It is with heavy hearts that we report Seth, our comfort cat, has passed. He fought an internal infection, rebounded to near-perfection after two full rounds of Clavamox (about six weeks) and returned to giving us his all in the short period of time he had left. What no one knew was that his heart had enlarged dramatically and finally failed. He never complained, even as he struggled to breathe and we raced him to the doctor. He gave us his hugs until the end and then, with our favorite vet in attendance, he slipped away and was no more.
Seth was our comfort cat from the very moment we found each other; us shopping for litter at PetSmart, him shopping for a forever home from an adoption cage at PetSmart. He was his dad’s boy but shared his love with his mom nearly as much.
He was the glue that brought so many of our kitties together in peace, both with the current crew and the older bunch that are all gone now, save Maxx.
From a horrible start – abused, neglected and then rescued, he joined our family and made it whole. We won’t forget you, Seth. Go in peace knowing you are still very much loved and meet up with the others who went before. Until we see you again, love Mom and Dad.
