We took the cat to the vets yesterday. But it was too ill and I had to come to the hard decision to put her to sleep. I signed the forms and came home without her. I collected the kids from school and told them.
My daughter thought I was joking at first but then got it. She cried for a few minutes, now she wants a dog. It took longer to help my son understand but he finally got it although he now thinks she is sitting on grass in the clouds. This would be kind of OK despite my attempts not to bring religious metaphor into the situation but now he's talking about building a rocket so we can go and get her back.
Sometimes its hard being a Dad.
