togusa: sadness

My littlest fluff is gone.

Thank you very much to everyone who left a kind, sympathetic comment on my last post. And thank you also to those who read and felt sympathy but didn't have energy to comment. I hope no one will be offended if I don't respond to them individually. It's hard for me to look at them en masse without bursting into tears at the moment.

I will completely understand if you don't want to read the following, which contains a description of Sputnik's death. It was important to me to write it out as part of the grieving process, but it's not by any means pleasant to read even if I have left out the details. Hence, it's under a cut and all comments are screened.

Telstar brought us half a squirrel last night. (Usually we are only presented with trophy tails.) He & Sputnik used to share their bigger kills, so I think he was confused about why he was being left to eat the whole thing.
