Today was a terrible day. Ptah Died. This is a memorial post for anyone who had ever met Ptah.
He was the opening shot in my first full length video part, Useless Wooden Toys in 1990/91
We was about to turn 18 years old.
He was having a hard time breathing, so we took him in to get checked out.
It seemed to go all downhill from there.
He had multiple trips to the emergency room over a few days...
During a check of his throat, they found a cancerous lump in his neck that was blocking his airway.
It was 'inoperable' - They could not take it out.
So that was it. No more options for him.
Anything else would have been prolonging the inevitable and extending the suffering.
He was loved by all. Here he is with Jamie Hart around 1995.
He loved sitting on my lap at night.
He always slept with Deanna in bed.
He was a huge part of our lives. The child we don't have.
He hugged me the first time I ever saw him in the pet store. We always had a bond.
He would rest on me as a read books.
He was often declared the 'Best Cat Ever' because he loved people.
He loved being loved.
This was the last photograph I shot of him.
