This week has been a sad week concerning our resident cats. Bizzy, who has been with us for 5 years passed away from illness relating to his age. While we are sad that he is gone we understand that life on earth is not eternal. Bizzy will never be forgotten. He was so full of life in his younger years and was a very affectionate cat.
Sadly, Hank was missing over the weekend and we found him close to the front of The Inn in the brush. He was injured on his hind legs and was clearly in distress. We immediately rushed him to the vet and found out he was struck by a car and had numerous internal injuries. We had to do the humane thing for Hank and let him go.
I appreciate the cats, but don’t share the love so many of you have for these creatures, but Hank was different. He arrived here last fall and while Hank was our troublemaker, he was full of personality and extremely friendly. Due to Hank causing issues I became involved with him removing him from buildings and trying to tame him. This forced interaction created a bond between the two of us. I will truly miss Hank and the spark of love he offered all our guests.
We have animals pass away from time to time but never in such close succession. I know there will be more cats that arrive at The Inn in the coming years, and we will continue to be a sanctuary for them in honor of our founder Marge Stock, who truly loved her feline friends.
