A farewell to Minnow, 2001-2013 (Toronto, Day 160)

Many of you probably already know that Minnow hasn’t been all that well for the past year, so I hope this isn’t too much of a shock. She declined a bit last week, got worse this week, and just now at the vet’s we agreed her time had come.

Here she is springing about in Vancouver a couple years ago.

As Rumble is such a jealous little bully, and we are so determined to spoil him, we will be violating our two-cat policy, and won’t be seeking a new baby. He is, as of now, our only child.

About Alyx Dellamonica

After twenty-two years in Vancouver, B.C., I've recently moved to Toronto Ontario, where I make my living writing science fiction and fantasy; I also review books and teach writing online at UCLA. I'm a legally married lesbian, a coffee snob, and I wake up at an appallingly early hour.

  1. I am so sorry to hear that Minnow’s gone. You and Kelly did what you could and what was right. Thank you for sharing the video–I never met Minnow, but I love her little white toes and tail-tip. May Ruble long flourish and the memory of Minnow remain ever green.

  2. I meant Rumble. Much sympathy, again, and hugs.

  3. Paul Weimer says:

    I’m so sorry, Alyx.

  4. My sympathies. They do latch on to the heartstrings.

  5. So sorry to hear this Alyx, my love goes to you and Kelly, I know how hard it is to make that decision.
