Well, yesterday was a very sad day. Brett and I had to take Sergei to the vet because we had noticed that he was not eating anything and he was just laying in front of his water bowl and hovering. We even spread out an extra water bowl in the kitchen for him. This happened very quickly. It only took him one week to get to the state he was in at the end. We found out at the vet's that he had lost a little over 5 pounds in that one week. He looked like a shell of his former self. The vet made me feel the mass in his stomach which was very large and hard. Poor cat was dying from cancer. So, we did the right thing by taking him in and we'll miss him. I will miss hearing him "reow" from the top step of the basement stairs because he wanted in the kitchen. I included a picture of Sergei to show what he used to look like before the past week happened. Still hard to believe that it only took a week for him to get to the point that he ended at.
