We continued with the rehab process and all fell in love with this brave little bobcat, unfortunately his seizures returned and a particularly severe episode claimed his life... Rufus will be missed dearly by everyone who got to know him and of his.....

I wish I could have known Rufus. Someday in the future I can meet him and there will be no pain and suffering.

Oh, that poor sweet baby. I wondered what happened to him!

At least now, he can see everything around him as he runs and plays!! And he will have no more seizures to hurt and frighten him!

Rest in peace little Rufus!! You were loved while you were here and will be missed!!

RIP sweet Rufus. Thanks for the update, Barb. I'm very thankful to the people that gave him as much life as his body would allow. Too bad it wasn't for longer, but his body just couldn't do it. I'm glad he got to run and play even just for a little while. Very sad.

I saw not long after your post about beautiful Rufus, that he had passed. He just couldn't hang on any longer.
RIP Rufus.
