Coby was just about 11 years of age, and had passed 10 days before his birthday. He was such a kind, and loving family member. He was always ready to greet whomever may have crossed his path, he loved everyone! He was a very smart dog, learned how to do so many tricks in such little time. He knew where home was; one day he ran out of the backyard when the gate was not shut all the way and just ran to the front, and sat at the front door. He was always there to comfort a family member when he sensed a sign of sadness. He was beloved by everyone in the family. We will forever miss his playful presence, and him bringing us his toys to play with him. If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, i’d go right up to heaven and bring you home again my boy ♡ you will be forever remembered and cherished in our hearts, christmas this year will not be the same without you ):
Carl was such a good cat, I love him very much and I was very saddened to have found him hit by a car, I miss him already and it’s only been a few hours. We are going to have a funeral service because he is my first Cat. I can’t believe he’s gone. RIP Carl.
Cali was adopted from the RHS October 2007. Before finding her forever family, she moved from home to home, never finding the right fit. Andrew (dad), Jill (mom), and Jayde (aunt) stopped at the RHS to look at this little dog, and fell in love instantly. She was covered in dog treats (she loved to be dirty). When she came home she was groomed and cleaned. She looked like a different dog! She was so beautiful. The next year, her companion Diesel joined the family. Cali and Diesel were perfect friends, both enjoyed chewing bones, lounging, car rides, walks and playing together. Aside from some light sibling rivalry, they always got along. Cali was such a light in her families life. She also enjoyed staying with her grandmas and sun tanning. She was often called the “happy little marshmallow.” In 2016, her family received the sad news that cali had cancer. This did not stop her one bit. Thanks to some wonderful groomers, veterinarians, and modern medicine, Cali lived a happy and healthy life for almost two full years after her diagnosis. Her family also welcomed a new baby, Kael, in 2017. At first, she was a bit curious but mostly just happy to have mom at home all day for snuggles. Soon Kael was chasing her around and absolutely in love with her. The feeling was not always mutual, but she did love when he would share snacks. Cali’s smile would brighten the darkest days. She was a wonderful dog who was loved by many and will truly be missed. Rest in peace sweet Cali “boo”. <3
Cappuccino was the best looking cat we every saw. She was a pretty healthy cat and she spent a lot of time with us, as we got her and her sister June 2 of 2002. We decided to name them after one of our favorite beverages because one looked like black coffee and the other one looked like milky coffee. They were great together but different. Expresso was the bossy, miss personality that followed you around and thought you were a dog. Cappuccino was the ‘me too’ intravent that would hide when people came over, but was very effectionate when it was just us. She decided in her last few years, even before Expresso passed away in 2014, to hide under the stairs and only come out at night, leading us to nickname her the creature under the stairs. Over the last few months, she must have known something because she was coming out every night to get a scratch. Even though she decided my exercise area was a valid option for the litter box in the last two years, I am pleased with myself that I just accepted I had an old cat that was struggling a bit. RIP Cappuccino. Say meow to Expresso for us.
