Ode to Humphrey

By Patricia Villers of Ansonia, originally written June 13, 2007

Humphrey's in Heaven
Our furry little guy died this afternoon on the kitchen floor. Now he is in a box. And Kid Two dug a hole in our backyard, and he and I just had a burial. I certainly am glad I wasn't alone in the house when it happened. My mother and both of my children were here too. We adopted Humphrey when a friend who had eight cats asked us to take him. Humphrey had strayed into his yard and our friend thought he needed another home. We said OK. That was 1999. At the time the vet said Humphrey looked to be about 14 months old. So he was about nine years old today, when he died and went to cat heaven. I don't know if I want to go into all the details here. I immediately called the vet when I sensed by the way Humphrey was acting that he was dying. It all happened quite fast. This is my first cat, so I never saw this before.
