Just back from 2 weeks in Holguin, Cuba. Flight back was at an ungodly hour, and so I was back home around 3:00 AM this Saturday morrow
Temperature when arriving was around -20°C / -4°F but on the bright side there was little traffic at that hour.
On a sad note, our little feline roommate Scarlett had to be euthanized on March 28th. A close friend of ours stays at our place and catsits our girls when we travel. Before we left Scarlett seemed healthy and active, she was eating with good appetite and being her usual attention-seeker. She had lost some weight, but we thought it was a thyroid problem and had an appointment with the vet on March 29th.
A few days after we left, our friend noticed that Scarlett wasn't eating and spent all her time sleeping. She brought her to the vet where, after X-rays and tests, two vets diagnosed an aggressive and incurable cancer. Our friend thus decided to put an end to Scarlett's suffering, for which we are grateful even though we feel an absence in the house.
We adopted Scarlett after she was abandoned when she was over 5 years old, which is pretty much a death-sentence for a pet. With good food, proper healthcare, and lots of affection she went from a fearful little thing to an active and happy cat
In the upcoming weeks I will post some pictures from Cuba, life goes on and I am grateful we had 7 years with a little soul that gave us tons of love and affection.
