    It hurts. Bad. He was 8 and a really sweet companion. His brother, Jasper, won't even come out from underneath the bed (his 'hiding' pace), and when he does, he just roams around crying. I hope he gets over it soon and isn't always so timid and scared.
    Oh no...
    I know you have had him a really long time too, which makes it worse. Please give Jasper extra hugs and snoogles for me. I know his crying is making it worse for you, too. (And, by the way--you were one of the people who urged me to get some kitties way back during the old Christmas party...it took me a while, but I'm really glad I finally did get them.)
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Aww Jewels, I'm so sorry. I know how much your boys mean to you. You were just telling me last week how well they were doing with the move and all.

    Jewels, I am so sorry to hear about Dusty. Poor Jaspar, he is really hurting. My heart goes out to him and you.

    How long has he been gone? Are you sure coyotes got him (you said "evidently")? Any chance he's just missing and will wander home? Sorry for your loss. Give Jasper lots of attention.
    Count your blessings!

    History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I'm so sorry, Jewelsy.

    Dusty was a beautiful boy. I hope Jasper can adjust to being an "only" kitty quickly.
