Rest in Peace Susan Storm. January 17, 2023
Note from Kathy:
Not too long ago we unexpectedly lost our shelter patriarch Scooge, & now I’m heartbroken to report the sad news of Susan Storm’s passing…???? Even though Susan got a clean bill of health at her most recent veterinary visit (which is unusual for a cat of her advanced age), our shelter matriarch was a tough cookie her whole life, & left on her own terms…
Just Monday afternoon, I mentioned to a volunteer that I wasn’t sure how much longer she had left despite a good check up because of her unkempt fur and unsteady gait. We agreed that it was simply old age and I gave her some squeezable cat treat before she went up to her usual spot on top of the cages to rest… Then Tuesday morning, a volunteer found her passed away, laying peacefully where we had last seen her. My personal comfort is knowing that she had been taken care of until the very end…
Thank you all for loving & caring for Susan during her lifetime here at the shelter, & most particularly our med volunteers and Susan’s sponsors over the years. Everyone who helps at the shelter or supports our work was helping her too because this was her home…
Rest In Peace our dear Susan Storm, now you truly are your namesake from “The Fantastic Four” movie: The Invisible Woman… We can’t see you anymore, but you’ll remain forever in our hearts…????
This beauty is Susan Storm and she has called Cat Guardians “home” for many years. She is a 17 year old gal that can typically be found hanging out on the top of the cages watching over the other current residents. Although this sweet girl is a bit on the shy side, you can always find her snuggled up with her fellow shelter mates. With the love and care of the Cat Guardians family, she has become accustomed to the shelter environment and is thriving at her age. Please consider sponsoring our oldest resident to help her continue living her best life at the shelter. We appreciate your kindness and support!
