Re: Calhoun

I am so sorry Zem.  I was hoping for a different outcome, but it sounds like he didn't suffer long.  Take comfort in that.

  Thanks, everybody for all your kind words. This group has become a family 
to me, and you all always help. Calhoun did wait to say good-bye before he 
crossed the bridge sometime Friday night. I left him "lying in state" when 
I went to work on Saturday, and we had a private burial when I got back 
home. Thankfully the ground was soft from all the recent rain. You are all 
correct in stating the obvious that we can only provide love and kindness 
for a short time while our pets are here. I do realize that, and I am so 
grateful to have had the opportunity to interact with this particular cat, 
who was more like a wise old man than a kitty. I think all the others miss 
him, too. Now, if I'm lucky, another one will not show up. I need to 
commence winding down on the large cat population in my house.
