Another light winks out
I got my Valley of the Kings newsletter today.  Kokie Joe, a sweet-tempered, friendly old tiger, was euthanized to end his suffering from end-stage renal failure.  VOTK is too far away for me to be a regular volunteer or even visitor, so I haven't really gotten to know the animals there.  But Kokie Joe was sweet enough that I counted him among my tiger friends even though we'd had very little time together.

I'm still grieving over Otie, dammit.

I am sorry, man. Bless you for keeping your heart open to fellow mortal creatures.
