On Saturday October 13, 2012 sometime after 1:00 PM our beloved cat Angel passed away in peace at Boundary Animal Hospital in Burnaby, BC. We tried absolutely everything we could to help Angel get better, but toward the last two weeks of her life, her health deteriorated so rapidly; it accelerated so badly that her left eye looked like it was being consumed by the infection. It was hard to look at her from her left side as the skin and flesh looked as though they were rotting away. Angel no longer sat in the sun as she was too weak and sick to jump up onto the window shelf. We had to end her suffering and as a result we stopped her pain. Angel became too old and sick to fight whatever was literally eating her.
Our friends Katy and Gerald were there during Angel’s goodbye. Other people wanted to be there too but did not make it. Angel meant a lot to many people. She touched the hearts of those from both Nanaimo and Vancouver. Angel was a strong and stubborn cat who would eat ravenously within one hour of completing surgery! She surprised us with the way she defied the effects from many of her health issues. She is a memorable example of cats having nine lives.
We thank everyone for your support toward Angel’s health and well-being. We leave you with this video directed by our friend David Simmons with Angel starring as the cat in this short film. And below this film are the final two vet bills for Angel.
Rest in peace Angel. Stay with us in our hearts.
