Today while I was posting my last post I realized I never wrote about what happened to Luke.  On April 21st Craig and I took him to the vet to be put to sleep.  We were very sad to do so but we felt that it was time.  He had lost so much weight and was no longer eating.  It felt cruel to try to keep him alive any longer.  Craig and I went in together and the staff was very caring.  They let me hold him.  I thought that would put him more at ease than being on a hard metal exam table.  I cried of course.

So here are some photos of my kitty, Luke. (They are of order but you get the point.)
Craig and Luke right before his deployment.

I had some technical difficulties finding some of my pictures so here are a few more:
 Luke loved to lay on my back.
 This was the beginning of Luke's hatred for dogs.
 Wow, he looks really fat here.  Well, he used to be really fat!
Luke and Jazmyn. (Before he didn't much like other animals)
