On the Loss of a Friend

*** begin quote ***

My old friend Ambrose has died.

*** and ***

We have two younger cats now—I think that they kept the Old Guy alive longer by annoying him and stirring up his circulation—but I will miss my Ambrose as I have missed no other, possibly excepting Eris. I am no “animal lover” per se. I am a hunter (like Ambrose), an enthusiastic meat-eater (also like Ambrose), and PETA’s worst nightmare in the flesh, an articulate, widely-published, and outspoken opponent of the idiotic concept of animal rights. But Ambrose was my friend.

And now he’s gone.

And I’m not sure I feel any better.

*** end quote ***

I have “lost” many people and one pet. I don’t think I could express it as well.

Guess that’s why he’s a “writer” and I’m a “wanna be”?
