Please join me in honoring the memory of today’s Star Kit, Austen. He was a 6 year old DSH from Edmond, Oklahoma.
Austen was a wonderful friend and companion. He and his brother were born on a farm just after Christmas in 2009. They were discovered and brought to a kitten rescue where I adopted them. Austen and his brother Jack were loads of fun! They were always running, jumping and wrestling each other.
Just before their 6th birthday Austen began coughing, and after a few trips to the vet it was discovered Austen had advanced heart disease. It was devastating! There was not much we could do as his time was limited and prognosis was not very good. We decided to make the best of the time he had left and was able to treat him with pills and shots, which gave him an additional three very good months with us before we had to make the difficult decision to let him go. He was a great cat and his brother still misses him almost a year after he passed.
