sad news yesterday...sheila called me and said scrappy was suddenly not doing well again. he has been dealing with many health issues...diabetes, hyperthyroidism and finally cancer. she and leila were taking him in for euthanizaion at the end of the day. sheila was crying as she told me this and i was happy that she was so sad because scrappy deserved to be able to break a couple of hearts at the end of his days. to someone before, he was just a throw away street cat but scrappy was no longer that any more.
sheila and leila gave him a great home and he made them laugh, and he made them think cuz scrappy was not a normal every day kind of cat, he had a bigger than life personality. i don't think they had ever met a cat quite like him before.
at the end of his days, scrappy was loved by someone, he had a family who cared.
i am sorry that my friends are so sad at losing him..but i am so glad scrappy at the end of his life was so very well loved.
rest in peace and way to go scrappy, good on you for bruising some loving you hearts.
hugs to sheila and leila, and our most grateful thanks for giving a sick and fat old black street cat, tears at the end of his days.
