George the lynx has to say good-bye to his bestfriend Kajeeka
An unexpected tragedy hit us today, Kajeeka our sweet lynx has passed. She wasn’t feeling very well the past couple of days so we decided to have our vets look at her. Blood work and x-rays showed kidney failure, anemia and a possible mass on her kidney. We made the decision to help her pass so she would not have to endure any more pain or illness. Our hearts go out to George, who was her guardian and loved her very much. The two were inseparable and this loss is going to be hard for him so please keep him in your thoughts. After we helped Kajeeka pass, we brought her back to George for him to say good-bye. Kajeeka had a pretty rough start to life, first being completely declawed and then losing her hearing and eyesight. She also lost one of her eyes completely. But none of those things slowed her down. She loved anything to do with scents; perfumes, lowry’s, catnip, you name it and she rubbed on it. She loved George most of all,
often claiming him as her own by peeing on him when anyone walked by. No matter what she was doing, George was always near. We still can’t believe this happened. Kajeeka was such a wonderful girl, so full of life it’s hard to believe that hers is over. She will live on in our memories though and we will do our best to comfort George in his time of need. We are so glad we were able to know you Kajeeka, we hope wherever you are now all the colors are bright and the scents are never ending.
You can help Kajeeka’s memory live on by purchasing her memorial stone for The Sanctuary.
