17 years is a wonderfully long life. I'm sorry to hear about it, but it sounds like you have a good outlook.
Thank you sir, I am hanging in there. Need to get out and take some photos
I'm really sorry about that Jim. I know how you feel. my cat died about this time last year, it really hurts for a while. 17 years is a long time! mine was 10, and perfectly healthy, they never figured out why she got so sick so fast.
Thanks Bill, its never easy
