Our darling Ish cat passed away last Thursday, from suspected pancreatic cancer, while we were at Worldcon. groliffe was splendid in caring for him at the end, and the Cambridge Vet School was the best place he could have been in the circumstances. He knew and liked it there, and they loved him.
We are heartbroken. I never would have gone to Sasquan if I'd thought he was this ill. Horus, who adored him, is hunting and calling, and wanting lots of cuddles from us and from Miss Telzey. We are doing our best to reassure him. Ish was a lovely, sociable, determined boy who had many adventures in his 12 and 1/2 years, made many friends (including half a mile away at the local gas showroom) and had Views on everything. He was the cat who chose us, and we will miss him forever.

My sympathies. It comes to all of us, when our furred friends travel on but that never makes it easier, no matter how loved and cared for they were. I've no doubt that Ish was adored and understood that the world was ordered just to please him...

Oh, I am so, so sorry. That's always hard, and to have it happen while you were away is terrible. Condolences to you all.
