And then there were three...

I know it's been a while and I really wish I was posting better news.

Percy went to the bridge tonight. We thought he had a bladder infection, but it was a major blockage - we considered the surgery, but then found out there were serious renal complications, among other persistent health issues. We knew he hadn't felt good for sometime, and decided it was best to let him go. We're all just destroyed right now - I don't know what I'm going to do not seeing his sweet orange face everyday.

We hope to post some recent pics of him enjoying his garden later this week. I can honestly say these last few months he was living with my mom and got to go outside were probably his happiest. He caught his first bird and was just so pleased with himself, even though we weren't. It was a very bright spot in his dimming life.

He just wasn't well, and I know these last few weeks he was feeling even worse. We all did all we could for him, but tonight we all knew the best thing we could do was let his soul be free.

Sweet Percy - we'll always love you, and there will always be a Percy shaped piece of my heart that will never be filled again.
