RIP Weasel, 1997?-2015 - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
RIP Weasel, 1997?-2015
Weasel is no longer with us.

She'd been looking increasingly frail over the winter, as cats who are somewhere around eighteen years old do, but her decline had accelerated in the past month (these two pictures are two weeks apart). She was walking more and more shakily and curling up to sleep in random places:
About last Wednesday we realised that neither of us had seen her eat anything since one tiny scrap of bacon on Monday; we made her as comfortable as we could, but by the weekend it was plain that she was so done with this BS. So, we did the kindest thing and took her for the last ride on Tuesday, which was the earliest we could arrange at that point and I think half of what feels so bad about the overall experience is that the timing had to put her through about two extra days of I Am Really Not Having Any Fun At This Point. I've never had a cat actually up and die of natural causes -- though for about the last two weeks we kept expecting that we'd walk in one night and find her gone -- but this is about the closest it's come, so I suppose the only regret should be that it's such a hard call to make regarding someone else's quality of life, and I can only hope that somebody would pay so much consideration to me when and if a time like this comes.

Back in the Salad Days.

Weasel is survived by her utterly indifferent roommate.

I'm so sorry. She was a good, strange kitty, and will be much missed.
