40 minutes ago Gus started crying. Patti was petting him but I didn't think he sounded right. I picked him up and he was like a ragdoll. We took him to the ER where they said he was in cardiac arrest and they were breathing for him. 10 minutes later they said a tumor in his abdomen had ruptured and he was bleeding to death - there was nothing they could do.
He was at the vet in April and they didn't feel it. An hour ago, he was purring and happily being petted.
My dear baby. He didn't suffer at all but I will miss him so much...
