It’s been two weeks (well, almost) so we have finally let Sebastian out into his room (empty of anything to jump on).  He is THRILLED! He hopped right out of the crate and walked a few laps around the room.  Then he rolled around on the floor for a while, in true Sebastian style. Even […]

On Wednesday, March 12th, my fiance and I noticed our cat limping.  His shoulder looked very swollen.  We immediately got him in to see the vet, thinking he had hurt himself somehow.  We had no idea that less than an hour later we would be devastated with the news that our handsome, charming Sebastian has […]
