I’m sorry to share some very sad news. My best kitchen helper Gus died very unexpectedly today. We’re not sure what happened but he had some sort of cardiac/breathing event after a very routine visit to the vet for blood work. He was totally fine after the vet visit but about 10 minutes after we got home he suddenly became distressed and could barely breathe. I rushed him back to their office (thankfully right around the corner from my house) and they tried mightily with CPR, oxygen, and other means but could not save him.
Since there only about a hundred photos of him here at Idiot’s Kitchen “helping” me cook chicken or posing handsomely with ingredients, if felt wrong to just let this go by without saying anything.
So please allow me this small tribute to my sweet, sweet boy. May there be roast chicken and peanut butter in cat heaven.
