Jessica I'm so sorry to hear about Jorge's passing. I remember reading about him, he was lucky to have such a wonderful caring person to have looked after him. My thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Subject: [FH] Jorge has passed away
Jorge passed away this afternoon. He collapsed and was frightened and
appeared to be in pain. I spoke with his vet and she confirmed that
he was dying; any more treatment would have just prolonged his death
and not his life. I decided it was time to put him to sleep. This
was the hardest decision I have ever made in my life. I can't begin
to explain how sorrowful and devastated I am. We only had him for 10
short months, but I loved him more than any other cat that I have ever
had. He couldn't have had a better morning napping away in the sun
and snuggling with Margarita. His heart just gave out. I am grateful
that I was home when it happened and he didn't have to suffer long.
I want to thank all of you for your continued support, concern and
compassion that you have given me over these few short weeks. I want
to emphasize that Jorge had an extremely serious and advanced case of
hcm coupled with congenital heart defects. His rapid decline is by no
means predictive of how your cat may fare.
Best of luck to all of you and your beloved pets for this new year and
may there be many more new years to come.
