No, the two aren't related.
So today I was at work, assuming the schedule was the same as it always is. Monday I work 6 till 2:30, Tuesday 6-11, Wednesday off and both Thursday and Friday are 8 hour shifts. Not the case this week. My day off was moved to today and my 5 hour shift moved to Friday. So I dunno if I'm getting paid for what I did today or what but I feel stupid.
Regarding a cat dying, my sister's cat is dead after owning him for 10 years. I've known this cat, Venom, for as long as she's had him. He a was loud, cuddly and friendly black cat. Now the only pet she has is the smaller, black tom named Vader who just recently graduated from being called a kitten to full cat status. He likes scratching me.
Pets have always had a fond place in my heart. Although I wasn't as close to Venom as I was to my dog Shasta when he died, I do feel sad now learning about his passing.
A good cat, may he yowl in the afterlife.
