Amanda’s cat, Sunny, whom the Mercer family has had for eleven years or so, was put to sleep today. Apparently she had some pretty bad cancer. It was on her spine, one of her lungs was almost non-existent and her liver had just about calcified. She wasn’t eating and she was using the bathroom downstairs because, as they discovered, she didn’t have the energy to go upstairs. Sunnycat and I had a funny relationship. Sometimes she’d like me and sometimes she would hiss at me and try to bite me. It probably goes back to one time when I threw our chihuahua Bruce on her to get them to antagonize each other. I don’t think she ever forgave me.
