Frarm the Wooman:
Very sad news from Cape Town today. My mom called, a couple of hours after landing, to say that she asked my dad to take Kehdi to the vet, to be put to sleep. Kehdi has been frail for a long time, but eating. She had lost her sight a while ago. She did not recognize or respond to my mom at all when she returned home today from her trip to New York, and it was very clear that her physical condition was not one in which she could continue to live with any comfort. When I can, I will write a more fitting tribute to this wonderful little talking cat. She was small, but unforgettable. My poor mom couldn't be with Kehdi these last two weeks, and I know that she was very worried about her, and knew this decision was not far off. But so soon? This is not good news to come home to.
If any of her admirers would like to send a note to Kehdi's Ma, I will send the mail address. Please email Estorbo at estorboloco(@)gmail(dot)com.
