IN MEMORY OF KIRBY
2003 - 2011
Kirby was a warrior. He was rescued from the streets of Toronto 8 months ago almost dead. He had been living outside and unneutered for several years.
He started to respond immediately to the love and medication and lived the remainder of his life inside in one of our special foster homes.
He passed on Saturday, September 24, 2011 surrounded by love.
We will sure miss Kirbs, he was a regal fellow and a sweet angel.
Rest in peace Dear Kirby as you live in our hearts forever.
Charles was rescued in the Fall of 2008. He was a beautiful, white, long-haired cat who was affectionate and purred the minute you touched him.
After a series of ups and downs, we nick-named him King Charles as he always carried himself with the grace and pride of a king.
His life was cut short after he experienced medical complications and we lost our cherished friend.
Rest in Peace Dear Charles as you live in our hearts forever.
The following is just one of the many heartbreaking stories we hear about cats who are thrown out - disposed of - by uncaring owners.
He was put on antibiotics for his mouth ulcer. The vet determined he was a neutered male, but not microchipped. A day later, his blood test results came back that he was FIV positive and was severely anemic.
I fed him very small portions of a/d so as to not shock his system with sudden regular meals, according to the vet's instructions, and he seemed to be improving. He was a very sweet cat, always came when I called him (although it took him a while to find me since he was partially blind), and enjoyed being petted.
The vet told me that he was too far gone to be saved, but I tried anyways. I found him Thursday evening and he died Sunday evening.
I'm sure you hear stories like this all the time."
Yes...we do hear stories like this all the time. Sad, isn't it? And yet, totally preventable. CATS ARE NOT DISPOSIBLE. They are not property, like a chair or a pencil. You can't just throw them away. They are family, to be valued and loved.
