the Rainbow Bridge because he was very sick. I am really, really sad about this, but I think Hank and Gabe are playing together now, and maybe they are also playing with our three little foster kittens, Janey, Jilly, and Jeeves.
like I told you once before. Anyway, Aunt Cheryl was always very good about giving Hank all his pills and trying to get him to eat, even when he didn't feel like eating, which was a lot of the time lately. Personally, I always feel like eating, and so does Barry, but sometimes Gabe used to not want to eat. And Nicky feels that way sometimes, too.
Well, Aunt Cheryl could hardly get Hank to eat anything for the last few days, and then yesterday he started vomiting a whole bunch, and he was all kind of twitching, like he was having little seizures or something. So that's why he went to the Rainbow Bridge.
Hank was very friendly, and he let everybody pet him. He would sit and lean his back up against a person, so that it was very convenient for them to pet him, and then if they stopped petting him, he would put his head back and look up at them, and he seemed to say, "Why did you quit?" So then they would of course start petting him again, because it was so cute when he did that.
But getting back to Hank, he was often called Hankster Prankster because he was always being naughty and getting into stuff he shouldn't be into. He learned to open the refrigerator door, and one time he pulled out a great big package of hamburger. Then Hank's brother Leo, who was a Great Dane/Lab mix, ate all the hamburger and the package, too. Which made him very sick! Finally, Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Art got one of those refrigerators that has the freezer in a drawer on the bottom, and Hank couldn't open that.
I just wish that Hank didn't have to get so old and sick, and that he didn't have to die. I'm going to miss him, because the next time we go to Texas to visit Aunt Cheryl, Hank won't be there. And that will be strange and also very, very sad.
