Special Edition: RIP Tobey Kitty

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
~Rossiter Worthington Raymond

Tobey

Tobey passed away today.  The vet was of course wonderful to us and did the necropsy right away.  They found it was a genetic problem.  His left ventricle had a thickened wall, which then couldn’t pump the blood fast enough leading to a build up of fluids which created hypertension.  Poor fella.  He passed away in his sleep.

Now he can be with his best friend Jack.
