Red was a senior lady who found herself
alone in our care at the age of sixteen. She was grumpy and ornery but won over our hearts
during the short she was with us.
Sabrina came to Hearthside with a litter of kittens
back in May of 2002. She was a wonderful mother, but was very shy towards people and was never adopted.
She enjoyed many healthy years in a foster home and will be missed by her foster family.
She passed away in February of 2009.
Miss Kitty had been with us for 15 years from the time she was a kitten. Even though she was never adopted,
she lived a long and happy life in her foster home. She passed away due to kidney failure in the fall of 2008 and will be missed.
Tucker was born to a feral mother and humanely trapped and brought to Hearthside at 4 months of age. He was a
beautiful, long-haired, tiger and white boy with serious medical issues, including a heart murmur and an enlarged heart.
He enjoyed the company of his sister Tinker and the other cats in his foster home for eight years. He succumbed to his medical problems in January of 2006 and will not be forgotten.
Clipper came to Hearthside 10 years ago in a 'Have-a-Heart' trap.
He was a very un-people-oriented Special Needs boy. Clipper was a good
the other cats, and very talkative to the people and animals in the house.
He could not be handled or touched but was affectionate toward his
caregiver, although he nipped her in back of the leg quite regularly!

by the people and animals in his foster family.

Bernie had been in foster
care with Hearthside for many years
after being dumped in the parking lot of a veterinary hospital by his former
family. Bernie had been declawed, leaving
him very insecure and unpredictable. Without his claws he sometimes used
his teeth, but despite his temper, he was
a very sweet and loving cat most of the time. He passed away in June 2004
and will be missed by his foster family.
Brownie is remembered by her rescuers and caregivers, after spending
several years in foster care at Hearthside. She was at least 20 years
old and quite arthritic, but
in relatively good health except for a thyroid condition. She had five
wonderful years with her foster family, and died quietly and peacefully in
little cat house with her cat friends by her side.
Ebony recently passed away quietly in her foster home after spending
8 years as a Hearthside cat. She was left alone at the age of 11 when her
owner died and she never recovered from the loss. She would always seem to
for her owner any time the door opened. She spent many happy and
comfortable years with
us, but we hope that she has found peace and happiness on the other side of
the Rainbow Bridge.

busy country road following a cold, blustery January storm. She stayed in

fondly by her rescuers and foster

her foster family
who cared for her since October 23, 1998. She was brought to Hearthside in

feral mother and brother. During her 5 years with us, she never wanted
anything to do with humans,
but enjoyed the company of other cats, especially her brother Tucker, who
misses her greatly.
Willow passed away in the
fall of 2003 after almost 10 years in foster care
at Hearthside. She ruled the roost at her foster home, in spite
of being quite elderly and having chronic breathing and sinus problems.

easily and continue to boss all the other cats that passed before her. We
will miss her terribly.
