Oh god, no. Not Robert Loughlin. Please, no. On his way to feed stray kittens in the night. He always did love kittys. And I will always love him. R.I.P. darling Robert. And thank you EV Grieve for publishing this tragic news. I am out of town and would never have known had I not checked your blog. :(
