Unhappy Cross your fingers for Wellington

I am so stressed and freaked out. My breeder called me this morning to let me know that one of the cats sired by Wellington's dad was diagnosed with HCM (hypertropic cardiomyopathy). She was calling all owners to have their cats checked for this disease. I knew going into this that maine coons have a genetic predisposition to HCM, which is why reputable breeders screen their breeding cats. Wellington's mom & dad were echocardiogrammed and they were both fine. But of course that is not a guarantee.

Anyway, earliest appt I could get with the cardiology group around here is Sept 8th. Meanwhile my worry-level is hitting sky high. Please cross your fingers and say some kitty prayers that Wellington gets a clean bill of health. We just love this kitten so much. He was my replacement for Spanky who we lost just last year to cancer.

Thanks
