Neko, my cat of around 16-18 years, just passed away today. She was at a point where nothing could be done for her, and, if we tried anything, she’d be in pain. She had a peaceful end, with us there for her.I feel like I should have a beautiful watercolor up of her as a tribute, but, to be honest, right now it just feels an effort to approach it yet. A lot of my energy’s just gone into cleaning any old smells or old stains that may bother the other cats. Winnie is especially on edge ever since Neko became extremely sick, though it was more because she disliked the new cat smell than out of any worry over Neko. This will help her calm down. I’ve gotten very close to Neko over the months I’ve been giving her medication- I think that may have made the last half-year or so of her life so much better. Perhaps when I feel a bit better and finish up my Directory of Illustration page, I’ll have something to show all. It’s been entirely too quiet here.
