Big Guy passed over the Rainbow Bridge today. Some of you were fortunate to meet him. He came to us with Janie and Laly. Several years ago he broke his leg and it was repaired. About a month after a long cage rest period the rod came through the leg. He was rushed back to the vet where they tried again. It just didn't work so his right hind leg just dangled. He could use it to steady himself but could not put weight on it. While he was at the vet for all of this they found a scare that went all the way around him from something that was on there a long time and tight. While he was with Lapcats we found he had kidney disease. He really didn't want to eat his food but he did because he had a bad tooth. That was removed and 8 months later had to have an extensive dental. Dr. Petrunich took many precautions to make sure he survived the procedure. Came through with flying colors, could eat anythiny and everything he shouldn't. But that nasty diseas took its toll on him.
Rest in peace Big Guy and take care of Bugg.
