I said goodbye to my Sweet Pea this morning. Heart failure strikes this family once again. There was no way to mend his heart, so it was for the best to put him to sleep. A very, very difficult thing to watch, but most definitely the responsible thing to do so that he didn't suffer at all. He lived a good, long life of 15 years. He really was the sweetest cat I have ever known. We will miss him dearly.
