Run free, sweet Olive… you almost made it to 17

This is another ‘backpost’ that I am not actually putting up until way after the fact… I feel bad that  I didn’t say something here at the time, though I did put it up on Facebook, but we were still reeling from losing Simon when this came out of nowhere.

RIP Olive

We lost Olive suddenly after an intense flare-up of a chronic intestinal problem she had. It shouldn’t have been unexpected, but it was still a shock. Maybe her and Simon are cuddled up together in a sunbeam somewhere now. Olive had her issues, and her relationship with the other animals was a big source of unrest in the household for many years, but she was a sweet cat who was deeply empathetic – if someone was upset, she was always right there to comfort them.

She had a long life and she was in chronic pain from her old injuries, but she deserved a better death than to be rushed to the vet in agony. I am so, so sorry, Olive. May you run free and be whole.
