I spoke too soon yesterday when I said my little Schroeder was doing pretty well. He took a turn for the worse and we had to say goodbye to him this morning. Schroeder had been with me since he was just two months old and we had a really special bond. He loved belly rubs more than any other cat I've know, he gave kisses and nuzzles on demand and he was an excellent snuggler. He was the best cat ever and he will always be greatly missed. Thank you to everyone who has been sending well wishes and kind thoughts. It's greatly appreciated.
As a tiny two pound kitten, Schroeder loved sitting on top of this scratching post.
