A Note From Holly

Holly, our beloved Phil's mom, wrote us a message a little while ago after losing Phil. I wanted to share it during this special week though to kind of leave off on a good note.

So, finally, here it is - sweetness prevailing...

Hi Joyce,

Mom and I picked up Phillip’s ashes on Thursday, so he’s back home where he belongs. He was very loved, and I still cry every time I think about him...

I don’t ever want this sweet, brave, high-spirited little cat to ever be forgotten, so I have decided to do something in his memory. I wish I had deep pockets to start a foundation, but unfortunately, like most of us, my resources are limited, so I have set aside {what I could} in an account that I will add to as I can.

I think Phillip would be pleased if this money were used to help defray medical expenses for other cats with eye problems for whom medical or surgical intervention would relieve discomfort and/or prevent vision impairment, such as the procedure that both Phil and Wil underwent to remove their eyelashes that were abrading their corneas. Possibly with treatment costs not an issue, these beautiful, innocent creatures would be considered more adoptable...

I’m crying again and can’t see what I’m typing, so I must go. We’ll talk soon I hope. Thank you for all you are doing to help the animals.


Thank you, Holly. Thank you for loving Phil and thank you for making such a wonderful difference with your offer in memory of him. Tweet This

  1. Hi, my name is Kim, and I am a friend of Jen's. I also do Dachshund rescue work, and am a volunteer and writer for Special Needs cats at Tabby's Place, A Cat Sanctuary, Ringoes, NJ. I wrote monthly articles to kind folks who sponsored BEN, who was a cat afflicted with entropion (the medical term for eyelashes which have grown inward, scratching corneas). BEN had been left behind in an apartment with his sister cat GERI, when owners moved out, and were forced to live outside in all kinds of weather elements. Can you imagine the pain and discomfort poor BEN had to endure? Not only did he have to deal with survival, but with this very painful affliction as well. This went on for years....
    BEN and sister GERI were ultimately offered sanctuary at Tabby's Place. I learned alot about this condition while writing for him. In the past, it has not always been treated; today, the procedures are being perfected to do so. PLEASE-donate to this worthy cause! It will SO improve the quality of life for a cat that you care about!
    Thank you, Holly. Though we don't know each other, I feel your loss, and thank you for caring for Phil and Wil; there are many who would have considered them unadoptable.
    May God Bless you, at this difficult time.
