Bessy's Rescue Story

When I adopted Bessy in 1993, she was a homeless, unwanted, beautiful 1 1/2-year-old calico cat in a shelter. I can still picture her looking through her cage door with a “smile” on her face, starring at me. Right then and there “that was the cat for me.”

I later found out she had been adopted twice before but returned to the shelter. Let’s say, she had some personality quirks that needed adjusting. Bessy needed bonding time and patience and I was happy to give her that, And Bessy NEVER went back to the shelter.

Bessy was my cat for 19 wonderful years. Throughout those years she became a diabetic, developed a thyroid problem, then got severe kidney failure and passed on in June of 2011.

In honor of my wonderful, loving pet, Bessy, I have created a sanctuary where all unwanted, homeless cats are wanted, loved and provided a warm, nurturing home. Bessy’s Place is dedicated to those cats that are not as fortunate as my Bessy.

In Loving Memory & Honor of Bessy the Best!

IN HONOR AND MEMORY OF "JIMMY"

Starting off the new year not good. *Jimmy* our senior resident kitty cat has passed away. Jimmy was about 15 years old. He was a resident at MHS for about 9 years - he could not get adopted, had behavioral problems - to feisty. When we were in Weymouth, Jimmy was abandon with his feline brother and 2 dogs at our shelter. As he got older he then became a thyroid patient at MHS and did well for years. Jimmy was free roaming and would come and go as he pleased with Eclipse and the other cats. Jimmy loved hanging out with his felines friends.

Having Jimmy for several years, we believe by his actions, he was mistreated, however Jimmy was abandon at MHS - it was meant to be. Jimmy was treated with royalty, love and cared for everyday. Jimmy had a sponsor person named "Robin" for several years, she was so dedicated and cared so much for Jimmy. We certainly Thank Very Much our sponsorships for there love and dedication.

Jimmy was definitely a BIG part of MHS. Jimmy will be missed, BUT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!! Over the rainbow bridge he goes and meets up with his lifelong felines, his friends !! Love You Jimmy, from ALL of us at MHS !!

JIMMY - GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!
