We remember Louie today and rejoice in the warm and happy home he had with his adopter, a Pet Haven foster, from Feb. 20, 2010 until May 2, 2010.

He died overnight in his sleep after failing for the last few days. He had 3 large tumors in his chest.

Louie was most fortunate to have a family to love him in his last months. He had sunny windows to sleep in, soft furniture to climb up on, a bed in which he could sleep with his owner, food available when he wanted it. Quite a change from being dumped out the door to suffer frostbite and starvation.

Louie recovered well, gained weight, grew healthy hair and gave affection, had cat friends and folks who visited him too.

How old was Louie? We don't know and he wasn't telling. We knew he was elderly when he was picked up at impound. The vet who examined him looked him in the eyes and said, "Louie, you are old!"

Lucky Louie -
