Nine year old cat Spongebob, once 33 pounds, has died. He finally found a home two months after spending time at a shelter.
His new owners, Courtney and Matt Farrell, were told Sponge had a clean bill of health, but two weeks ago, doctors found a mass near his heart.
His options limited, Sponge had to be put down.
Courtney writes the following on the decision:
This has been one of the hardest things I have ever experienced, and certainly the most difficult thing Matt and I have had to endure as a couple.
We loved this cat so tremendously and had so many plans for him as part of our family. We hadn't had him for long, but we had already dreamed about him being around in the future.
