A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we had to take our cat Mikey to the vet. It seemed like he just had some sort of bug and was getting better. But, last week he took a turn for the worse and never recovered. Saying good bye to that little guy was one of the hardest things…pets truly become part of the family. And Mikey was no different, he made us laugh and made us angry – but he was always there at the end of the day to curl up on your lap. I still expect him to always be around the corner, and I imagine it will take a while to remember he won’t be there. My wife picked up Mikey for something like $35 from a local shelter. We both agree it was the best $35 either of us has ever spent.
