Going to be an Interesting General Election Season (plus Caturday)

When the main selling point for the three major candidates (Trump, Clinton & Cruz) is essentially "I'm less despicable than the other guy!"

The polling seems to focus on Clinton, Cruz, Rubio and Trump. Guess they're eliminating Sanders and they think that the Rubot may get a new OS upload and get back in the race.

Anyway, I went home for lunch, since I live less than ten minutes from the office. I went through the drive-thru and bought a couple of junior whoppers from Burger King. In the past, Jake has liked it when I'd break off some pieces and let him have them.

Not today. He sniffed at them, then he snuggled under the top cover of the bed, like this:


and went back to sleep.

UPDATE: He ate a little for dinner. And if we could add another day or two into this week between today and tomorrow, that's be great.

UPDATE II: It's 9PM. Jake was on my bed this afternoon and evening. I laid there with him, read and listened to a couple of podcasts. Jake must have gotten tired of that much togetherness, for he went out to a chair in the living room for another snooze. It has a heated cat pad on it.

If you've been through this before, you know how much it sucks.

This.

Is why I read you.

And I hope that Jake is back in form soon.

Borepatch, sadly, that is not to be. Jake will cross over the Bridge tomorrow afternoon.

It is truly difficult, and it does suck. However, I found great solace in knowing the correct decision was made for a friend. Would that we all could expect a calm and comfortable departure. It will, as you well know, be hard for a little while, but then the knowledge that your friend is not in pain or suffering will comfort you. Try your best for some rest, and we all will try to send you strength.

It sucks like nothing else in the world. But it's the last act of love that we can show them when it's time.

I've been there a couple of times and it's not easy. I'll say a little prayer for you and Jake.

Comrade Misfit, I'm so sorry. They leave a hole in our hearts.
