It is with a broken heart that we announce the passing of our beloved family member, Cosimo, our 21-year-old Siamese.
Friday morning we had to make the agonizing decision to say goodbye. It was heartbreaking.
We want to thank Dr. Emad and the wonderful staff of Cottage Animal Hospital in Oxnard who provided the most excellent care Cosimo received throughout his many years. That care is what undoubtedly kept him with us much longer than we could have imagined! And on his last day, they were by my side, helping me through the anguish and with me through the peaceful end of his life. It’s hard to explain the combined sadness of a great loss along with the joy of knowing that he was at peace. Needless to say we are mourning our great loss.
Although we are sad, it is joyful looking back at his wonderful life. He brought much happiness to everyone he met. He was the first to greet visitors. He loved taking car rides to surprise destinations. I wanted to share a few photos.
We used to joke that after brushing him, we had enough loose fur to use for a kitty toupee.
One of his favorite things to do was hanging out on the back patio.
He also enjoyed helping me sort through paperwork.
And assisted me with my quilting.
He enjoyed cat napping with a friend.
We miss him terribly.
Although, it’s hard to remain sad when …..
….you unexpectedly encounter Tesla with THIS expression on his face!! It’s his, “So?! Yeah, I took the protective throw off your nice leather chair. Now it’s easier for me to climb!! Why are you staring??!!” look.
We love them all dearly and are so thankful to have them in our lives.
