He passed away earlier today.
I had him for twenty years. He was born feral, but quickly learned to like being petted and being held.
He had a stroke Thursday morning, and another the same afternoon. He's been in ER until today.
Nerissa and I are in a state of shock right now. I know this is for the best, and I know Brownie is at peace, but it's still a challenge to let go.
I wish I had something wise to say here. I realize death is part of the life experience, but right now it feels like the part that sucks.
I'm focusing on the joy Brownie gave me for twenty years -- first with my late ex-wife Marian and then with Nerissa over the last few years -- and I am grateful this loving Maine Coon came into our lives.
Thank you for all your loving thoughts.
