Fenway Nanjizal Bay of Furrydance...July 17, 1995 to February 4, 2010


It is with sadness, we learned today that Nani, the cat the CB knows as the cat in the pink wig that is my avatar, passed away during the night. But is with smiles that I am grateful to the family that gave her a home filled with love and affection, after she was returned to me when she was 12 years old, not because she had severe HCM, but because the new wife's cats and she did not get along.

Not surprisingly, that marriage did not last, but the love and tender care that Alisha, Calloway and Marley gave to her enabled her to live out her golden years knowing she was loved. They knew when they gave her a home, that they may lose her at any time to her heart condition, and she just had a wellness exam and labwork and while, at 14 years old, she was going into kidney insufficiency, and couldn't see very well now due to lenticular sclerosis, and we found she had fairly severe spondylosis, her family made some changes in their home to make her life more comfortable.

Last night she didn't want to eat all her dinner, and Alisha said she was very clingy and purring in her lap...maybe Nani knew then she was failing and wanted to spend time being loved and held close. There will be an empty place in their hearts now, that will take time to heal, but may they find joy in remembering the time the shared with her...

  28. This was the first Furry Dance Cat picture I saw a few years ago. I loved that straw hat and just knew that the person who would do such a thing to a cat had to be special. A good rest for Nanji and my condolences.
