My dear furriend, Sebastian (@Seabasscat on twitter) had to be helped to go OTRB late last night. He’s been sick for a few days and the vet couldn’t figure out what was wrong. So rather than see him suffer, his folks, Amy & Lee, decided this is what was best for him, even though it broke their hearts. It’s the hardest decision any pet parent has to make.
I had the great pleasure of meeting Amy when I went to Blogpaws 2 years ago and Seb has been my furriend almost since I started blogging and tweeting. Seb was a dear sweet thing with a ‘senstive soul’. If you’ve read his blog (Sebastian the Sensitive Soul) or talked to him on twitter, you know what I mean. We’ve had many a good time on twitter and on G+. I’ll miss Seb’s sweet nature and kind heart. *hugs*
Amy & Lee lost everything to a fire just a few months ago. They managed to save Seb and his guinea pig sisfur, Dottie, but nothing else. Now they have to go through this – it’s just too much. *leaky eyes*
I know Seb is in a good place and not suffering anymore, but my heart’s still broken. I miss him already and I know Amy & Lee are devastated. My love to you, Amy & Lee (and Dottie of course). Mom sends her love too, and so do Candy and EK. I hope all the love coming to you from the whole anipal community can bring you some comfort. I know time and remembering will eventually bring back your smiles.
I’ve seen a couple of pawsome blog posts out there about Seb. One is over at A Tonk’s Tail… err, Tale… and one is over at Mario’s Meowsings. So many pals love Seb that I’m sure there will be others before the day is out.
