On Nov 22, Boots suddenly did not want to eat, nor was he very active. On Nov 23, in the morning, he did not run away when we went into the quonset. He was sitting in front of his bed, then went into it. As the day wore on he did go outside but we coaxed him back into the quonset (it was cold). He was very wobbly on his feet. Later on, Waldy found him lying on the floor so he made him comfortable and covered him with a blanket. At bedtime, he looked in on him once more, Boots lifted his head as if to say goodbye, then passed not long afterwards. It goes without saying that we are very upset at losing yet another one of our beloved cats. Boots was with us for 3 years. We don’t know what happened to him as this came on very suddenly. We buried him today. Click here to view Boots’ page.
