North Shore Animal League America is sad to announce the loss of one of our treasured sponsor pets, Sir Kobe, who passed away at his foster home on November 4, 2012.
Debbie, Sir Kobe’s foster mom, informed us that Kobe died peacefully in his sleep, and our veterinarians have determined that cardiac disease was the cause of his death. Sir Kobe joined Animal League America’s Sponsor Program in 2002. The playful and mischievous cat suffered from a very serious heart murmur—a condition which, if left untreated, would likely have been fatal within a year.
Sir Kobe was closely monitored at our state-of-the-art Medical Center for all of his 10 years, coming in for check-ups every three months. With tender, loving care by his foster mother, Sir Kobe lived well beyond expectations. The regal cat, who loved to rule his roost of cat siblings, earned his nickname: Sir Kobe.
As with all the animals in our Sponsor Program, and all in our care, it was our unrelenting mission to ensure that Sir Kobe had the best life possible, and we are comforted to know that he lived every day to its fullest. We thank Sir Kobe’s foster mother, and all of you who donate to our Sponsor Program, for enabling this beautiful cat to live a long and happy life.
Sir Kobe is dearly missed and will never be forgotten.
