RIP Jack

Jack ended up getting worse and by this afternoon he could no longer even hold up his head.  There were other things too, but let’s just say he was in bad shape.  I called the vet on his cell phone and he met me at the office around 3:30pm.  By 3:45pm, Jack slipped gracefully from this world.  He will be very missed.

He was a kind and loving cat that always welcomed guests to the house.  He would hang off my counter and expect kisses when you went by.  He loved to be brushed and would steal straws from your glass.  He would snuggle up in bed or in you lap and he had to be center of attention.  He was an ear biter and took out several corners on furniture around here.  We switched to round tables after that.  He always loved to sit on the counter when the dishwasher was running.  He loved the kittens that came after him and was never sick before this.  It’s hard to believe he’s gone.

We recently found a old CD that had some pictures of all of them as kittens.  I thought I would share a few of Jack.

  • Oh no, I am so sorry to hear that. I’ll miss his company when I visit.

    Also, I’m sorry if I’ve spammed your email. I was enjoying all the new pet photos on flickr and favoriting things like crazy. I stopped when I remember you might be getting email for each of those. The pictures are fantastic.

  • Rose, so sorry to hear about Jack – it’s never easy to lose a pet and this past year has been very hard for you. I hope the rest of your pets stay healthy and happy!

  • Rose,

    So sorry to hear about Jack. I know that he will be missed terribly. You will need to get some extra loving from your other 4 footed babies to help with the lose.
