Goodbye, old friend.

As often as we joked about him being "the cat that refuses to die," we all love him.

My dad just walked out the door with him, and Cholla will be gone.
I wanted to let him have some dignity, so I photographed him in the dark.

This cat is around 17 years old, all but blind. He's been with us longer than two of my siblings.

When he coughs, I look around to find the senile, old man who wandered into our house.

It's time.

We will even miss his drooling.
