Yesterday was a mixed day. We prepared for Y’s sixth birthday party, and were at the vet where our 17yr old cat was put down.

Our last living cat, head of the household since October 2020, last week enjoying a nap in the garden.

Packaging Y’s presents, and blowing up balloons in the evening. As expected she stood fully dressed by our bed this morning at 6:30 to start her birthday party, so we were right in not thinking we could do the prep early in the morning.
