Rainbow Bridge ~ In Memory

1/15/2022 ~ We helped Vader on his journey to the Rainbow Bridge after almost 9 years of helping him through so many physical/medical setbacks ~ Vader arrived in early 2013 as a large unaltered stray and it was obvious he had lived a rough life up to that point. With time and patience Vader warmed up and proved to be a very friendly and social cat who was the first to jump in your lap. Vader was FIV+ and over the years we helped him with so many setbacks from his skin/allergy issues and he was on special food due to a urinary blockage/crystals, but ultimately oral squamous cell carcinoma was the one and final enemy we could not defeat. If any kitty ever deserved a break, it was Vader, but we are thankful we could bring him inside to be a part of our family for just 3 days shy of 1 year. We were able to give him all the care he needed over the years with the help of his sponsors (Carolyn & Makayla Barnes) as well as our other wonderful supporters.

5/2/2021 ~ We said a tearful goodbye to Max, as he suddenly passed away from what appeared to be a stroke (or heart-related). ~ Max showed up as an unaltered adult stray in early 2012 & though he looked a bit rough (but still handsome) he soon turned out to be the sweetest lap kitty. Max was FIV+ and at the time of his passing we believe he was somewhere between 11-14 years old. We miss him dearly and feel grateful that with the help of his sponsor mom (Stacy Borans) and many other supporters we were able to provide him with a safe and loving environment.
