Mom is crying while typing and is just so devastated... It is with deepest regret that I inform you that *Picasso* has passed onto Rainbow bridge.
Mom just got off the phone with Picasso's mom and we promised her we'd inform her friends in diaries, groups, and some personal pawmails.
As you've read in his latest diaries he hasn't been eating as much (and we know he had a good appetite), but his mom was concerned and brought him to the vet. On his way there, he started to breath very heavy since he had Cardiomyopathy. The vet did administer a Lasix shot which usually helps. His heart was hard to listen to as there was a lot of fluids in the heart. The vet said that he would be ok to go home as there wasn't much they could do that wasn't done already. They decided to let Picasso go home, try and relax as a vet visit is stressful for a LOT of cats. After Barb paid for the bill, she was 2 steps out of the vet's door when Picasso started to breath and make loud sounds.
We're all in disbelief, shock, and very upset to say that Picasso went to the bridge today due to congestive heart failure. His mom went WELL and beyond to care for Picasso... Our family is SO HONORED to have met him 2x. He truly is a remarkable cat. We have all received a very special angel from the Bridge who is looking down on all of us.
I'm so sorry Barb and Rob. We are beyond sad to hear of this news... *hugs*
