The kitty who passed was Rossi. His buddy is Martini -- Martini & Rossi!
I have 13 other cats in the house, and would never forgive myself if I somehow 
introduced the virus into the rest of the population. I do allow Martini to 
play with another cat (who is an outcast by his own choosing -- hates all other 
cats except Martini & Rossi), but supervised and with the food and water bowls 
and litter boxes put away. Also Martini likes to play with/tease the dogs! He 
is quite the character, and has a real mischievous/naughty streak.
Thanks everyone for your kind words and thoughts about Rossi. We buried him in 
our yard, so he can stay close.
S.
