Goodbye Green-eyed Lady

    Green-eyed lady, lovely lady.
      Green-eyed Lady by Sugarloaf
      (words and music by J.C. Phillips and David Riordan)

We lost Gypsy last night. Her back legs weren't working and she was in pain, so we took her to the vet. It was likely a clot blocking the flow of blood to her back legs, but that didn't really matter. She was sixteen and in a lot of pain. They administer a strong sedative first, so nothing after will be felt. Almost immediately she stopped howling and slowly drifted off. That's when we knew we'd made the right choice.

We'll miss you lady-cat.


    Space, the final fronier.

Let's put some space between here and election news.

That's better.
