Norma Maxey Day

Norma Maxey Day, 89, passed on 12/31/16. She was a Beloved Mother and Meme. She leaves 4 children, 13 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild. She has now joined the love of her life, her husband Bob, in heaven.

She was a cat lover and SPCR was her favorite rescue! She loved all the stories and pictures of everyone’s kitties and always wished she was younger so she could drive up and adopt a SPCR baby! She especially loved Susan Wente and the 5th Colony. Susan’s tribute posted on SPCR’s Facebook group described Norma perfectly. She will be missed.

Princess Bebe

In memory of Princess Bebe (SPCR Debbie)

  • Adopted with Love – November 4, 2014
  • Crossed the Rainbow Bridge – November 4, 2016

My precious Bebe – although we only had two short years with you when FIP snatched you from our lives, you will always be alive in our hearts.  You were chatty, funny, loving and beautiful.  And very much a Princess.  We  miss you every day and I know I will see you again at the Bridge with your other sisters that have passed before you.

When we think of those companions who traveled by our side down life’s road, let us not say with sadness that they left us behind, but rather say with gentle gratitude that they once were with us.

Dawn, Kenny and Kevin


In memory of Mars (1999 – 2016)

Mars, Marzee, Marzipan, Marston T. Kitty; you were known by several names to each of us.  You adopted us in 2010 after your previous caretaker had passed.  You were already aging then at 11 years, but continued to watch over us for another 6 years until the final decision had to be made.  We will miss your vocal protests at closing any door; your nose bumping to get under the bed covers on those cold Wisconsin nights; and your incessant inquiries into what was happening in every room at every moment of every day.  Thank you for being our companion.  You will be greatly missed.

Mark, Amanda, Evan & Erin Roberts

Suzie Q

In Loving Memory of Suzie Q
3/14/2005 – 1/14/2016

Thank you Kirsten and SPCR for giving us Suzie Q, an American Shorthair Silver Tabby beauty.
A donation to SPCR has been made in memory of Suzie.

Suzie was a blessing to our family and we cherished her. She loved to be combed, give us head bumps,
look at herself in the mirror, and eat.

We’ll keep her in our hearts and look forward to seeing her again on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.


In loving memory of Chia
Thank you Kirsten and SPCR for all you do, and a special thank you to Rebecca, for introducing us to this special little girl.

We are so glad you were a part of our life’s journey.
If love was all it took to mend your little body, you would have lived forever!
You were such a pretty girl with a beautiful soul, and we can’t wait, until once again, you can give us one of those fantastic hugs!
Love you so much little baby girl!
