into bed with us, ate some chicken, sat outside in the sun, curled up in our laps and had plenty of pats and head kisses from both of us.

I've uploaded a small gallery of Archibald pictures.

He went peacefully and happily, surrounded by people who loved him (including the vets at the Cat Clinic).

We're going to miss him forever. Vale, Archibald.

May his afterlife be full of catnip mice, sunny grass, and warm human laps!

I'm so sorry for your loss. And so glad his going was peaceful - those sorts of vets, even more than the already good ones, are a blessing.

Peace be with him, and God's mercy, and God's favor.

(And the idea of a cat-only vet clinic makes so much sense...)

It's always very hard, but better a happy last day than one filled with pain and distress. May your memories of him be good ones.

Even though I knew it was coming this makes me very sad.

Sympathy to both of you.

I'm glad his last day was so lovely, though.

Peace to your Puss, I'm sure my cat friendly dog will show Archibald around the Rainbow Bridge area.
