The Shropshire Star:
Otto's human Mrs. Jones today said: “I’m devastated. I’ve had Otto since he was six weeks old.
“He hasn’t been well since just before Christmas. We thought it was a stomach ulcer but it was confirmed yesterday that it was stomach cancer. He’s had a wonderful life. He couldn’t have had a better one. He’s like the son I never had.”
Our hearts go out to Otto's family and friends.
