You know from the title this is going to be a sad post because I am crying as I type it. My Jag kitty passed away Monday morning. He had been sick for a while with his heart. He took a turn for the worse on Saturday and we knew that he didn't have much time left. We decided that we would take him to the vet Monday morning to end his suffering.
Mark said his goodbyes to him. We placed him in his crate, then in the passengers seat so he could see me and I could pet him. While driving him to the vets office, I always had to keep my fingers in the crate to let him know I was there. I have had to do that since he was a kitten. Halfway to the vets office, Jag gave my fingers a final head butt and then he passed away silently in his crate. I am so thankful he passed on his own. Even though I was headed to the vets office to end suffering, I think that this would be harder.
I just thought I would share a few of my favorite pictures of him with you. At the end you can read a funny Jag story....

He was a skittish kitty...my housekeeper cleaned my house for 5 years when she asked me when did you get the yellow kitty? I had to laugh because I said "Before the dogs...you have never seen him in 5 years????" He was a good hider!!!
