The Cat had to be euthanized a few days ago, after he went into liver failure. It wasn't a surprise - he had a lot of health problems and in the end, it was just too much. This old boy went through a lot, but I'm happy to say that in the end, he was comfortable and comforted. He got lots of scratches and love in his foster home for his last month, and I hope he was content as he passed on.
I'm very sad to say that Sunny also had to be put down recently. Sunny was surrendered to the shelter back in August 2009, and he was a super-sweet, cuddly older boy. He was finally adopted in December, only to be returned two months later. He was clearly depressed to be back in the shelter, and his awesome personality quickly disappeared. He stayed in the corner, not moving, not interested in people. And then recently, he started biting people when they tried to pet him. Four months had passed since he'd been returned, it was clear no one was going to adopt him, he was depressed and he was going to hurt someone.
Sunny was my favourite cat of all the ones I've known. If I could have a cat, I would have taken him long ago. I hate that he was overlooked for so long that it got to this point. If you're going to adopt, please look at older cats!
