Today was a sad day, first I had to take Suske to the vet because she got bit by the evil black (feral) cat that lurks in the neighbourhood and she developed a very bad absess which had to be drained, etc very yucky....and then we had to put Our Man Spike down. He had stopped eating and drinking, he couldn't walk hardly at all, it was obvious his body was breaking down. He lived a happy, healthy 21 years! We adopted him in 1989 when my friend's sister moved to Australia and could not take him with her. He was the best companion we could ever hope for! We will miss him so much! We have buried him in the back yard and we will make a small memorial in the garden for him.
