|Old Shadow with Betsy the Stove|
Our old Shadow cat is finally fading. He has renal failure - but of all the cat deaths we've dealt with, when this one is controlled and monitored, it is far less painful than many of the others.

Both of them were called the Potatoes, because when they were very little, and held in one hand, upside down, their little bellies looked like potatoes.
So we have one last Potato left. He's also the last of the Bremerton cats.
He's happy, he's doing okay. And if we get a cat all the way to renal failure, we win. Because we all die of something, and renal failure has always come late. He was born in something like the autumn of 2001, so that's not bad, making it so far in 2017.
I know we'll get good wishes - and huge thanks to all of you, who extend them. They are much appreciated.
