24 Days in Alaska, Mr Kitty Put To Sleep



  Today was a sad one for us. Mr Kitty developed internal organ failure and was in fast decline. The hard decision was made to end his life gracefully and without pain. Many tears shed by both of us.

  Civil twilight for 28 days started today and it will not be dark at night for that time. It was daylight last night anyway as I stayed up with Mr Kitty.

  We have been taking walks at mountain lakes for slowly getting back into exercise. Eklutna Lake in the lowest I have seen in all my years living here. It is the water supply for the city and whirlpools are forming over the intake pipe, not good for sure.

  I dug the mower out and have started mowing the front yard, Many sticks had to be removed as a big Winter storm left the yard a mess.

  No helicopter or airplane flights yet, have the promise of both, but time will tell if they happen.

  We have enjoyed about five Sunny days. The weather has been great.

  1. A difficult decision to make about Mr. Kitty, but no doubt the right one.

    Do they have a back up plan for water? Rationing maybe?

    1. Thanks for your thoughts, many tears shed. He had a great life.
      They have wells scattered around town, however using them draws salt water into the ground and that kills trees. No word on water ration yet. It was a low snow year and lake did not refill. Or Native project to remove dam so river could run as it did when their grand fathers fished it may be the cause, I do not know.

  3. From what I've read Kitty had a wonderful life with you two. Even so it is hard to say goodbye. Wish I could send you some of the east coast rain. We've had way too much.

  4. Thank You Sherry. Losing a family member is a very emotional event. In fact my feelings about his health was the reason I have not posted in a while.
