Hi Ashley,

I just wanted to let you know that Malcolm passed away last night. He was doing well until about a week ago when he started vomiting and had diarrhea. He lost a lot of weight very quickly. I took him to Dr. Neufeld last night and held him as he got sleepy from the sedative. He purred and purred. He sounds like a little engine. Although he was only with us for a few months, we loved him so much and he was part of our family. When I got home last night, the dogs knew something was wrong and whined and paced for hours. Taffy, our female lab, took Malcolm’s bed from the couch and slept with it on the floor all night. My sons are devastated and we spent the evening crying and telling funny stories about Malcolm. I’ve got pictures for you and I’ll send them next week.

Thanks for all your support. Malcolm was very special.

Sultan 09-901-C

I adopted Sultan just a little under three years ago from NASAP. At first I agreed to foster him mostly due to his medical condition with renal problems. I had never had to deal with an animal that had special needs before and I wanted to make sure that I was completely able to give him the care and attention he needed. It didnt take long for him to warm his way into my heart and we became quite attached. He loved to be outside with me while I worked in my garden. He would never stray unless I wasnt around and so I made sure that he was on a harness and a long leash just to keep him safe in a very busy parking lot. He quite often would lay in the shade on a hot summer day along side the brick pathway by the garden and sleep for well over two hours. The way he lived each day, you would never know he was dealing with an illness. Unfortunatley last weekend I lost Sultan to his battle to renal failure. He was such a trooper thru it all. The countless days of IV fluids and medications and the feeding thru tubes just became too much at the end and I had to make the painful decision to let him take his walk across the rainbow bridge. I will never forget this little black cat with such a strength. He made my life full everyday.

Cubby 10-077-C

Cubby is a DMH all white spayed female kitten with a long beautiful, soft coat that feels like angora. Cubby was rescued with her siblings Anne, Parcheesi and Angus. She enjoys playing and snuggling with the other kittens. She loves attention and, like all of her siblings, has a very loud motor boat purr when she is being cuddled! Her foster dad can't believe that she is the last kitten from the litter that is still available for adoption. She is by far the sweetest of them all!

Age : 8 months
Breed : DMH white

Gus 08-127-C

We recently received the sad news from Gus' adoptive family that he recently passed away suddenly from what was likely a massive stroke.  He went very quickly and peacefully and was stretched out on the couch with his adoptive mom when he died.  Gus was surrendered to NASAP when he was 8 years old and because of NASAP he was able to enjoy an extra four comfortable years of life.  Gus was a very affectionate and gentle cat in his foster homes and his adoptive home but displayed a Jekyl/Hyde split personality whenever he had to go to a vet, turning into a Tasmanian Devil while being examined, and then returning to his mellow self as soon as he was back home in his familiar surroundings, purring away and looking for cuddles.  We'll miss you, old fellow.

Keisha 00-111-D

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the passing of our dear Keisha, whom we adopted from NASAP almost three years ago. She was a delightful, friendly, and loving companion, and our lives will not be the same without her. Keisha was 11 years old when we brought her home, but was healthy and active, remaining that way until just a couple of weeks ago. Her heart had begun to fail, and even though we and the wonderful vets at the Barr-North Vet Clinic tried everything we could, her health continued to decline. On August 24, 2009, as I held her, she slipped silently away. She will live on in our hearts.
