Title: Goma-chan, to the Skies

  • I’m sure this will shock some of you, but I am sad to say that Goma-chan became a star.
  • It’s not an exaggeration to say that he was Nyander Guard’s idol.
  • Yesterday, he took his final breath.
  • We rescued Goma-chan in Tomioka Town in 2013.
  • He was born after the disaster, and he came to the shelter as a youngster.
  • When he was little, he was diagnosed with an enlarged heart, and he is prone to urinary tract stones.
  • We made sure to keep a close eye on him.
  • Lately he was staying in our volunteer Isshan’s room.
    Because it was such a sudden death, we’re fairly sure he had a heart attack.
  • The other day I held Goma-chan for the first time in a while, and he was still as big and cute as ever.
  • I started to think that since he’s becoming middle aged, we should probably be a little more concerned about his weight and the burden it places on his heart.
  • So many people loved Goma-chan.
  • Because it’s this season, Goma-chan couldn’t wait for the volunteers who love him to arrive for his cremation.
  • When he passed away, he was around 8kg/17.5lbs.
  • Our Goma-chan, who once went to a cat cafe in Tokyo and came back to us, just healed our hearts with his presence. And we loved him so, so, so much.
  • Spend your time well with friends up there in the sky.
  • Thank you to all of you that loved our little sumo.
