Picture taken December 25, 2007 (long before Dennis invaded the North Pole)
Six months ago, our little mess-maker left us.
These pictures were taken just under a week before Dennis went to the Rainbow Bridge. Looking at them now, at his face and his eyes, it seems apparent in a way it wasn’t then that Dennis was worn out from battling osteosarcoma and IBD.
The farther out we get from it, the more we’re sure we did the right thing by bringing him in when we did. It’s the hardest balance to strike; we’ve been too late before; we don’t want to be too late again. With Trixie, we almost waited too long. Almost. But with Dennis, difficult as the decision was to make, we feel like we let him go at the right time, and that he had the best last visit, with his favorite veterinarian, out of all our animals.
We know you’re running free beyond the Rainbow Bridge now, Dennis, but if you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by and see the messes the Hipster Kitties make from time to time.
Obviously no one is as good at making messes as Dennis was, but the kitties do their best.
Big Mouth: “Hamburgers!”
Mouse: “What I don’t quite get is your angle in doing all this for the Hipsters.”
Producer Smurf: “Angle? What angle? You think I can’t just smurf something nice for my friends?”
Mr. Nibbles: “You look a little glum, Chaplin.”
Chaplin: “I’m just disappointed we came all the way to Oregon but we never saw the painted ladies.” Read More
