Austin, founder of the Feline Diabetes web site, passed away unexpectedly. After the sudden onset of congestive heart failure, pulmonary edema, and a blood clot which left him partially paralyzed, Austin passed away while sleeping in the arms of his Dad.

Austin joined his brother, Eugene, at Rainbow Bridge

on February 22, 1998, at 1:50 a.m.

We knew in our hearts that Austin would soon join his brother but we still hoped we had many years with this loving little tabby. He has helped us cope so much in the six months since Eugene passed. It seemed impossible to love him more than ever, but we did in that winter.

Austin was a remarkably intelligent and exceptionally loving cat. He will live forever in our hearts.

For all of you who have visited Austin's web site and read his diary and given your support, thank you.
