edit: Merlyn is now gone. /end edit
One of the family cats has cancer. I’m not sure what really to say.
His name is Merlyn. He’s an adorable, sweet tuxedo patterned cat with white paws who was found as a kitten under a car, saved and brought in to be one of the members of the family to bonk his head against you for attention, meow in a most pitiful way, love despite all things. He never really seemed to bite, fight, or get mad, he’d just politely walk away with a prehensile tail that would half the time forget itself. Even while he was sitting down, it would sometimes hang like a Christmas ornament, suspended in time.
To see him lately has been hard, he’s gone from lazy, playful, and adorably demanding to slow, languid, with his spine protruding from his back as if it were some Alien, hobbling painfully over the floor to where he sits in a drugged stupor in the bathroom.
I really…just…don’t know what to say…
