RIP Joey Chan

Joey Chan, the remaining domestic feline at Casa Willett, started having some disturbing symptoms in the last two weeks or so, initially showing up as an occasional diminished appetite. By the middle of last week it was getting serious, and by yesterday it was time to see the vet. The results were grave and it was pretty clear that Joey’s remaining time with us was short. Since our society treats our pets with compassion, we did what was necessary to make sure she passed on peacefully and painlessly.

I’m grateful that her medical problems only manifested themselves very recently and didn’t result in any prolonged problems or discomfort for her. She was almost fourteen years old and had a good life. She will very much be missed.

    • Thank you. She was my daughters’ cat and I ended up being her human because they’ve moved off. Like most cats, she was always an annoyance and underfoot when she wasn’t sleeping in that bay window, but I still find myself looking down constantly while walking to make sure I don’t step on her.
