On Friday, June 19, 2009 we lost our sweet Vanessa (pictured on left). Vanessa had a fast-growing and inoperable tumor, starting in her oviduct, that had metastasized and was approaching her spine. She died peacefully on the operating table, under anesthesia.

Vanessa will be fondly remembered as a cheerful and loyal girl with a strong clear voice and two yellow dots on back of her head where she liked to be scritched. She was a good companion to Stephen, on the right in the picture above, and was a good friend and roommate to all in her foster home.

Thank you Mickaboo for giving this little girl a chance at life and to her foster Dad for providing such a wondeful home for Vanessa in her final months.
