The cat has diabetes.
Frail and irascible – Fox is a curmudgeon of a cat.
Last week his fifteen years and insulin treatments caught up with him.
He collapsed and there I was, driving to the vet in the middle of the night. I rushed through the doors, elected to resuscitate if needed, and sat waiting to tell my daughters that the oldest of our pets had passed.
Trumped by a cat.
P.S. Fox pulled through and blames me for his ordeal.
