Difficult morning

It's been a difficult day here at the Culver house.  Maurice rather suddenly succumbed to the kidney problems he was diagnosed with in early March and we had to quickly make the decision to put him out of his pain. A friend came over to watch Edie this morning and Jeff and I went together with Maurice to say goodbye.  He was 17, so he certainly lived his 9 lives, but it was still the saddest things we've ever done together.

So sorry to hear that, Jill. We had to make the same decision for both of our dogs at different times in the last two years and it's awful. My heart goes out to you guys.

Oh Moe; He certainly had some good times. My condolences to the whole family.

Sorry Jill. There really isn't much else to say other than I'm sorry you had to do that but I'm grateful for the good life you all shared.

Oh, Jill. I am so sorry - for all of you. I hope Edie is doing alright with this.

I didn't get to properly offer condolences when I saw you yesterday, but I'm so sorry about this. He was a really good cat.
