In Memory Of

Mama

September, 2012


Mama and her brother Papa were very wild when they came to Journey's End. They would hide and would barely be seen for months at a time. Florence would have to search for them to make sure they were okay. They were brought in by a kind young man who rescued a lot of other cats, and he came by every week to visit Mama and Papa until he unfortunately passed away.

Both Mama and Papa eventually adapted well and lost their shyness. They both became very friendly and affectionate. They usually could be found near each other. They used to live in the front room, but then were moved to an all-cats room in the main house. They were getting quite old and we thought they would be more suited to a quieter room.

One day we took Mama to the vet because she was getting very thin. Her blood test results were not good, and the vet said that multiple organs were beginning to fail, so she had to be put down.
