We apologize for not being a bright, positive spot on the Internet today.

Former foster, happy-go-lucky sweetheart, mama to Viola and all Niblet babies, Pixie bobtail ginger girl, and the very best bed cat to wake up to each morning, Zuzu (Erinn) Niblet suddenly went into previously undetected renal failure last weekend. No amount of fluids administered or syringe feedings or vet care could help, no amount of snuggles or brushies or kisses or sweet nothings whispered in her ears would help. When just last week, she brought smiles to our faces and delighted us with her daily scampering up and down the stairs, sitting on Mom’s lap during tea time each morning, and patiently waited to be carried into the master bedroom suite she shared with us and Ruby each night, now a ragged hole resides in place of our hearts.

Zuzu, lethargic and near comatose, was beyond saving, and while we held and cuddled her at 3:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, in a beautiful, quiet room, she passed on to run scampery-fast and free at the warm, forever summerlands beyond the Rainbow Bridge, where we will meet again, someday, to snuggle once more, and for ever.

We love you, Zuzu, our sweet mama Niblet, our Mama Bun. We are so sorry we couldn’t help and so sorry we couldn’t have had more years together. Thank you for giving all of us Viola. We promise to take good care of her. We will never, ever forget you, our dearest Zuzu. Until we meet again… just love, all our love.

09/13/2017 – Wordless Wednesday but with Breaking News!

***BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!***

Teese was adopted yesterday!

We are so unbelievably happy for sweet Teese and wish her the very best in her forever home. We feel so happy to have been here for her when she wasn’t sure what her world had or would become. Thank you all for reading and commenting on posts about Teese over the past seven months or so. Your words helped strengthened our resolve to get her off the streets, out of potential danger, and into the best place possible for adoption. And it happened!
