Noted in passing...Waffles
Waffles was the beloved cat of the proprietor of the political/comedy site, The Poor Man Institute. Waffles was attacked by a stray dog last week and had been in a coma for several days...
Waffles appreciates the extremely generous offers to pay for his vet bills, but every veterinarian in town takes one look at Waffles and insists on working pro bono. That’s how it works when you are the Most Charming Cat Ever.
...Waffles went to sleep last night. The injuries to his brain were too extensive. He was one year and three months old. He was a very, very good boy, and I was proud to have known him.
