Bad News

This is Bob

Obsidian was despondent when I woke up this morning. I gave him his meds and fed him, but about 10 minutes later he threw up half of what I gave him, so I called the vet and brought him in. His body temp was low as were his fluids, so I left him with them hoping to pick him up in the morning. When I finished work I called Monika and she told me that the vet had called her and said that he passed away on his own this afternoon. The rest of the cats are still walking around looking for him off and on. I gave each one cuddles and tried to explain that he won't be coming back, but I know it will take them a while to understand. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes, it meant a lot to us. Tomorrow I will post his goodbye. I meant to do it now, but I'm a bit of a wreck currently. I'm going to miss my little panther.
