18 years and 26 days

Last photo of my sweet Ben, taken on Saturday, the last day he was mobile.

He was a part of our family for 18+ years. Almost my entire adult life.
These last 'bonus' 26 days have been filled with lots of attention, holding, stroking of fur, scratching of chins, and I love yous. I can't believe he survived the last 7 days without food, 2 without water. He just didn't want to go.
Thanks for being the best kitty ever, sweet gentle Ben.
We will always love you.
You will always be my first baby.
