and sad holidays
sadly, we came home from our holiday travels to a tragic situation. we could tell something was wrong right away when punch wasn't waiting for us and he hadn't eaten all of his food. i went upstairs to see if he was in his favorite spot and he was sitting on the floor of the guest bedroom. something didn't look right and so i tried to get him to walk to me and realized he couldn't use his hind legs. long story short, we had to make the decision to put him down. it was heartbreaking. the vet thinks that he had a tumor that was affecting his spinal cord and paralyzing his hind legs. there was not a whole lot that they could do for him. at least he had 11 years full of life.
RIP otto "monkeypunch". you were the best cat.
