I should have been posting here – pictures of the two pairs of socks I knit during the trip out to Atlanta and back, and a picture of my complete Sockapaltwoza socks. But since we returned it’s been hard to work up enthusiasm for knitting, or for anything else.
Allegra, the little grey kitty who posed for the picture on the main page of this knitting journal, has been fighting kidney disease for about a year now, but in the last week or two it was obvious she’d turned a corner and things were going rapidly downhill. I took her in for tests yesterday and they showed she was pretty much in complete kidney failure.
One of the hardest decisions to make is to determine whether you are keeping the animal alive because it is what is best for them, or because you cannot bear the thought of being without them. This morning the housecall vet came over and I held her in my arms as she gave her the injections to help her slip away.
Rest in peace, little girl.
How do I even begin to describe how much I am going to miss you?
