Stewie, March 2007 (joined us as an adult) - February 22, 2014  |  Stewie, you brought so much joy to us with your sweet and loving personality. From the moment we met, you purred even though you were severely injured. We will never forget how you beat the odds twice. You left us too soon and we will always miss you.


Star, August 2002 (joined us as an adult) - January 20, 2014  |  Quite possibly the sweetest cat ever born. So gentle and loving despite many rough years on her own. Never leaving our side—your absence has left a huge void in our home and hearts.

Hope, 1996 (joined us as an adult) - 3/12/2008  |  Our beautiful and sensitive girl. One day I looked at a very sad and scared face and said, "There's always hope, sweet girl." You were then our "Hope." You suffered at the hands of extremely cruel people, yet came to trust again. Thank you for loving us.  "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more elequently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love."  Washington Irving

Oscar, 2002 (joined us as an adult) - 11/21/2007  |  Our very shy yet lovable boy. We will never visit your window without seeing your handsome face rubbing against the glass.  You will never be forgotten. We hope for a cure for FeLV. "Tears are the silent language of grief." Voltaire

Joey, 9-23-2008 (joined us as an adult) - 1-26-2010  |  Joey, with us just 16 months, but he touched many hearts in that brief time. Not expected to live the night when rescued—neglected to the point of near death—yet loved everyone he met. Joey, your passing devastated us. We miss you so much.
