R.I.P. Hippie 2

For several years now E has been running what I call the Home for Wayward Cats. The home started with E putting out food for one feral cat in particular. Eventually that expanded into a nice box full of fleece blankets next to the front porch for the cat to sleep in. Soon two other cats came around and let themselves be fed and given soft, warm beds of their own.

Fast forward to now and you'll find three cats sleeping in our shed every night. They have a nice oil heater to keep them warm during the Winter. Yeah, the feral cats aren't so feral any more.

I'm sad to say tonight our shed only holds two feral cats. Sweet and mellow Hippie 2 passed away today. She came to us already old for a feral cat. Her health over the past few years hasn't been great. She was constantly battling colds. The vet's suggestion of pulling all her teeth (they weren't in good shape at all) didn't help. This week we found out why...she had a tumor that ended up creating infection deep within her inner ear. She wasn't able to walk without falling over. Her appetite was practically non-existent. Due to the location of the tumor and the inner ear infection that wasn't going to be cured by antibiotics we decided to give her a peaceful end.

Hippie 2 is finally pain free but we'll miss her. She was a good cat.
