Seuss Went To The Rainbow Bridge

It has been awhile since I posted on our blog. However, I have been keeping up with our Facebook page. Yes, I know it’s not the same!

The worst thing about being a pet caretaker is saying goodbye. This one really hurt.

We lost one of our long time clients this past week. Seuss was a gorgeous 25+ lb, 9 year old Maine Coon kitty. He had such a big personality that his presence can still be felt in his home.

Suess NEVER took a bad picture. Please enjoy some of my favorite photos that I took of him over the last few months.

My condolences to Helen, Zeki and his sister Dory. He left big paw prints to fill.

Biggest Reason Cats Are Surrendered To Shelters?
