We saw him through 3.5 years of increasingly close care, as he needed more heart and kidney drugs in his morning food to keep going, and even after he amazingly survived a 12-metre fall from our roof to the garden below in 2018.
He finally passed after a year of 7x24 TLC from mother-in-law Dora, in Calgary, as his appetite dropped and he weakened. But we gladly (and expensively) kept him going with many vet visits, for truly he had the most smarts, courage, and curiosity of any cat we'd ever seen. Below are the last postings I did for friends that followed Sid's many adventures around our neighbourhood.
This page was popular with the Barrett kids after their stay here in 2016.
I tried to suntan, raised my upper body to turn over, and Sid went straight into the shadow. Because, of course, it was hot in the sun, but also he doesn't want to be a whole 3 metres from me in the shade of a tree. Got to be right here and be my pal.
The same scene from four stories above, peeking over our roof:
