The vet who came to the house said her kidneys were probably failing and while there were options (pills and such) we weren't willing to spend the money and prolong her misery. The vet agreed this was the best option. We had been telling the kids for the last few months that she was sick and would probably die soon. They have taken the news quite well and while they tell us they miss her, they haven't been too upset.
So, Freak: The White Cat, you were a great cat. Lazy as a cat should be, obsessed with your food, and demanding of at least one-third of our bed space. You hated my mother and went to any length to terrorize her whenever she came to visit (which Matt really loved). Your antics kept us entertained for the last ten years and you will be missed by our entire family. You will be remembered forever, partially because of the hair you have left behind in our house!

|This bed is all for me, right?|
|Not the smartest of creatures by far.|
|This cat lived in all three territories!|
|She dreamed of more travel, but could never bring herself to leave the north.|
|Starving at all times.|

|Freak- friend to all wildlife. Well, dead ones anyways.|
