    Bozo was my husbands cat since he was a baby. He moved from the west coast to the east coast, and loved it here. He really as the coolest cat I have ever known. Very very soft,very mellow, never annoying- even liked going outside to potty, and would sit at the door when he needed to go out.
    He was fine yesterday, even jumping on the fridge and opening the cabinet to indicate he wanted a treat (this was a new trick of his) Today, we came home from after Christmas sales, and I heard pathetic sounding meowing. Found him hafl under my bed, and when Bird Hearder pulled him out, he was kinda panting/gasping. He wasnt moving.
    We rushed him to the animal ER, which is 5 minutes aay. When we got less than a block away, he got quiet. Then we heard some raspy hard gasping. The last gasp was as we pulled up to the door.
    We just let him go. He was close to 12 years old, and we figured it must have been time. Have no idea what happened, or why.

    So sorry to hear about Bozo's passing. His colors were/are similar to my first cat, Kirsty. She was soft and evil, but we loved her anyway.

    Good thoughts for Bozo and DH.

    So sorry! I had a Siamese cat that lived to be 15 years old and she was the best cat I've ever had. Lost my Blue point last year around the age of five or six years old...pretty young of a cat, full of life.

    Beautiful cat!
