Oh Carol, I am so sorry. I'm crying too just thinking about your pain, and your poor little guy. RIP.

Carol, I'm so sorry your furry friend is gone. More like losing a furry kid. Hang in there.

I'm so sorry, Carol, especially that it was so traumatic. Take care.

I just had to share, wish I could have gotten at least a picture. My lunch was some of the leftover pot stickers from last night. Heated them up and drizzled the dipping sauce over them since I was eating at my desk. The empty plate was sitting on my desk and every once in a while I'd reach over and swipe up some of the sauce (which I love and could almost drink) and lick it off my finger. It's a soy sauce, dark sesame oil, hot sauce mixture. Little Miss Mindy was sitting and watching me do this. After a while, she comes slinking across the other desk to get to the one I was working at, goes behind my monitor and sticks her nose to my plate, smells it for a few minutes, watching me out of the corner of her eye to see if I was going to shoo her away. I didn't because I wanted to see what she would do. Finally, she decides to try it with just a tongue tip barely swipe. Guess that wasn't enough of a taste so she took a full swipe. OMG, she jerked her head back, scrunched up her nose, started smacking her mouth, turned around and took off the way she came. Told Craig she must think I have a messed up palate. Wish I could have gotten a video.
