Oberon's Passing

Oberon passed away this evening due to heart failure.

My parents tell me it was quiet and painless, but it was time. He kept having more and more trouble breathing, and towards the end only 1 in 4 of his heartbeats was actually moving blood. The vet (a family friend) came over and put him to sleep, to ease his passing. He will be cremated and kept with the family.

He was a valued friend and family member. May he rest in peace.

    And now I'm eating spaghetti. You never can be too sure about these things. :)

    So I'm thinking of moving away from LJ. Every time I glance at my ad blocker, there are an uncomfortably-large number of advertising and tracking…
