so Tom is going to the vet again. He's started making these wheezing noises when he breathes and he can't walk very well. I picked him up to take him down to his cat carrier and honestly he weighs maybe 5 or 6 pounds. I'm so... I don't think it's hit me yet that this could be the end. I just remember that first day at the animal shelter, when my mom put her hand up to his cage and he just threw himself at it, rubbing against it and purring. How the woman working there picked him up and just brushed his belly for like five minutes and he looked so happy. I remember when he used to hide in our laundry room; and then I remember when he first ventured out. I remember getting Dippy, and Tom taking one look at that kitten and turning around and walking downstairs. I love this old cat. He's one of the only consistently loving beings I have in my life (as pets often are) and I can't imagine life without him. We thought he was doing so much better after he stopped needing daily insulin... and now he's... just...

I can't handle this.
