Arrival Story: Mr. Underfoot originally belonged to a roommate of mine. He wound up sticking with me several years later.
Bio: Daft, fat and beloved.
In early 2004, shortly after the birth of our daughter, Mr. Underfoot suffered a stroke which paralyzed his hind legs. We discovered that he had heart disease and his heart was very enlarged. There was no treatment possible for his paralysis, and if he had continued to live, the heart disease would have caused many more little strokes that would have been painful and distressing for him. We knew the best thing for him would be to pass peacefully in our arms. We miss him and his deep rumbling purr.
