With the heaviest of hearts, Shadow suffered a fatal stroke (cardiogenic arterial thromboembolism) suddenly Thursday morning. We rushed him to the emergency vet where my nightmare was confirmed. We were able to be with him for goodbye.
We are absolutely shattered. We are comforting Dot as we add a new ball to our box of grief.
While many felines have very low survival rate for hemangiosarcoma, we enjoyed 147 days together following his surgery. They were not enough. I’m thankful for every single one of the 12 years, 2 weeks, and 6 days (4403 days) we had together.
With love and purrs.
