This is a tale of what I know about a magnificent loyal animal that died recently.
Perhaps it was from old age, perhaps it was from poisoning, perhaps it was from other causes.
Regardless, he’s gone.
There may or may not be a Side – Grimmelkin, it’s up to him, really.
I just wanted to share my thoughts on our plot of land here.
Originally, I wanted to put this off for Monday or somethin’, to reminisce…
But, I’ve decided to do it now because I’ve got to go through with quite a few plans for the time being. I’m behind in everything, and on top of that, my boy needs a break.
That cat was more or less, his cat, and well, it’s like we both lost a friend.
There’s no time for pain and grief just yet, but at the same time, I can’t feel sad, I only have happy memories.
This cat is dubbed Smokey, also spelled as Smokie.
This isn’t an ordinary cat, and I can’t say anyone even owned this cat.
I only knew this cat by chance, to begin with, but I feel sad because I saw it often, compared to my boy, who lived with this dear old cat for most of his life up to now. From his elementary days to now, actually. That cat saw him from Elementary up until he graduated High School!
He died, mostly in peace, but from what I’m told, the previous few days, he meowed almost as if he was in pain, or perhaps wanting attention. I know not, but it was the sounds I heard over Skype, if only for a few days… I saw the cat previously before that, and he seemed to be doing fine, with the exception that he didn’t quite eat as of late.
We know this cat’s been around, and he was in his 20’s when he passed. We estimate him to be about 24~26, give or take. Which would make him 199? ~ 2017.
