Our big, beautiful, black cat, Jamil, is gone. This is the second time in my life I could look back a few days and know that my cat was saying goodye. With his usual dignity and grace he departed. During the past few months he had become thinner and all his whiskers had turned white, a most remarkable feature on an otherwise purely sable colored cat. He had been happy, comfortable, and content. We are so blessed to have had him in our lives for such a long time. Thank you Jamil.
