    Sorry to hear Todd. This is the cursed end of the bargain we make. We get years of joy but the end is SO HARD.

    Always the rough part of the bargain, Todd.

    But congratulations on having such a great relationship with a wonderful animal. You both did excellent by Xena in providing the food, health care and love that she needed. And she held up her end of the relationship by giving you both just what you needed.

    Xena was definitely a cat. It’s great to have recorded memories.

    When Xena was diagnosed by the vet, she was placed on a prescription diet. The vet sold us a few cans of the food, and if Xena liked it, we could get the prescription filled with Chewy. I've never had any issues with Chewy, and when there have been a few hiccups with orders, their customer service always came through. Well, earlier this week, I contacted Chewy because we still had that full case of prescription cat food that I had ordered and arrived last week, still unopened, and it was too high calorie for the youngsters, so with Xena gone, I had no use for it. I asked if I could return it, and instead, they simply refunded the cost of the food and asked me to donate it to a pet shelter. We're talking $65 worth of cat food!

    It gets even better, as today the doorbell rang. It was UPS with an FTD delivery of a dozen roses from the customer service rep I spoke with earlier in the week, with condolences for my loss. What a truly class act!!

    My neighbor kitty, after spending most of winter living on my front porch in a little house with a heated cat bed, followed me in one cold night over a month ago, made herself at home, and hasn't asked to leave.

    Her family, nice people but apparently thinking she can just fend for herself even when the thermometer hits -20 F, hasn't missed her. So I guess she's now part of the family.

    Her choice, so I feel okay about it since it's not like I shanghaied her.

    Chewy appears to be a good store. My cats love their house-brand "Tiny Tiger" canned food, the chunk chicken kind. It's grain-free but at the typical grocery-store canned price.

    Chewy was bought out by PetSmart a couple of years ago, probably because they couldn't take the competition.

    That is a very representative story of the type of service provided by Chewy.com. We've had similar experiences over the years.

    There was a ton of concern at the time that the purchase would mark the end of the intensely personal and friendly customer service provided by Chewy.com. Amazingly, it has NOT been the case.

    It's a remarkable company.

    Yes, we have had similar experiences with Chewy. For customer service, I can’t think of anyone better.

    I wonder how these people would feel about living outside in -20 F weather, while the cat slept inside their heated house. You did say that this was a house cat, right? Not a snow leopard?

    We recently discovered that our cat loves to sleep for hours completey covered by his blanket. We are considering changing his name to “Ayre’s Rock”!

    The problem I see is that if my cat were that large he would take charge of the house. He already attempts to stop me from getting out of bed, or off the couch and he tries to grab me and pull me down and he tries to prevent me from leaving the house. If he had that kind of size I'd be in trouble.
