Sorry to hear that, Tony. We've got three cats here and two dogs, and it'd be
hard losing any of them (we did lose a dog last year, and a cat the year
before that). I'm typing this* while trying to balance a spaniel in my lap
(he's the only one of our critters who does the lap thing and he's a bit big
for the job, but at least he makes a good excuse for my typos).
* on a Model M, for obligatory on-topicness.
I'd suggest checking freecycle for a cat or kitten when the time comes - I
always figure that the ones at pet shelters at least have some sort of chance,
but the freecycle freebies are the ones in real danger of being abandoned.
