Rest in Peace Thurber
With the possibility that this may sound sappy noted, one of our cats died this morning. I'm not sure of the cause, but he was very overweight compared to the other three cats we had (and we don't over-feed them) so I'm thinking maybe it was a some kind of heart defect or congenital defect. Thurber was a little over three years old.
We got Thurber as the last member of his litter, and as is the case with all cats, he had his own distinct personality. In Thurber's (or "Thurby" as we would call him) case, he was extremely cautious of things and the slightest noise...such as opening a garbage bag...would scare him. Like a dog, I could call Thurber if I was going upstairs to lay down for hour or so, and sure enough about two minutes later he would be laying in the bed with me, purring as I scratched his ears.
Rest in peace Thurber...you were a good guy & I'll miss you.
