Today marked the end for our oldest cat Boomer. We rescued him from a Petsmart in Indianapolis in August 1998. He was probably 2 or 3 years old then. Boomer traveled with us from Indiana to Virginia, then to California & back to Virginia. Boomer had lost a lot of weight over the past 2 months, and we couldn't bear to see him suffer any more.

Boomer had gone deaf a few years ago but still had a nose for bacon & meat off the grill up until his last couple of weeks. We'll miss the cat.
