I was going to post pictures of what I see from my balcony as my next post, but this weekend, while my OTW was playing on the internets, she found an old roommate's page, and discovered that her roommate's kitty Murphy had gone to the Rainbow Bridge on Oct 20.
Murphy had fallen and injured himself. He could barely walk after the fall and when her ex-roommate took him to the vet, she found he also had kidney failure and a urinary infection and the vet only gave him 3-6 months to live with treatment.
I lived with Murphy when I was two and I loved him. He was kind of grumpy, like Grumpybutt, but he let me groom him, and snuggle with him sometimes, even if he always asked his mom "Who let in the (bad word) kitten?!?"
I hope all his pain is gone now.
