Goodbye, Little Trouble.

He'd been sick for a few months, seemed to be getting better.  Suddenly, over the weekend things took a turn for the worse.  Last night, took him to the hospital.  Today, the vet told us that both the heart and kidneys were having serious problems and, to fix one would put serious stress on the other.  Plus, he needed a blood transfusion, which his heart probably wouldn't survive.

Pavel gave the permission to put him to sleep and, tonight at about 6:40 pm, we let him go.

I can't imagine how Pavel's feeling; they lived together for over 10 years.  I just know that my heart feels like it's breaking right now.

Yuck :( Sorry to hear. How's his companion cat handling the loss?

Thanks, Nick. Both the other cats are taking it really hard. The white girl (Magnolia) wanders from room to room and cries. Tony (orange, and Trouble's companion for like 10 years) just sits in the front hall, staring up the stairs, waiting for his friend to come back down again.

It's really sad.
