Today is a sad day for us at FOF. Izzy passed away in the night. She was 22 years old.
All of us have cats that are just extra special. Michele is Izzy's mom. Michele is a huge part of the amazing rescue work we do here at FOF. And although Izzy was not an FOF alumni, we feel the loss.
Izzy was one of those diva cats who would 'not allow interlopers', which is why Michele is one of the few FOF volunteers who have never adopted one of our own. Izzy just wouldn't have it. She was Queen Bee, ruler of her world, and pretty much an old battle axe. No expense was spared on this old gal. She had the best of everything, as she rightfully deserved.
So for her to pass in the night, on her own terms, is not really a surprise. She always had things her way. And isn't this why we love cats? They have a mind of their own. There really is no forcing our lowly human demands upon them. They are superior and they know it. When cats rule the world, no one will be surprised to see Izzy's reincarnation on the throne.
Rest in peace sweet old girl. Michele, we grieve with you.
Wanted to send an update on our kitties adopted March 16th. Austin and Hunter (formerly Neville) have settled in quite nicely in their new forever home. Austin is the wild and curious kitty who entertains us with his energy and sweetness. Hunter is quieter and calmer and loves to be in your lap when not wrestling around with Austin. Thanks so much!!
Finally our Fabulous Feline Fantasia has been adopted! Autumn came in last week with her friend, who was adopting a cat. Although she has been proud mom of several kitties in the past, she was currently cat-less. Fantasia pranced and preened and worked her charms for over an hour, until Autumn had to have her. And she came back today to pick up her perfect princess. Happy Trails Fantasia!!!
