Tonight my Mommy and Daddy went to visit Auntie Janet. Janet lives in the house next to our old house where we lived when I adopted Mommy and Daddy. Janet is a big fan of mine, and I used to let her pet me and give me treats.
Janet had a cat too, but he stayed inside only. His name was Spud. Back then, I was allowed outside to rule my territory that I had established over many years of being an indoor/outdoor kitty. (I have since retired and stay indoors only.)
Spud liked to lounge in his kitchen window, and I would go over there and sit under the window and tease him mercilessly about being an indoor kitty. He wanted to come outside and play! He was a good sport about my teasing. Occasionally he would sneak outside, and Mommy would help Janet look for me, and Janet would help Mommy when I went missing for too long.
I found out that Janet had to send poor Spud to the Bridge last month. He was an old man cat, but still it's hard to say goodbye. Janet came to visit me last Christmas Eve and see me in my fancy Christmas collar, and she told me Spud seemed unwell, but I was purring he would be ok.
Good-bye for now, my friend Spud! I will see you on the other side.

I'm sorry you lost your beloved Spud. There's never enough time, is there? Sending consoling purrs from all of us.
