Sad News

We recently lost our beloved cat Jackson. He was nine years old and the best cat ever. It's hard to describe how much company he was. He was always with us and loved to cuddle. He was a wonderful big brother to two kittens and adopted them like they were his own.

One minute he was playing and purring and then suddenly his back legs were paralyzed and he was having trouble breathing. We immediately rushed him to the vet, but they could not save him. He suffered  a heart attack and his heart was too badly damaged.

Bridget, our two year old cat, misses him so much. We are so grateful for all the time we had with Jackson and have lots of wonderful memories.


Take care and hug your pets for me.

Linda

Hi Linda. So sorry to here about your beloved cat. I could only imagine what its like to lose an animal.
They had mis-diagnosed our golden retriever Roscoe 3 years ago telling us he had cancer on one of his paws. I was devastated when they told us they would have to amputate his paw. So losing your cat must be horrible.
hugs, Ana
