My cat Basil just went into a twitching trance. He began to growl in a very bizarre deep voice.

"It was the liver you fed me last night you fukking bastard"

@Bi-Polar Bear,
After having a drink that Gus had mentioned earlier it did remind me of a funny book that I read a few years back. I may be wrong on the exact title but it was written by Alan Alda and I think that it was "Never Have Your Dog Stuffed". I'm glad that you have your memories of your beloved Wench and don't have the sad reminders that Mr. Alda did in his childhood.

Glad to see ya, Gus.
I can't tell if you are being serious.
If you are, I'm really sorry about your loss.
Tell us about the stone.

It's never easy to lose a pet, some of us know it all to well - unfortunately. I am sorry gustav that you had to say goodbye to your companion of 15 years. You've had good years together and that's how Wench will live on in your memories. Yes, have a drink or two....

I'm happy that I get to point out that Gus is giving up pussy for snake, but I'm sad that Gus lost a good friend.

Sorry, Gus.

@Tai Chi,
The cat, Wench, put up with you for 15 years?
Sorry, Gus, for your loss.

Wench lived to be 15 years old? That is proof positive that you gave her a good life, Gus. Whisky is definitely in order. Maybe several.

It's good to see you back here, even if it is a sad occasion.

Maybe we can all donate money and you can get a nice headstone like this one.

I wouldn't invite people over to view it if you put "Wench" on it. But then we might only collect enough money to put 3 letters on the stone so "Cat" might be more appropriate.

I had a pet snake and one morning my father got up out of bed and found it in his shoe and flushed it down the toilet.

@RexRed,
That's sad too, RexRed. Parents can be kind of insensitive, sometimes.

@roger,
I never really faulted him for it but I do strangely remember it.

Sorry about the cat, Gus. I feel for you, buddy.

And as for your next pet, let me just make a one-word suggestion: Piranhas. You're welcome.

@gustavratzenhofer,
Getting another cat wouldn't be replacing Wench, but perhaps you could look at it like there are many animals that need a loving home and perhaps as you put your cat into the earth and felt the pain of that loss you realized that you had the ability to offer just that.

Food for thought, but take your time in your mourning.

Aw Gus, I'm really sorry.
Been through this myself, too many times. Sigh.
The little blighters don't live as long as we do (in human, not cat years), that's the problem. Gone too soon! Always, always ... Sad
But, ya know, you can always make another critter very, very contended & loved. And you can bring new joy into your own life, too, by adopting that (preferably needing a home) new critter. This has been my time-honored way of coping with such sad losses. I commend it to you, possum. Smile

@Diest TKO,
You don't really get another cat, you know. Cats just kind of happen.
