We knew that our time with our kitty Nugget would be limited as he approached nearly 18 years. Jim and I adopted him from a friend back in 2000. He was a beautiful long haired kitty who was not all that sociable, but he loved us and we loved him. He adjusted to a number of changes including several house moves and two new kiddos to the family. He came around more often and let the kids love on him. We said our goodbyes in September when he became dehydrated and lethargic and the mass on his intestine indicated cancer. It was a hard decision to make but we could not bare to see him in pain so we gave him love and left him in good hands. He is truly missed.
