Socrates was adopted June, 2003

February 15, 2009 from Socrates' family:

I have the saddest news about Socrates, whom we adopted in 2003.  He died today at home within only a few minutes of what the vet believes was a heart attack.  He was a lovebug, and we are devastated at losing him.  I had brushed him thoroughly this morning, and he looked so handsome.  We know that there are no guarantees as far as the lifespan of animals, but this was quite a shock.  We were with him when he died, and he knew that he was loved.  Here is a photo from just last month in his new cat condo.
