Sorry to report that my cat Moses passed away 9:30 this morning. He was 21 this year. His defness and blindness, that afflicted him in later life, didn't hamper him in the least and up an till a few days ago he was keen to explore where ever his nose took him. However his kidneys finally stopped working and despite an improvement after 48 hours on a drip, he soon relapsed. We were able to give him lots of cuddles and fuss and even set up an improvised real fire in the living room for him to sit by last night.
I'm going to miss him so very, very much.
