Early this morning (12:30a), I said goodbye to our family pet. He passed peacefully on his own after breathing difficulties surfaced along with a lack of appetite which had developed suddenly. He was diagnosed with lymphoma. His name is Boodie and he was shy of his 16th year by 2.5 months. He was a well taken care of, loved, and adored cat. He was easy going and he brought many smiles to our faces. He will be greatly missed.
