Ralph, our beautiful blonde boy fell ill early in the week and, based on a bleak prognosis and his continued weakened condition, we made the agonizing decision to send him on his way to Rainbow Bridge Friday, December 21st. Though our hearts are broken we know we did the best thing by him. He is in a peaceful place with minimal suffering at our hands and that is a comfort to us though we miss him terribly.
Ralph, a MEOW Foundation rescue cat, was already in middle age when he chose us to be his family in April 2001. We don’t know much about the first 8 to 10 years of Ralph’s life but we know he was loved more than anything in his final 7 years.
