Goodbye, Carvey Harvey

I'll apologize up front for the depressing post but it was a huge and sad event in my life, and definitely worth writing about. On Monday, November 5th we had to put our beloved kitty down after 12 wonderful years. He had suffered from chronic renal failure for some time, but last weekend it took a dramatic turn for the worse and he was no longer able to do basic functions such as eat or walk. It was a tough decision, but in our hearts we knew it was the right one.

We adopted Carvey from a local humane society when he was 6 months old. Our orignial plan was to get a small kitten, and to this day I am not sure why we went into the room where Carvey was. As soon as we walked in we heard a loud noise. Carvey had jumped off the ledge and hit his head on the door of his cage.  I guess he picked us just as much as we picked him. We knew instantly this cat had some personality...and indeed he did. He was such a ham, always making us laugh, roll our eyes and sometimes frustrating the heck out of us. He will be missed but we will always cherish the time we had with him.
