My eldest cat passed away this weekend. He was a 14 years old sealpoint Siamese, and I am bereft. Thankfully, the dear daughters are NOT clamoring to replace him immediately. I don't know if I want to; I've had Siamese cats since I was 6 and it feels very strange not to have one now, but I really need some space to mourn. Humphrey (named after Humphrey Bogart) was very special and of course he cannot be replaced.
Regularly scheduled knitting posts will commence soon, but this took precedence. Rest easy, my friend.
