Shino faced challenges with his mobility and self-care due to his health issues. Even walking was a struggle for him.
However, thanks to the loving care of his owner and the joyful companionship of Kuu, Shino continued to enjoy a contented existence.
As per the owner, Kuu, who is 7 years old, has taken on the role of a protector for his furry friend and won’t let any other cats come near him.
Shino’s condition made it difficult for him to walk independently, but thanks to his feline friend Kuu, he had a constant support system. Kuu would always be by his side to offer stability and assistance whenever Shino needed to stand or move around.
According to the owner, Shino went about his usual routine the day before he passed away. He had breakfast and ventured outside for a walk. However, in the evening, he suddenly collapsed and let out loud cries. The owner held him all night as he seemed to be experiencing a fever and struggling to breathe.
The owner shared that the day after she took Shino to the hospital, the doctor advised that he stay there for observation. The doctor mentioned that he could possibly be discharged later in the evening. Feeling tired, the owner decided to head home and take a rest.
During that moment, Kuu crawled into my bed and slept with me, which was a rare occurrence. However, out of nowhere, I received a call from the doctor at 2:30 in the afternoon informing me that Shino had ceased breathing.
Kuu was taken aback upon hearing the news of Shino’s sudden demise and even fell unconscious in the hospital. It was surprising as Shino seemed fine the day before. Concerned fans online started to inquire about Kuu’s well-being following the incident. According to the owner, Kuu frequently lay alone in Shino’s kennel and occasionally rested on the cabinet beside it, gazing at the spot where they usually slept together.
The proprietor was well aware that Kuu was pining for his dear companion who had gone missing.
Kuu, the pet, was given enough time to go through his food. The owner refrained from disturbing him during mealtime. However, the owner recently mentioned that Kuu’s condition has improved and he can eat more now. This news was shared with Kuu’s fans to ease their worries.
