11:39 pm: Brief Aside...

We are home...tomorrow, when I have slept...I will finish the Hong Kong post that got interrupted when the plane came and write just a little more. Then, I am going to take the China posts and put them in order on my website, should anyone want to see them again.

On an entirely different note, I think my cat died while I was away. This is not a surprise. I did not think he was going to make it...but I didn't actually think to say good-bye to him. Wish I had. He was a very good cat! Almost sixteen years old. He was the last of three siblings who were my wonderful pets for many many years. There is still some hope that he is still around, but...

Sigh....

Sorry, Jagi. It's hard when you can't say goodbye. He may be around yet.

No. Mom says she never saw him after I left. I really was surprised he made it that far. I just wished I'd had a last quiet commune with him and told him what a great cat he has been these last nearly 16 years.

No one watered my plants either...that was a surprise because two people had promised to do it. One did not make it...but I think the other two will be okay.

He may have just gone off for his last moments. I understand cats do that if they can. He did know you loved him.

Even if it wasn't a surprise, it's still a sad thing to come home to.

But I'm sure he knew you thought he was a good cat.

I think he did. He was named Graymalkin, after the Irish King of Cats. In his day, he was huge. The last year or so, he was smaller.

He had a wonderful healing of an ungainly illness two years ago. I was very glad for that.

He will be missed!
