Ranger.

Good evening, it is Tuesday.

This afternoon we finally had to put our cat Ranger down. Ranger has been one of our cats for over 15 years! That's right, since before Lillie was even born. Joe and Ranger were adopted on March 4th 2002, even Preston hardly remembers a time without Ranger. But Preston does remember the day we adopted Joe and Ranger, he [Preston] was sick and dehydrated, and will tell you about the 11 times he barfed, including at the house we adopted the cats from. But that is a different story. Joe died about a year ago.
This is the last photo I ever took of Ranger. He had pretty much stopped eating a few days ago and was not a healthy cat. But he was always very nice. Preston came with me to the veterinarian clinic. The clinic was very nice, but it never easy to put a pet down. Here are a few photos that Maren or the kids took of Ranger:





See you tomorrow.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I was glad to see those pictures. You guys took great care of him and he was part of the family for a long time. Very sad. Goodbye, little Ranger.

It's clear that Flareon is the star of the show at your house, but we were glad to get a few glimpses of Ranger during our trip. You guys gave him a good life...
