And following up on that last post, I'm writing this one because I just read something terrible on my LJ friends page.
Basically, I friend people on Livejournal who I find interesting, whose writing I like and that I enjoy reading snippets of every day. One woman, who I found entirely by link-browsing, had a very ill cat. I have never met this woman. I have never met this cat. But over the last year or so, I've come to follow along with her cat's health problems, as she blogged about them.
And this was a very brave cat, one that put up with much medical treatment, and towards the end, was clearly dying.
And I've just read the post she's written about he's just passed away in his sleep.
I would never have known about her or her cat or how fascinatingly brave he was, without the internet and blogs and Livejournal.
So while I'm terribly sad that he's died and I'm a wee bit teary, I'm also very glad that I got to know their stories.
I'm off to hug Zoe now.
