Sylvester and Sebastian

July 21, 2023

I put Sylvester down early this evening.  He was just 11 years old.

It was time.  He had cancer. 

He wasn't eating, he wasn't interacting with me or his step brothers, he didn't want to go outside...
When he walked, he walked very gingerly, and very slowly.
He was in obvious pain and discomfort, and had been for at least two weeks. 
(Probably longer than two weeks.  That's just when I first noticed it.)

He was the best pet I ever had.  He would sit on my lap, just about every single day. 
He really enjoyed my company.  He really liked being with me.

I'm really gonna miss him.  I adopted him on Monday, January 14th. 
I had the pleasure of taking care of him for exactly 3,840 days... just a bit more than ten and a half years.

You were my sunshine, my little sunshine.
You made me happy, when skies were gray.
You'll never know dear, how much I loved you.
Said goodbye to my sunshine today.
