His buddy Nick went to the Bridge in January 2006 of intestinal cancer. He was a sweet boy who was born to a litter of four late 1999 - his litter mates are Joey, Minnie and Leroy. Leroy disappeared at age 6 months, never to be seen again.

Loverboy Joey was born to a litter of four ferals behind our house (Minnie, Leroy, Nicky and Joey). I am not sure who the momcat was. He was always a sweet cat who did not fight but would run off. As we got the ferals all spayed and neutered, he was run off by the head male because he came to maturity before we neutered him. he was living down the road but came for meals. He had wounds from fights several times so I finally brought him inside about 2002. He had skin cancer on his shoulder in summer of 2012 and we were treating it. The vets missed something because he began to fail rapidly and we lost him after only a couple of moths of treatment.

Our beloved Yoko was one of the few we had sicne she was a tiny kitten. She grew to be a big cat with a loving personality. She developed hyperthyroid and chronic renal failure in her later years but it was under control. This past summer we noticed a lump under her lower jaw which turned out to be oral cancer of the bone. it grew quickly and by early December was taking over her bottom jaw. Before she could suffer with this we let her go on December 6. My heart still hurts but I know we did the right thing.
