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.

I was very sorry to hear this. He was a cat of character, was Ish. He did everything on his terms.

He was a wonderful kitty, and will be remembered by everyone who knew him.

Take care of yourself.

So sorry to read of Ish passing. I know from experience how hard it is to come home to this. He was a handsome boy and knew it, it just shines through the pictures, especially the bottom one in the patch of sunlight.

(((HUGS))) for you both and (((skritches))) for Horus.
