Thank you for all your kind words and prayers for my Commi Cat. Sadly Commi's condition never improved. Pain became a part of his daily exsistence and not being able to enjoy even the simplist pleasures, like wrapping up in a warm quilt~ we decided to end his pain and his life.
He did get to do some of his favorite things this morning; good snacks, snuggling in the "big" bed and when it came time for him to go he went wrapped in a quilt I made that only he appreciated. Good friends are hard to find, but ones who greet you with warmth even on the worst of days, ones who wait patiently until you are done with appointed tasks knowing that cuddling awaits are more precious than any amount of money. I can't see myself ever having such an enthusiastic helper in my love of quilting, but I do have the memories of blocks rearranged, spools of thread chased and quiet naps taken together under the quilts we made.
