Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?

It has literally been 4 years since I posted in my live journal. I only logged in today because I needed to find out Kim's exact birthdate. This morning at midnight I had to make the decision to put her to sleep. Earlier in the evening she threw a blood clot and was suffering from pain and paralysis. So. I reluctantly made the decision to let her go. Which was as awful as could be expected.
I still have her sister Ruby, but it feels like another piece of my mom is gone. I'm really grateful for the 14 years I had with Kim, especially the last 8 of which I was particularly close to her. I have decided as a result that after these cats are gone, I will not be getting another. We have too many as it is.
I'm really glad I had Sal with me last night, I know how much he cared for her. This is the first time he'd ever had to experience something like this. He wasn't introduced to cats until he met me.
To catch any of my friends who might still remember me on this thing, I got married almost two years ago. We just got approved to buy a house and I have the best job I've ever had in my life right now. Woo Payroll!
A couple of weeks ago I got to see Bill Clinton speak in Fresno and then not long after Hillary. That was very exciting.
I'm currently watching the first season of NCIS on netflix to take my mind off things.
