One weird cat

Moose

By the way, have you ever noticed that one of the exceptions to the "i before e, except after c" rule is weird.

Marvin - 1999-2018 (19 years old)
This post is for my own personal record as much as anything.

He was diagnosed hyperthyroid in 2011 and chronic kidney failure some years later.

He had a good run and died on his own in a reasonably comfortable manner, while at the vet clinic. As good of an ending as I could have hoped for. Probably chalk it up to heart failure.

For me, I'm calling it a happy-sad day.

Moose

Added by edit - I've once again made my avatar (for now) one that includes Marvin - He's on the far right. That photo was from back in 2015, so he would have been 16 then.

The far left (back) is Munchkin, currently 10 years. In the middle is Teddy. currently 13 years.

To answer the Phat question from the next message, now down to 4 cats.

How many cats do you now have, Moose?

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul
