Thank you to Caring Pathways for your donation to the Morris Animal Foundation in memory of my beloved cat, Smokey.

When I adopted Smokey from a shelter in Pasadena, CA I was told he was 6 years old. He added so much to my life all the 11 years we were together.

For over 3 years his liver enzymes had been rising and I decided a year ago that I would not have him poked and prodded any more (plus he would never take medicine!) and he would give me the sign that his quality of life was gone. It came so quickly, but I appreciated knowing that Caring Pathways could help us both with a humane and peaceful end, without prolonged suffering!

Here is Smokey when first adopted (on the quilt) and three years ago.
