Tonight I hurt. I hurt for me. I hurt for my kids. I hurt for my Jeff.

Our kitty died today.

We are all so sad.

The tears just keep coming. We cry in shifts. One person stops, the next person starts.

Marcellus was a member of our family. He had been with us for 14 years. Our kids have never known life without this cat. He was my constant friend. He always gave us unconditional love - even when I forgot to buy the cat food.

I am so so so thankful for our vet who helped us make the right decision today. I am thankful that so many people in our lives got to experience the perfect pet. I am thankful that my friend Krob was willing to take some incredible pictures of him this afternoon before we all had to say good-bye.

We were all so lucky to have this guy in our lives.

He was purring all the way until the end.

Oh my sweet kitty, how I will miss you.

I am so, so sorry. We loved Marcellus too. I know how hard it is for you to lose this member of the family. Know that you gave him the ultimate act of love in your decision....heartbreaking as it is!
