In loving memory of Allison (1994 – 2014)

A donation has been made in the memory of Allison to SPCR.

Our sweet doll face girl had a very rough start in life. The founder of SPCR (Kirsten Kranz) fostered her back to health many years ago. Allison was abused early in her life. We were honored to love Allison for nearly 20 years. It is amazing that at about 1½ years of age she was near death and went on to live an enjoyable life to the age of 20. It was a joy to share our home with such a sweet girl. We are very grateful to Kirsten and SPCR for saving and improving the lives of many unwanted kitties.

Allison is still loved, remembered daily and missed very much.

Mooshie Pie

We lost our grand old lady – MOOSHIE PIE – on June 30, 2014.

She was just over 20 years old.  We miss you every day Mooshie Pie and you are always in our hearts.  Will meet you at the Bridge and kiss your sweet face again.

“If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven, and bring you home again.”

In loving memory of Christina; a very special Seal Point Himalayan.

Adopted from SPCR 08-23-2003 at the age of 5 years. Christina passed away Nov. 15, 2014 due to renal failure. Thanks to Sullivan Veterinary Services-Dr. Rick Loof for all of his help and expertise- IV fluids, Prescription diets and caring way of thinking. Dr. Rick said she was a real “trooper”- she got what she wanted- she died at home. Thank you Kirsten (SPCR), for giving us the experiences and memories of such a wonderful kitty. She will be in our hearts forever.

Shannon Fox

In loving memory of Shannon Fox.

Shannon passed away suddenly of a suspected heart attack Tuesday, April 1st, 2014. He and his wife, Janell are avid cat lovers and have rescued, as well. Janell continues to look  towards the Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue group to help her through this time as she grieves with her family, particularly her 4-legged ones. A memorial donation was made to SPCR to celebrate Shannon’s life and his love and passion for cats.

Jack (aka Honeybear)

 Left us way too soon after 5-1/2 years of unconditional love.  Poor guy had no claws, no balls, one eye, and 6 teeth – and then his kidneys failed.  The vet’s first comment was “This cat is missing a lot of parts.” He was a kind and gentle soul who greeted us every morning with a yelp and “the paw”.  He taught his brother Wookie how to jump on counters and open doors. He will be terribly missed by all that knew him.  Thank you to Lyndale Animal Hospital for all their love and care – we all cried on Jack’s last day as he was one of their favorite patients.  We take comfort that he will be joining Reina, Cicardo, & Sammi who went before him to the big cat house in the sky. His spirit will remain with us forever.
