Lavinia Ross sent me an e-mail to let me know Lucio passed. She wrote:
Lucio was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism at the beginning of the month and was on methimazole for it for a little over the last 3 weeks. He was doing OK and was zooming about last night…. problem and I took a stool sample to the vet this morning. While I was out, Lucio died in his cardboard box. I found him after lunch. I am reeling from too many things lately, now this.
Marcus and Lucio
No matter what age or circumstance, when they pass, we are reminded again that our cat and dog fur friends have short lives, that they are concentrated packages of joy and amazement while they grace us with their lives, yet they tear a hole in our hearts that never heals when they pass. Hugs and condolences to Lavinia and Rick Ross on the death of Lucio.
