From Kathy and the Kobi team:
“I am very sad to announce that Kobi became an angel today. He was a 9 year survivor of VAS, having had his leg amputated in 2002 at the young age of 2. He died of Polycystic Kidney and Liver Disease not VAS. Kobi beat VAS!
For those of you not familiar with Kobi, he is the gorgeous white Persian who graces the VAS Support Group Yahoo group page. The Kobi Fund for VAS Cats is named after him and memorializes his 1st hu-mom Colleen.
He is survived by his brother Sushi and his current hu-mom Sue and hu-dad Jim. Sue and Jim loved Kobi with all their heart as he was such a special boy whom they lovingly took into their home (along with Sushi) after his first hu-mom passed away. He worked his magic and will never be forgotten by Sue and Jim or any of us who shared the stories of his antics and loving personality.
He will be dearly missed. Our hearts go to Sue and Jim and his brother Sushi. Heaven gained a very bright angel today.
Per Sue, ‘Kobi was our sunshine, my sugar cube, my little meringue and all things sweet and precious. He loved being kissed on his Kobi spots on top of his head and he dearly loved his tissue paper. He was a faithful and loving brother to Sushi.’”
