Someday

We lost Hal this morning. He was my big orange boy for almost 15 years. He’s our second Foster Fail and the last former feral in our colony.

This photo is haunting me today. It’s one of my last shots of him. He looks so content, and yet ready to face whatever will come.

We were unable to be with him at the end, but the vet tells us it was quick and painless. I know he knew he was loved, and I hope he wasn’t scared. I have to believe he’s with his best friend and brother Noah now.

Someday has arrived and I hate it. Godspeed, buddy. It’s never long enough.


I owe this blog a lot of eulogies. We lost Sebastian 2 years ago and I have never been able to write about him. Clarabel and Saffron both left us suddenly and too soon. All were special; all were loved dearly, and all are missed.

I don’t know what else to say right now. The Rainbow Bridge is a crowded place this year.

One response to “Someday”

  1. […] there it was. A diagonal partition dividing the interior into two compartments. Someday in the hopefully distant future, Noah and Hal will lie shoulder to shoulder […]
