Carol phoned me today as she was driving to the vet with Geezer.
Below is my post on Facebook.
Today our sweet Team House Captain Geezer passed from this world. He had end stage kidney disease and had come to the end of his journey on this earth today. Geezer came to SAINTS in April 2014. He was a lucky SAINT as he came from a home where he was much loved and he was much loved at SAINTS. He was one of the kitchen cats and that meant he got along with dogs, people, and other cats ... what more could one ask of a cat. He was always seemed to be at the end of the counter, near the door, waiting patiently for a head rub.
This is the third year we have had Team Captains. Since death is an everyday reality at SAINTS it has been a priority to pick a captain that will make it through the 1 month campaign. But that didn't happen this year. It is a sad yes but maybe it also okay too as acceptance of death is also a reality at SAINTS. Captain Geezer will still be the Team House Captain in spirit.
