I am glad 2012 is gone. On November 6th, my good friend Shadow died. He had a tumor in his tummy. He was my good friend, and was about 14 years old. I was closer with him than i was to Apollo, and so his death saddened me these last three months. Shadow was always good natured and loved his friends.
My human, Jessica, was sad. Losing two good friends to death in less than a year is hard. But, the same day my human took Da Boy, as we called Shadow, to The Man With Big Arms, she came back with a kitten named Zeus. He is a real hellion. I was miffed, at first, but I can take him. Mostly, he plays with Thor and bothers Kiwi. He is scared by my size and meow.
Here is a picture of Shadow:
Here is a photo of that little hellion:
He is less furry than Shadow, and quite a bit bigger now. This photo was taken on the day Shadow died, I think.
I am still sad, but it is nice to know that Da Bub and Da Boy look down on us from Kitty heaven.
