Something to Hopefully Make You Sad

Hey, you all! Tiny Elvis is dead and buried. I had to put her to sleep this morning and then buried her up here at the airport where she can watch the planes land and take off. It's so sad, as she was a good cat and lived a long, good life. I just could not have her ruin our house any more. Mom is not adjusted to it and didn't want me to do it, but I took a stand and now it is done. I hope mom will speak to me tonight! I felt like Rubin of Rubin and Ed, going around the airport perimeter fence looking for the Wright place to inter poor ol Tiny. I am in near tears writing this. Love you guys, see you tomorrow. Dad

You did the Wright thing pops. Tiny was a very loved cat, and was cute and cuddly and was a total spooky spaz sometimes. I can't believe she was like 18 years old!! She was still so Tiny! I will miss her. But, she also pooped right at my feet the other day while I was at my computer... That doesn't fly around me.
Mom will be happy that she doesn't have to clean the litter box and get out the green machine every couple days.
I laughed so hard at your Rubin and Ed comment!
"My cat can eat a WHHHOOOOOOLE WATERMELON!!"

R.I.P, Tiny E.

Ah, Tiny E. Good long life you had. Pooping right at people's feet is a little crazy, I think it was time. You did the wright thing dad, I am sorry it was hard.

Well dad, I'm glad it's all done and over with. That decision sucks so bad! Cat, remember when we had to do that to Liz? Man that sucked. I hope mom is okay. Please give me a hug for her. I'll see her tomorrow and give her a hug too. Maybe a Neil Diamond concert is just what she needs! By they way, Cam has come down with a terrible flu today. He doesn't know if he'll make it to tomorrow's concert. Would Scott or Haley be willing to take his ticket?

I'll never forget the day I got Tiny E. I was working at 7-11 and this woman brought in a box of kittens that she was planning on giving away at the park. She came in to buy her kids Slurpees and stuff. She put the box on the counter and I looked inside and said "I'll take this one". I had like 3 more hours to work and I put Tiny in the office and shut the door and she slept on a pile of smocks until my shift was over.

Thanks for your support, guys. Mom did not say a word to me at lunch at about 1:30. I hope she was just in a hurry or something. I have been out to the grave site twice this afternoon. I built a rock formation over the ground. How stupid is that?

Cat said...

That's not stupid at all. It's the cutest, saddest thing ever.

Sue said...

Dad, that is not stupid, it is sweet. Mom will eventually fogive you. You making sure Tiny's little grave is okay is so sweet! You should take mom out there so she can see it.

Poor Elvis. She is much happier now. It was definitely time, you did the right thing Grandpa. It is sad though. I hope that Grandma realizes that you did it out of love and it is what needed to happen. It was the unselfish thing to do. Sue, I bet my dad will take the ticket. He is going and wouldn't have anything to do anyway. We will talk to him and let you know.

That is so sweet dad! Is mom speaking to you yet? If not, we'll set her wright tomorrow...
