Our Social Media Guru, Jacquie asked me to write up something about our volunteers.   I thought how can I make people understand just how important, amazing and wonderful each one of them is? I don’t want to start naming names as I wouldn’t want to miss anyone.  ...

This is a special and final #caterday post about our very last resident kitty, Munchkin, who crossed the rainbow bridge almost a week ago. Although Munchkin is no longer suffering and in pain, our hearts are hurting knowing we won’t hear her loud and hungry meows, her 3 legs thumping on the hardwood floor, and just knowing she’s upstairs in her favorite spot, relaxing in a beam of sun light.

We have been working hard on a series of books about the residents, and we were fortunate enough to finish Munchkin’s beautiful story before her passing.

If you would like a little memory of our sweet girl, you can purchase her book here: www.createphotocalendars.com/Store/Tails+of+Love+Munchkin+s+Story-3582217515

We will miss you forever. ❤️

When I walked thru the front door today I just stopped and looked upstairs ❤️ Rest easy sweet girl.

RIP sweet munchkin… so sorry for your loss…🐾❤️

The pain runs deep when we lose one we love. Our dear dog, Pepper, has been gone since early February, and her absence is a huge presence -- and the tears can ambush me.
