Saying Goodbye to Niko

Today – this whole weekend in fact – has been good. Except for one thing.

Today we lost Niko. Niko is the cat that came with the house. He was a feral cat that at some point we trapped and had neutered maybe eight years ago. A few months later, he became a sweet and social (if a little pushy) house cat.

We’ll miss him.

Rest in Peace, Nico.
