Tuesday, July 11, 2017 was a sad day for us. We put to sleep our beautiful, perfectly marked, 17-year-old tabby. As soon as we saw Ms. Harley, we knew she was a part of our family. Ms. Harley, freed from a shelter, spent the remaining 7 years of her life, loved and coddled and spoiled. She had been ailing the last few months, but we realized only recently how much pain she was enduring. Her leap into peace came with the help of Dr. Kim Simpson, a truly loving and compassionate veterinarian that helps people like us deal with the decisions to be made and the pain associated with a pet’s final hours. Her prayers at the end comforted us and they will be with us as we grieve Harley’s passing. SG and JH
