My Karlie cat passed away this morning at home.
I was at her side, giving her pet pets, letting her know that she’s a brave and amazing little girl.
Karlie follows her buddy Edward who passed away 6 months ago to this day. I like to think that they’re chilling together once again.
Thank you one and all for your kind words when I shared Karlie’s prognosis last Thursday.
Five years ago these cats needed a home when their previous human passed away, a Gulf War veteran who lost his own battle due to PTSD.
I’m grateful that folks like you reached out to see if I would take these critters in. While the Karlie & Edward chapter of my life has ended, I’m fortunate for the experience because they gave me immeasurable joy.
Sweet dreams Kitty Girl.
This was an extraordinary episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. I like to imagine that if my father and I had more time, we too would be eating Bun Cha in Hanoi – talking about his time in Vietnam during the war and how peace with your former enemy is a wonderful thing.
