I'm very sorry to have to give you the sad news that we had to have Louie (formerly Leonard) humanely euthanized this morning. It was very sudden and very devastating. He had seemed the picture of vet, Dr. Burgess, had looked him over shortly after we got him (mostly to check how the sutures in his mouth were doing) and all seemed fine. This morning my son found him in the family room, dragging himself around, unable to walk at all on his back legs. We rushed him to the vet, and Dr. Burgess found his back legs were cold with no sign of a pulse in them. She said that likely it was a blood clot; and that she was 99% sure that the cause was some form of heart disease. She had seen this before and the outcome was always grim. No matter the cause, he was suffering and there was no cure once the paralysis happened. In the end, the best option was to have him put to sleep.
We had all loved Louie...he was a cuddle bug who loved any warm lap he could find. He snuggled under the covers with my daughter every night. In fact, he was with her this morning, seemingly fine, until just an hour before my son found him. Louie loved playing with the laser pointer and especially the feather wand. He even got our old cat running around the house playing their version of tag. My husband and I were just commenting on how well Louie was fitting into our family, and how glad we were to have adopted him. I was hoping to send you a "Happy Tail", but it was not meant to be. The vet assures me that this outcome was likely inevitable, even if we had known about his heart condition in advance. I like to think he at least had a loving family to spend his last several weeks of life with.

Pearl was a beautiful and stunning white female cat. She and Wilbur were buddies. They had one thing in common; they both had feline leukemia. Wilbur passed away over a year ago and Pearl was lonely, but she got more affectionate with me, started to sleep with me and trust me more. I'm sad to say that on October 19, 2011 Pearl passed away due to her feline leukemia. She was fostered by myself and sometimes by Les. I loved Pearl very much and Les and I will miss her. Thank you.

It is with sadness I write that my beloved little Sweet Pea passed away a few days ago. Although her health had been deteriorating, I believe she passed away peacefully from old age. When I adopted her a year and a half ago, she immediately melted my heart. She definitely was a sweetheart. She will be remembered always and greatly missed.
