Our King is with us no more...

Old age took its toll. Lovebug King Arthur, fondly referred to as  "Oupa" ("Grandpa") by Olga, over time got frail. On Thursday, 5 June 2014, he started to have problems with his stools. He was weak and in pain. His breath was shallow. 

His his rectal area became swollen and the pain increased. Polyps became visible. The vet also felt hard lumps higher up in the rectal area. It was best to not let him suffer further. 

He was euthanized and died peacefully in Alida's arms. 

Rest in peace, dear King Arthur. You were an anchor in saving the Traditional Longhairs from extinction.
