Rainbow bridge

I'm so sorry I had to put you to sleep. I spent ages trying to find a way to allow you to make your own decision regarding your fate but you're a cat and you can't always tell me exactly what you want. And you were succumbing to lung cancer. And I finally decided I couldn't watch you asphyxiate to death. You were my best friend. It was hard to hold you while you died but I wanted the last thing you ever knew to be that I loved you and was right by your side. You gave me many wonderful years of friendship and happiness. I'll never forget you. I promise I'll take care of the Turnip and Baby Zen. I love you, Rico. —Mommy
