alas, the staff is smaller

Dear Museum patrons and friends,

Today, our lovely Sally Cat - you may see her in the profile photo, lounging on the monitor - had to be put to sleep due to a cancerous tumor. I've just gotten home. Normally she would be jumping on my lap and helping me type about now, but no more.

We made sure she had one last terrific day: all the food she wanted, cuddles on the couch with our favorite movie, and a long time rolling about in the back yard, as you may see here:


I tried very hard to let her go the right way. My heartfelt thanks to Chambers Creek Veterinary for their loving and expert care.

Hi again Curator, I didn't know if you would want support from the Cat Blogosphere but if you wanted I could put in the word, I know they would all send their deepest purrs.

Hi Fin,
Thanks for the Blogosphere offer - yes please, I would be honored, and even more, Sally deserved it. She was a sweet, funny cat and I miss her so much.

Thank you, everyone, your kindness truly helps me these days.

We're so sorry. It's hard to make that decision and follow through, but you put the animal's welfare above your grief. It sounds like she went with a last great day and dignity.

We add our sympathies to those already here...she's having fun chasing butterflies, rolling in the grass and playing with many new friends...your here missing her madly. Hardly seems fair. You must know, you saved her from suffering and for that she is grateful.
