Joe Black  
Our cat died last night. We sat down to dinner, our three cats lounging around us as they do. Tim looked over to Joe, who was asleep. Both Tim and I have fallen into a habit over the past few months, of watching Joe. Because of his illness, he’s been having a great deal of trouble breathing. So when he falls asleep and lies there so still, Tim and I have a habit of watching him, paused, until we see him taking a breath.
Alix had made dinner last night, and we were discussing whether or not it could be classified as one of her best, when I glanced behind me to Joe. And paused. And waited. Tim said “I saw him breath a little while ago”. “Thank goodness”, says I “I’m having a heartattack here”. I glance over to Joe again. His eyes are open and I’m still not seeing his sides move.
