No way to sugar coat it...

This has been one shitty month.  The goods have been good... but man oh man the bads suck big hairy monkey balls! 

I lost my kitty last night.  
Dezi was unhappy being an inside kitty.  He had wanderlust but never wandered all that far.  He stayed close to home and used the doggy door with Murphey to go in and out.  

He made it through all of the New Years Eve festivities and finally crawled under Jocelyn's crib to go to sleep and hide from the fireworks.  

He must have wandered out on Sunday afternoon and from here... I don't know.  all I do know is that last night around 10:00 pm, I got a call that he had been brought into an emergency animal hospital.  He had been hit by a car and was very very very cold.  So I don't know how long he had been laying there on the side of the road.  

They did an ex ray and determined that his spine had been dislocated and he was paralyzed in the hindquarters.  So I made the humane and impossible decision to have him put down last night around 12:30 am.  I went and held his little face in my hands and told him how I loved him.  I sang to him and let the doctor take away his pain.  

He was my little buddy and he is now sleeping on my sisters head.  His big spirit is going to be missed.  
Love you Dezi.  Take good care of Kiki.  

Ok...  I'm ready for a new start with happy things.  :)
