My heart is heavy as I have been informed of the loss of sweet Chico who I cared for many times.
Although I love what I do there is a down-side to this type of job. I have had to bid farewell to yet another of my handsome kitty-clients. This gorgeous big boy has passed away. Chico was a quiet, aloof cat who lived with Max. He loved his outdoor life by day and his comfy couch at night.
He had wonderful owners who cared for him deeply and will miss him. Because he was adopted from a shelter his age was not known for sure but he was in his senior years. It seems his kidneys began to fail and his owners made the decision to not have him suffer. I will always think of how he loved his treats and would always be waiting against the sliding door for me when I would arrive to feed him dinner. It's hard to think that I won't see him again.
"Farewell, sweet Chico. I will miss you so much."
