I had to come home so I could feed my Padfoot and break his fast--which to be fair has only been going on since 9 am, but still. I wonder if when he turns 13 I'll make him fast the full 25 hours. Or by then, maybe he'll be elderly and not needing to fast because of health issues. Are there rules on what animals can do on Yom Kippur? "No, Padfoot, no humping!"
I had a fairly easy fast. The Neilah service was quite hard on me though, between constantly standing and not eating for the past day. Eventually we got to eat and all was well. Orange Juice never tasted so good.
My 10 year Bat Mitzvah anniversary is on 28 Cheshvan, also known [this year]as November 9. I think I'll do my maftir and perhaps lead the service. I can't believe it's been ten years!
