I had to put my cat down earlier this year. I'm still sad about it. Sadder than I thought I would be.

When he was young, 12 years ago, he was my lap-buddy and helped me get through the trials of unemployment that lasted over a year. I found out then he had a heart murmur and that he probably wouldn't live as long as a cat normally does. I tried to remember that and make the most of the time I had.

He was my lap-buddy again when the pandemic started. I guess I didn't realize how happy that made me. I noticed at the end of 2020 some gunk was coming out of his mouth along with a bad smell. Took him to the vet and they had to take some teeth out at the beginning of 2021. Then, he seemed better! A few weeks went by and we had to bring him back to get his shots updated. Shortly after that, his belly started expanding and he struggled to jump up on my lap. :-/ Took him back and we tried a few things, but it became clear he was miserable. He wouldn't eat. I wanted someone else to make the call. I felt like I failed my best friend.

Some times I think I see him out of the corner of my eye, waiting to see if it's ok to approach. Probably just wish I could see him.

Anywho, haven't really expressed this to anyone, thought this might be a good space to fire some thoughts off. :'(

I nearly come to tears thinking of losing our cat (or dog). I get it. I think it's normal. Remember the good times. Don't dwell on anything negative (it won't do any good). Talking about it is great! Give it time. It'll get better. And if it doesn't talk to your doctor. :) In the meantime, this is a great place for that so fire away. :-*

In my news, after 12 [contrived] half days (so like 6 full days) I finally managed to make, test, and commit a change to the Xamarin app. It may be sufficient, but I'll wait to hear from the team tomorrow. That's it. I'm adding mobile development to my resume. ;) This was actually a big deal because I'm still pretty spaced out/distracted. Even today I kept walking away from my desk like it was the last place my subconscious wanted to be. I ended up getting that work done finally at like midnight instead of during the day. :)

Stoned thought: create a "shrine" thread for your cat. Post as many pictures as you can, tell stories, etc. And then when you tire of that you've moved on. :) And somebody saner than me can clock you to point out when it gets too much. ;D

Alternatively, do that still, but on social media with family and IRL friends? Up to you. :D

You lost your cat. It hurts. That sucks. It's ok to hurt. It's also ok to let it out and move on whenever you're ready.

Aww, you're no fun. Glad to see you're back in action though.

I myself have lost many dear animals over the years. Many cats, and several dogs. It's always hard. Some of them were my best friends. I know what it's like to have a lap buddy cat. Birdie was my bestie. We even had the same birthmarks.

I got a message from push32 that he couldn't log in to allegro.cc anymore.

He sent a request to support@allegro.cc, but I thought I'd mention it here in case Matthew reads this first.

Sorry to hear that. The last cat we had lived to be close to 21 years old before we finally had to put her down. I think I cried for about a week after that (I still miss her to this day). She loved to come into my computer room and sit between my legs until I picked her up and hugged her etc.

1) why did you wait that long to get vaccinated!?

2) the delta variant doesn't give a crap about the vaccine.

I have to keep waiting still as vaccines in our country are limited and I'm in the last group to get it.

2) the delta variant doesn't give a crap about the vaccine.

So far, we've managed to keep the Delta variant out of the general population.
