Goodbye, Vic

I put off posting about this for several days.

Vic got much worse last week and stopped eating altogether, then disappeared for two days. We wondered if we'd see him again, but he turned up in the evening and we brought him inside. We could tell he was like Claudia was in her last few days last year--thin, weak, finding it hard to walk, and not even wanting to drink--so we cuddled him and talked to him and decided that if he was still there in the morning we'd take him to the vet. He was in the garden (it's very warm these days) so we took him in. He was very calm and purring when we stroked him, and I think he knew. The vet was very gentle and said he was ready to go.

So goodbye, Vic. You had a very good life after you turned up here and decided to stay. :-)
