My thoughtful vet phoned to say that my cat was not dead, just asleep, permanently.

What a sweet way of putting it. Yes totally agree, not dead just moved on to his tenth life of immortality, lucky cat. Nice Epigram Tom...Maria :)

Reminded me of a joke I heard years ago, a sargeant major goes into a bullet and shouts at the soldiers to stand up if they've got parents, then said to jones "sit down" talk about tact .

Hi Tom, I've had cats in the past. But I don't have any pets now. But I do remember the sadness I felt when I lost them, it's like losing a family member. This form is similar to the monku form.Well done:-) Alexis

Thank you Alexis, have had to have pets put to sleep due to illness and you're right, they do become part of the family. Tom
