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.

So sorry, Zem.  Since their lives are always shorter than ours, we
are destined to have such sad losses, but you can just be glad that
you had him and that his life was happy with you.  Hugs.

I came home tonight to realize Calhoun is dying.  He is so weak he cannot
get up from his bed. I do not believe he will last the night. I have known for a few days that he was going down quickly. I think it's a result of the
FIV.  James was the same -- sudden dramatic weight loss and lethargy.  Cal
only lost his appetite this week. He responded to me when I came home this
afternoon and "held" my finger while I rubbed him..  This cat's death is
extremely sad for me because he has been such a faithful friend -- even when
he moved around the corner.  I'm so glad I brought him inside before the
coyotes got him.
