One of Those Times When Life is Hard

We had a rough afternoon here yesterday.  Daughter and her roommate had to put one of their cats down.  He had been given to them by a friend only a few months ago.  I took them to the vet's office and waited.  Neither of them had ever actually been witness to a euthanizing;  my daughter was surprised, and relieved to see/know that the process was so peaceful.
