Today, I had to let my cat Jazz be put down. It was one of the hardest things I had to do. 14 years ago, I rescued him from an abusive neighbor. I don't know exactly how old he really is but I guess he is around 16 to 18 years old.
He was the protector of my other cat Chance. He would protect him when other cats from the neighborhood would attack Chance. He always reminded me of Shadow from the Disney movie "Homeward Bound" ironically the other two cats are called Chance & Sassy and they act just like the animals in the movie. Chance is now the leader and he still acts like a kitten waking me up 4:30am every day. He will never be able to fill Jazz's paws but I really wouldn't want him to. I love you Jazz, miss you always.
