he stopped eating on sunday, no improvement on Monday. I took him into the vets and colleen helped him to peacefully pass away. it looks like his kidneys finally gave up on him. Dixon was a wonderful cat, strong and mighty, even at 20 yrs old.
he walked every moment in beat to his own internal drum.
I can't imagine how he came to be homeless, I can't imagine a family not turning over every stone to find him and bring him home. but his past life is a mystery to me, all I could see was this wise and wonderful cat who made a whole new world of staff and volunteers fall in love with him...he had charisma like that.
rest in peace Dixon, it was a long journey that you walked with great kindness and dignity. you filled our hearts with light and we will share that light with others when they need.
