Goodbye to Shanzi and Puddy

Jane's two cats, Shanzi and Puddy, have left our family for good. They were taken to the vet for boarding about one week ago because they had become too much work for us in the midst of everything else.

Puddy (18 years old) was adopted by someone already, but Shanzi is ill, and the vet recommended that we put her down, so after 14 years with her, it's time to say goodbye.

Shanzi was Jane's baby, and in many ways, very similar to her. On any given evening, she could often be found wrapped around Jane's neck sleeping away. At night, Shanzi would sleep on top of Jane (she only weighed about 6 pounds).

So tonight, we say goodbye to a couple of long-time family members. You will be missed.

Hi Jane and famuly,

I have been leaqving comments but don't see them posted. Anyway, Happy Mothers Day Jane I ove you sis! I was so sad to hear about Shanzi. I loved giving her meals when I was there.(And Putty) I have moments when I wish I could zap myself to your house to see your smile. Dad is getting better but not as fast as I thought he would. I know Jane would want me to stay with him, so that is what I am going to do. I Love you sis, always and forever.....
