Banana’s Dead.

Three hours ago he was purring on my pillow.  Now he’s in a box.  I’ll probably never know what happened in between, except that it must have been agony.

I have to go dig a hole.  More later.

  12. Oh. As much as I fear the little, brain parasites spreading critters, this saddens even me.

    Bury him somewhere nice in the woods..

  13. Aw. Poor kitty. And condolences to y’all on the loss.

  14. — Sigh! — I’m so sorry, too.

  15. Dude, there are pretty much no words. He was a very special beastie, and that rare case where not only the people he lived with found him so. He will be missed. Bye Ba-na-na.

  16. So sorry, Peter.

  17. So sorry to hear that…

  18. Shit, Peter, I’m truly sorry to hear that.

  20. Damn, that’s terrible. You have my condolences.

  21. Hail the Paws!

  22. I’m so sorry to hear this, Peter. You have my condolences and deepest sympathies. I’m sure you gave him a good life.

  23. Condolences on your loss Peter.

  24. Really only one thing to say to this: may all the fanatically religious science-deniers follow his tragic example soon. Although Banana went without any need, theirs will be a regretful but necessary loss. If we want to prevent unfathomable medieval hardships anyways. Banana only enriched the world and he shall be missed, they won’t be.

  25. Ugh. Always tough when one of the Furry Ones passes. Be well.

  26. Ah, that’s sadness, am sorry for your loss and for the end of his fuzzy little journey.

  27. Shit, shit, shit. I’m so sorry.

  28. Also…autopsy? Curious what killed the cat? Burst abscess? Hemorrhage?

  29. Tumor that grew into something viital? Has he been eating well lately? Was he.. Okay.. I guess he was. If he was purring. Personally , i would get a map of a cat, nitrile gloves and a knife and go investigate..

  30. Rotten luck, Peter – my condolences.
    You never get used to this sort of thing.

  31. Banana was Top Cat of the ‘crawl. He will be sadly missed. But his time with you outweighs his end, remember that.

  32. Oh no. Wasn’t he the answering machine purr guy? Oh dear. So very sorry.

  33. It’s so hard when the wee ones under our care suffer…

    Wishing you peace.

  34. My sincere condolences, Peter.

  35. I realise I’m only a stranger on the internet, but I’m very sorry for your loss.

  36. as I said on FB . . . : (

  37. Sorry to hear that, man. Wish you the best.

  38. My condolences man 🙁

  39. Sorry to hear of Banana’s death. Hope you hold on to happy memories.

  40. Suppose it’s one less. One less worthy adversary, to keep a fella sharp and handy with the shotgun. Their passing makes us lesser folk.

    Sorry for your loss. Go get that woman you found and let her give you a hug.

  41. Sorry to hear that 🙁

  42. It’s such a blow to lose a close companion in such a sudden and unexpected way – my sincere sympathies to you and all who will be missing Banana.

  43. 🙁

  44. Condolences.

    I would suggest to reread “The Cat Who Walks Through Walls”, it might help to ease the pain.

  45. Tough piece of luck, Peter, and I’m sorry to hear that. Myself and Osama bin Kitty send our condolences.

  46. My condolences, Mr. Watts. It always hurts to lose a friend like that…

  47. Awwwww!!! I just read this! ***sniffles***.
    Banana was all wuvvly, he was. we’ll miss you banana.

    I hope your atoms end up in big trees and saucers of milk and colorful ladybugs and big cats and little cats and maybe even a bit of internet backbone cable ferrying No Moods bits to and fro, for pages like this one, where we talk about you fondly.
