Well, I just got off the phone with my mom a little bit ago, and found out that Buster, the nearly 18-year-old cat, has passed away.
He was a good cat, even if he would sleep in my dresser drawer on occassion:
When I was at my parent's house last weekend, I gave him a hug, told him I loved him and not to die. Apparently, he had other plans. He lived a good life though, and that makes me happy.
So long, good buddy. I hope wherever you are now if full of cans of tuna, comfy green ottomans, and lots of sunny concrete to sun yourself on.
