IMy sweet, sweet Atticus passed to Rainbow Bridge this morning. It was sudden and so unexpected as he was only 2.5yrs old and a healthy little man. We'd noticed a little incontinence lately and some weight loss over the last few months but chalked it up to finicky eating. Now, having done research and pieced all the clues together, we think he suffered from an undiagnosed heart problem that lead to a clot, specifically what's called saddle thrombus.
Mr Atticus came into our lives by happenstance after we found him grievously injured on a busy highway. After having a front leg amputated, he became the bounciest, cheeriest kitty in our house and was a friend to all the other animals. We're still in shock. I'll forever miss those wonderful head boops. Run healthy on your new four legs, my friend.
