Uncle Ethan Is Dead


Our Uncle Ethan passed away on Dec 29th.
Uncle Ethan was estimated to be about 15 and had been left tied to a post in Klang in July this year. He was spotted by a young man who handed him over to us. Uncle had various issues such as cataracts, rotting teeth, maggot wounds as well as a big tumour near his underbelly. The vet told us not to operate on him because he may not make it. Uncle went to live with Mikha and Reco and was given a happy life filled with TLC. But the tumour started growing and it came to a stage where Uncle could not move and refused to eat. Caught in a Catch 22 situation, the vet said he would operate as the tumour was growing at a rapid pace. He was operated on yesterday and made it through surgery but died soon after. It is sad but we are happy knowing that Uncle was very much loved in the last few months of his life.



We who choose to surround ourselves

with lives even more temporary than our own

live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.

Unable to accept its awful gaps,

we still would live no other way.

We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,

never fully understanding the necessary plan.

– Irving Townsend, in The Once Again Prince
