Up until a week ago nothing seemed wrong with Steve. He was busy trying to escape out the front door, constantly in the middle of everything and watching the world go by from our kitchen table. We noticed some trouble breathing which was initially diagnosed as asthma. Further testing revealed a mass around his heart. He came home Friday from the vet. We had to put him to sleep today. We knew his time was limited but had no idea he would be gone so soon.
Anyone who has come to our house has a great memory of Steve. We adopted him from animal control 4 years ago. He was such a dog...always around, waiting at the front door for you to come home. He was 100% Russ' cat. Russ will miss him greatly as will the rest of us. What an enormous loss - he was a special little guy we loved to pieces that was such a big part of our family.
