I am so sorry about Simba. It's a terrible shock to suddenly be
faced with this disease. We didn't know our cat had a heart problem
either until he crashed and we had to put him to sleep. I'm glad
your vet was able to make his passing a peaceful experience. Maine
Coon cats are just wonderful. Take care.
