In a few minutes I get to dig a grave.
Our oldest cat "Mr. Bartok" is not doing well. He's 16 and pretty heavy. He stopped eating and hasn't being using the litter box. We've gone to the vet and the only recommendation he can make is we might try tube feeding. That involves forcing a tube down the cat's throat and force feeding him. It's very traumatic and Mr. Bartok has always had a sensitive stomach.

I hate this. We're going to euthanize him today.

I get to go dig a grave.

I'm sorry Ser Scot. It's always hard, even when the decision is the right one.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sometimes being an adult just plain sucks. You have to make the decision, dig the grave, explain to the kids.

Be sure to give yourself plenty of time for that last cuddle.
