It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved furchild. Sierra passed away peacefully at the age of 12 2/3 on June 20, 2019 with her loving parents by her side. Left to remember Sierra are brother Adam, sister Allyssa, her parents, and many friends and family. Everyone that had the opportunity to meet Sierra was positively affected by her huge smile, her exuberant welcome, and her very soft fur! Sierra embodied love! She was social. Well mannered. Intelligent. Always curious. Her uniqueness made her as though she was a small human in a four-legged fur coat. Sierra was a super travelling companion on our vacations and city excursions. We will miss her energetic welcome home greetings, the evening snuggles on the love seat, and herding us at bedtime. We will take solace that she is no longer suffering or in any discomfort, her beautiful soul is free, and her abundant energy is around all of us wherever the future takes us. We will always be thankful that Sierra chose us to be her family and that she shared all of her life lessons with us. Sierra, we will always love you and cherish your memories. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Play well in the meadow until we meet again! 💞🐾🌈💞🐾🌈💞🐾🌈
Sassy came to our family a few weeks after we rescued her brother, Mittens. She had been rehomed a few times from some bad houses, so she was terrified of everything. She hid in closets and under the bed, and hissed at anyone that came too close. But I always knew there was something special about her, and never gave up. Slowly she started to come out of the closet to spend time with me, and soon she grew into a cat with huge personality! She would use her paws to hook around your arm, and meow loudly for what she wanted. She’d drink out of your water cup or the bathtub faucet. She picked her favourite flavours of Fancy Feast and would scream when you gave her the wrong one. When you would knit, she’d play with the yarn. When you went to bed, she’d jump on the counter and knock over food. She’d start boxing you when you pet her, and when you left on a trip – she’d pee in your suitcase. Mittens and her moved out with me and we had a few amazing years together, especially when we moved in with my boyfriend Tyler. He fell in love with Sassy, and she fell in love with him. She cuddled up with him, let him pick her up and hold her, and would meow for him to wake up so she could get his attention. It was like she had waited her whole life for him – she was my best friend for many years but she was always destined to be his princess. Sassy grew from a shy little girl to the most empowered and friendly cat around. She had a huge presence that we loved so much, and will always miss.
We adopted Sadie from the Regina Humane Society in October of 2014. She’s a Boston Terrier/Pug cross. She instantly won our hearts. Her favourite activities included looking out the window for cats or kids, licking hands, cuddling, and teasing her brother Sox. Her favourite treats were Tim Bits. Sadly she got pancreatic and liver cancer and on August 22, 2018 we made the very hard decision to put her out of her pain. She’ll be greatly missed.
