FRIDAY CAT BLOGGING....This week's cat blogging is being turned over to Internet Ronin, whose cat Phoebe died on Thursday:

I returned yesterday from what was probably my most enjoyable trip to Japan in the last decade to find my feline friend near death. She had not eaten in a week, despite the petsitter's offer of everything from fresh tuna to ice cream.

When I picked up her tiny, emaciated body, she was desperately trying to purr but the sound that came forth was so heart-wrenching that it was unbearable. It was now time to say good-bye. I made the arrangements with the veterinarian and returned home for the first time in 14 years without "my big baby" rushing forth from some hiding place or sunny corner to greet me....

Read the whole thing here and go leave a comment of condolence.
