Our Beautiful Boy -- Seaborne

Deb:  Thank you all very much for your compassionate comments.  I appreciate your friendship so very much.  Seaborne was fine on Wednesday morning.  He started panting heavily around 5:50 pm.  We wrapped him in a blanket and rushed him to the E.R.  He had a seizure when we got there.  I gave him CPR, but he passed.  The vet said that he had apparently had a clot that went to his lungs.

We are heartbroken.  Seaborne was a darling boy that we rescued while on vacation in Seaside, Florida.  He was around six weeks old and the cutest little puff of white fur with his beautiful odd eyes -- one green and one blue.  Seaborne was ten years old.

We are taking a break from blogging for a while.  I will be reading your comments. 

Thank you so much for your friendship.

Oh, Deb...This is so upsetting. Chumley had a blood clot too, that gave way and blocked circulation to his lower body that terrible night. So I understand the shock of a sudden passing.

The boys are continuing to send their purrs and I'm sending hugs and universal Light.

Peace and Blessings.

Oh Deb, I am so so sorry about Seaborne, he was such a pretty cat. From day one since we all started blogging he was my favorite one of your cats. He reminded me of our Fluffy of years ago. My parents had Fluffy's brother. Hugs, Purrs and Prayers to you in this time of grief. One thankful thing is.............they live on in our hearts.

Love,

I've been blogging today and seen your Seaborne's picture on a lot of blogs. He was much loved. Im so very sorry for your loss. I too have lost 2 cats to blood clots..Smudge 13years old and my Maine Coon Simba only 5 years old.
I know you are heart broken. It litertally takes me years to get over a loss. Call my crazy. But I love my kitties like family. Im disabled and my cats keep me so much company. When your pain lesses Honor Seaborne by adopted another kitty in need..Seaborne will be looking down and meowing for you. If you would like to see my beloved Smudge and Simba come by to visit us. We don't get many visitors.
God Bless You for giving Seaborne a great home and family.
