Today was one of the saddest days of my life. With a heavy heart, I was faced with a decision on euthanizing our beloved pet Ash. After 14 years of love and joy that he brought us every day, it was a gut wrenching proposition. Adopted as a kitten in 1997 from the Wisconsin Humane Society, he has made several house moves with us including the latest two in Southern California. Ash was an amazing little personality filled pet … curious, playful, gentle and loving and our hearts are saddened by his loss. Over the last 2 years he was struck with diabetes and required an inordinate amount of care which my wife faithfully administered with true devotion. The loss is even harder on her. Although we are saddened, we are happy for the 14 years of sweet memories. I will miss you Ash!
