Heinekin – In Memory


Heineken is a domestic marbled Bengal. He was sent to a shelter after a horrible breeder was shut down.

Due to Heineken’s timid nature and health problems, he wasn’t adoptable to a regular home. He had chronic diarrhea that was not treated. It was so bad that Heineken prolapsed several times, where his colon would fall outside his body.

Thankfully, TWS has great veterinary support and through the work of our vet and staff, Heineken has been able to thrive with no relapse.


In Memory – September 2009

Heineken, a handsome Bengal, has passed away. Heineken came from a bad breeding situation before he was brought to a rescue group in New Mexico.

He was a very shy guy, had a prolapsed colon and was heartworm positive. That’s why he couldn’t be adopted out. We were fortunate enough to take in Heineken and give him a home more suitable for his personality and health issues.

Although he was shy, he still loved to play with the feather toy and wait for us by his habitat door telling us to hurry up with the treats.

Heineken had some health problems from the beginning. But it was, unfortunately, taking a turn for the worse. We took him to the vet and found that he had intestinal cancer. So we let him pass, knowing how much he was loved.

We know he is in a better place now, but we will still miss his beautiful green eyes and that unmistakable voice.
