Goodbye Venus

We had to say goodbye this morning to our 17 year old cat Venus. Lou and I adopted her from a farm in Oxford to make the move with us after we graduated college and moved to our first home in Cincinnati. Since then, she's followed us everywhere we've gone--from O'Bryonville to our house in Blue Ash, our condo downtown, to our house in East Walnut Hills and our current home in North Avondale. All who knew her could tell you of her spunky personality (to put it lightly), but she grew increasingly sweet in her old age. It's amazing how much of our lives she was a part of--5 moves, 2 births, 1 new dog. A lot has changed since we were just a couple of college kids dating who thought we needed a pet! We'll all miss her and her morning meows for milk. Josie will especially be heartbroken with this news, as she & Venus have become quite the pair over the last few years. Venus spent her last night curled up in Josie's bed with her and passed away in Lou's arms. Rest in peace Venus.
