We had to put Cooper down today. We woke up and he was sitting by his food bowl but couldn't move. His entire lower half of his body was limp and wouldn't move. He was also having issues breathing.

He's had various issues this year, but this was by far the worst. We rushed him to the Vet, who gave us the news that there was not much they could do. It was most likely a heart issue and a clot in his arteries cutting off blood to the lower half of his body. The likelihood that they could get it removed and save his heart was only 10%, and that the likelihood of it returning was very high. They also said it's very painful for the cat. We had no other option.

We were with him when he passed. It was very hard and continues to be. I miss him a lot already.

RIP Cooper. I love ya buddy.

Thanks man. This one really hurts. He was the only thing that mattered to me besides annette. It'll be tough to get over.

I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

I remember Cooper fondly and always tell people about the game you had with him jumping into the bag as it always makes me laugh to remember it.

Sending good thoughts to you and Annette.
