Ringo passed away today.  

As recommended by the local vet, I took him to Cornell to see what they said, and in the past two weeks we found out he had a VERY aggressive intestinal lymphoma. 

The hardest part for me was that the vets, the vet techs, and the vet staff locally and at Cornell kept saying what a wonderful sweet and well behaved cat he was and thinking he doesn't have much longer.  I know what a great cat he was, he was my cat.

He was overnight at Cornell the past few days and his condition was much worse. I elected to have him put asleep, he hates car rides and didn't want to traumatize him anymore for the trip home.  I brought his body back home for the family to see.  I debated if I was going to bury him in the backyard or have him cremated, in the end I decided that I did not want to dig a hole, and I did not want to put him in it.  When I took him to the local vet for the cremation, one of the techs said, "Oh no, this is Ringo?  He is a legend here because he is so well behaved and sweet."
So I guess he was an above average well behaved cat.

I was not his original caretaker, he bonded with me and I took over.  He lived 14 years, and with me for the past 10 years.  I have no idea what she did to make him not like her. He was a wonderful cat that seemed to love everyone and everyone loved him.

Sorry to hear the bad news.

Meanwhile, some cats just don't understand how glass works.

The cat is fine, the human (you) don't understand how cats work. :)

Zoo, very sorry to hear about Ringo - he sounds like a loving kitty - and a handsome one, too!

Thank you, sweet, soft like a chinchilla and very friendly. I was very lucky.

I don't know what happened to the dog room.

 

My sister's dog passed away August of 2014, this past July she got herself a puppy, avery nice, very sweet dog.  As with most dogs she doesn't like the vacuum cleaner. She is very skittish, if a mouse farts in Idaho the dog jumps back.  Oddly enough the dog is very curious about leaf blowers.

Big Clive is one of my favorite electrical engineers on YouTube.  This video is a bit different from his usual fare.

Our favorite neighbor cat got hit by a car this weekend. We found him on the side of the road this morning while taking the kids to the bus stop.

He was really friendly. Constantly came over to meow and get petted. He was taken care of by our non-asshole neighbors, who had taken him in a few years ago when he appeared in the area as a stray.

I would have preferred if the cat had been spared and the asshole neighbors got hit by a car. Statistically speaking, the assailant was speeding.

Sorry to hear about the kitty, IG.  Not easy finding a cat like that even a non-ninja one.  Kids doing ok?
