Super sad, terrible, awful news.

I'm super sorry to report that Cosmo-Smeagol didn't make it. The doctors think he might have had a freak case of intestinal lymphoma even though he was only three years old. Apparently, sphynxes are very prone to intestinal disorders. I want to thank everyone who donated some money to his care - you raised over $100, which is a huge help because my mom just did her taxes and they owe over a grand even though they each claim 0 dependants which makes my mom livid.
So, I am really depressed that my new buddy died, it's just not fair! I know that my predecessor, Meg, and Pearl and Carl the cat and Alley the cat and Maggie the dog and Rocky the dog and a bunch of other friends that I have met for real and in spirit are taking good care of him in heaven. I just don't understand how this could happen. He was pretty much the sweetest cat in the whole world and I thought my kisses would heal him. RIP Cosmo-Smeagol and godspeed - my sweet little naked buddy.
Again, thank you all so much for the healing vibes and the donations. You are all the best puppies and kitties and people in the whole world!

Aw, dude. I'm so sorry for the loss of your new friend Cosmo-Smeagol. But even though he was only in your life for a short time, he'll be in your heart forever and ever. You and your mom should feel good that you made him feel safe and loved and happy.
C-ya,
