VERY sad for me, but a good thing for him. He's old, & he's in terrible pain. I gave him 3 good years or so, saved him from death row at the pound, & loved him.
He is the sweetest, most affectionate, laid back DREAM cat you can imagine. Never gave me any problems (aside from peeing everywhere after he got the stone, which is not really his fault). He's just been a dream. I am so sad to let him go. But it's for the best, for him.
If you are into this kind of thing, please say a prayer for Ernie around 11am Pacific time....I already know he's going to kitty heaven, he's more than earned it.
Might not hurt to say a prayer for me, too....I am not good with this...
