Yesterday I got a postcard in the mail from Animal Control telling me that Jason is due for his rabies shot. I had gotten him a 3-year rabies shot right before he died. So I had to call Animal Control and tell them that he's dead. It was all business until I blubbered, "He was the best cat I've ever known." There was a pause, and the Animal Control woman said, "I'm sorry for your loss." I felt a little ridiculous crying over a cat who died three years ago, but I was very attached.
