Sophie passed away last night around 10:30 pm. The vet called and said that she was just too weak to continue the fight. We’re devastated. It happened so quickly: in on Monday for a teeth cleaning, died on Tuesday. Sophie was 3, still young and full of curiosity, filled with love and affection, and totally trusting. She was happy, and she greeted visitors by immediately throwing herself prone and squirming in what she hoped was a fetching manner, to get them to pet her. She would then roll over and present an amazing expanse of tummy to be rubbed. She would sit quite properly at other times, her white paws looking like little Mary Janes, neatly placed side by side or crossed demurely. Her coat was generous and required brushing and thinning, but it was glorious, with a fine ruff and made her look as though she were wearing pantaloons on her back legs. In appearance, she seemed to have much of a Norwegian Forest Cat. She will be missed so much.

  2. It’s a shame she’s gone so young, but I can’t help thinking about how fortunate she was to have companions such as yourselves who obviously loved her so much. My sympathies to you all.

  12. Sorry Michael,
