Default Sad day at Two Cats Winery...

Today is bottling day for my WE limited Edition Primitivo.

Everything was set up, bottles washed, corks soaking, wine moved to bucket.

Doorbell rings, neighborhood kids have found one of the two cats dead in the woods behind my house.

Timmy was caught by a pack of wild dogs that have been seen in our area lately, I don't think he suffered much, but I hope he got in a few good licks before they killed him.

Wine was bottled, hope tears are sterile...

We've lost a cat in a similar way. I suggest going through all the pictures you had of the kitty. It'll make you cry like a baby for a couple hours, but it's a good start to healing. Sorry man.

Oh, no, that's terrible! I'm sorry for the loss of your pet. That's so sad. I can't imagine losing my cat so suddenly. I know you'll miss him.

My condolences. Beloved pets always cross the Rainbow Bridge far earlier than youd ever want them to. A toast to Timmy.

Guess you'll have to change the label for the new batch, huh?

Saddened to hear of your loss. My cat "Schnitzel" died just a bit ago. I still feel the pain.

Maybe as a memorial, you might put an image of Timmy on the back label of the Primitivo?

I did this a few years back ... took a photo and used photoshop to create a version of the photo that looks like a painting (a trick that uses a couple specific filters ... really pretty easy) ... and then made a watermark out of it and used it under the writing on the back label.

We didn't have Timmy very long, he simply showed up at our door one day and decided to stay. He was a Maine Coon cat and was by far the best cat for being friendly. He was just as happy snuggling with me as chasing mice. Never met a cat as friendly.

I liked him from the first time I saw him at the door and he was MY cat. The wife has Rosie (obviously the second of the two cats).
