Gus
1/15/1999 - 6/17/2020You walked into my life one day and never left. I am so grateful to have had you as my buddy for 21 years. You were always independent with a loving and friendly spirit. You were there for the hardest parts of my life, but also for the celebrations. You stood by me through the turbulent and quiet times. Thank you for sticking with me. I will miss our walks together, snuggles in bed, and your constant demand for food. We feel a huge hole in my heart with you gone, but I know you are happy and free. We will always love you with all of our hearts. We miss you, Gus.Lara KossiakoffChicago, IllinoisJune 22, 2020

Lara and John,
Thank you so much for your kind words and sharing a little of your brave boy with me. From the first moment of seeing Gus sunbathing in his basket, I knew that he was a cat that wanted for nothing. He didn't have a care in the world and was basking in your love and gentle pets. Not many kitties can say that they witnessed the turn of the millennium. It takes a very strong and independent spirit to live that long and survive the many challenges that life put in his way. But it was your love and dedication that carried him through. He will forever be remembered as a kitty of unparalleled determination and the greatest love of treats till the very end.
Sending you peace and comfort during this time,
Dr. Maura
