1995 - 2012
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that our beloved office cat CHEETO was given a gift of peace on Monday, October 29, 2012. He said his goodbyes to his fellow feline residents in the Cat Room and took one last walk into the sunny outside cattery before his last visit to Lake Road Veterinary Clinic.
CHEETO was a friend and a greeter to thousands of visitors to HOPE since 2005 when he arrived after his owner passed away. He was the perfect candidate for an ambassador and office cat as he never once tried to leave via the front door, even though he always had the opportunity to do so. He was allowed to roam the office and hallways throughout the night, and enjoyed this freedom as he waited for the unsuspecting mouse to become his latest plaything. He was spoiled rotten to say the least but he stayed out of the way when things got hectic, knowing his turn for a treat would come when the next visitor came through the door. He loved when new donations of bedding or blankets arrived so he could try them out to make sure they were suitable for the other cats and dogs.
CHEETO started developing some heart problems about a year ago and started to slow down as he got older and his condition worsened. He spent a lot of time sleeping out of the public's eyes and was content to spend this past summer's mornings in the cattery. His final days were tough to watch as the 15 pound CHEETO of old was now down to a skinny 6. Gone was his appetite and his personality.
"Thank You" to Dr. Karen Mallum of Lake Road Veterinary Clinic for her treatment and compassion of CHEETO throughout the years and to Joy Smith of Rivers Edge Pet Crematory for her professional services and thoughtfulness. Goodbye CHEETO. It is lonely and not the same in the office now that you are gone but you have crossed the Rainbow Bridge and are suffering no more. We will see you again.
