as until recently i was a long term foster for a cat rescue, several kittehs have come and gone. some got adopted, some came to live with me until they passed from age/illness, and my own personal kittehs all passed from illness. i adopted two of my fosters, hugh (who you've met before) and paprika who joined me the summer of 2018.
fraggle was with me almost every day of her life from 12 weeks old until kidney failure took her in 2018 just before her 16th birthday. by that point she had survived cancer (with hind left leg amputation), and gone blind from high blood pressure, which may have been related to her asthma medication. i still miss her terribly.
valentine came to live with me as a long term foster with the rescue because she only liked 5 people on the planet and two of them were me and my roommate. she was ok with a frequent houseguest but ended up falling for that houseguest's dog, rusty, seen above at their first meeting and below a few minutes later. whenever i put fresh sheets on the guest room bed she'd go wait on the bed, staring out the window at the driveway, until rusty (and his mom) arrived. in 2017 she passed at the age of 17, also from kidney failure. unfortunately, kidney problems are pretty common in older domestic cats.
