A beloved member of our family died today—Tom Tom our black cat. I found him in his cathouse on Sunday morning after calling and calling him outside Saturday night to no avail. At least I found him instead of not finding him at all. Turns out he probably herniated his diaphragm on Saturday night and the doc thought he would be able to repair it today but his organs went up and put pressure on his heart and he had a cardiac arrest. The doc hadn’t even operated yet but was trying to prep him for surgery when it happened. We are all in shock and his buddy and partner in crime, BT (our gray cat) doesn’t realize what happened yet. We got BT and Tom Tom about 2 years ago. He use to be an outside cat only but we got him and BT to come in at nights after about a year. He was very friendly and loving but also skitterish with others. The other cats keep looking for him-so hard to lose a family member we all love.
