My son's in laws are in town from Italy so my son decided to rent a cabin in Pigeon Forge for the weekend so he could show them around. We decided to drive up and meet them there so we could see the girls and the in laws. We have been with his in laws several times before, including there home in Italy, but it had been a while.
This was the good part of the weekend. The bad part was my cat Rusty passed away. I knew it was going to be anytime, but it certainly did not make it any easier. He has been part of our family for seventeen years.
Here are just a few photos I have of him on my computer. I tried to scan some of his kitten pictures and cannot figure out how to use them in my blog post. They are in my HP photosmart, but I don't have a clue how to get them to a place where I can use them. So here are just a few that I have. I am sure Bailey is going to miss her friend, too.
Rusty was given to me on Mother's day in May of 1994. I am not positive of his birth date except it was probably in March of 1994 since he was around six weeks old when I got him.
They ended up getting along real good together though. This photo was taken around November 2010. His health had slowly declined since then.
Goodbye sweet boy! You will be missed.
This is certainly the hardest post I have had to write. I have cried on and off all weekend. It is so hard to say goodbye. I have lost many pets and it just never gets any easier.
Thanks for all the kind comments on my mini home tour post this weekend. You helped to brighten my weekend!
Hope you have a good week and I am sure mine will get better as time heals.
