He accompanied me for 12 years, shared my rooms, shared my everyday life. This really special black tomcat, large, slim, elegant, full of character. He was as close to me as I was fond of him. Yesterday he suffered severe pain by a thrombosis of the abdominal aorta. The vet couldn't help him, and so he was euthanised today while he laid on my lap. Part of me then died, too.
