Bao flashback.

Bao flashback.

little Humbao, my happy clown, had to be put to sleep tonight. Everything kind of came crashing down healthwise in the last few weeks and to a screeching halt today. He was struggling to breathe and not responding to anything the vet tried. 
He was THE most loving, gentle cat I’ve ever had. An utter sweetheart who loved everyone, even Twinkie and ‘the vet.’
I’ve known since the cardiologist saw him over a year ago he was living on borrowed time… but it doesn’t make it any easier. 
He didn’t even make it to three.

Bao is eating more, but it’s a trial to get him interested.  Still only babyfood and freeze dried meat. From scarf and barf, to anorexic.  Sigh. Poor lil dude.
He’s being a bit more social though and nudges are happening more normally so maybe the diuretic is helping him feel better.
The fact he got up on the cat tree for a bit was nice (and sadly unusual. )
