I had to put my cat Spock to sleep today. He was very old, and had medical issues, and it was time to let him go. I will miss him very much. I got Spock as a kitten when I was young (and a Star Trek fan). He was the cutest little ball of white fur. He used to love to sleep in bed with me, draped across my neck. When I moved out, he stayed behind with my parents and they cared for him for a long time. I recently took him back to live with me when they moved, and was able to enjoy having him back in my life every day for a short time. My niece considered Spock her cat. She love to pick him up and carry him around the house. He was very patient with her – I know she misses him very much too.
