This is Mitch.  Sorry, folks!  There is no photo tip or exercise for today.  Our 16-year-old rescue cat is fading away and her only solace is my lap, which makes it difficult to put together one of these posts for you.  I sincerely apologize, but her needs come first right now.

Imagecraft Bootcamp will resume next week.

    I am so sorry. I am sure you are bringing her comfort in her time of need. My heart goes out to both of you. I find the only solace in such times of grief is what an honor it is to be a part of another’s life.

    Ssorry to hear that Mitch. My cat is nearing the end too, though not yet peering over the precipice. Even so she has become much more needy of a lap or shoulder and intolerant of typing at the same time. They deserve all we can give back when they need it.

      We’ve given her all we can… all her special treats, keeping the house extra warm, making my lap available as much as she wants it. It’s been tough seeing her little sassy self decline into a withdrawn shivering little thing.

    Thanks for your effort in this tough moment to us, your readers; it happened to me a time ago and I know the strongs feelings and desires to help them to be stronger. I hope she can get a way to feel better.

    My heart is breaking for you. My kitty is about the same age and I worry about him. Your cat is beautiful and definitely comes first. Hold her close. You will stay in my thoughts.

      Hate to say it, but we may have put her down tonight. She briefly improved for a couple of days, but has since declined due to respiratory difficulties. It’s a quality of life issue now… 😦

      Oh Mitch 😦 Sorry for not replying sooner, not been too well. It’s so hard to have to make the decision in the end. I remember it very well with my beloved Pan. He was getting really bad respiratory problems from a heart condition and I just couldn’t put him through any more pain. I held him in my arms and told him how much he was loved as he passed peacefully. My heart was breaking but there was no cure and I just couldn’t make someone I loved so much suffer anymore. I hope you’re doing ok under such difficult circumstances?

      She’s a real sweetie. I don’t know how long she’ll hold on. She improved for a few days after this post, but now has a nasty cold that has her constantly sneezing.
