Cali came to our shelter after her human mother had passed away and her human father had moved to a nursing home.

The vet's office said she was in late stage renal disease and asked if we couldn't take her in for the 2-3 months she had left as a hospice situation.

That was in January 2012, at the age of 19.

Cali passed away peacefully last night at the age of 22 years and 5 months.

There was no one that met the 4 lb spitfire calico that didn't come away amazed and in love. She will be missed.

Oh Jeff I am sorry. That's quite a life to reach such a grand old age and considering her condition to live another 3 years is quite something. Now she gets to see her human mom again. Run free Cali, you touched many people lives

Sympathy on your loss. Empty cat-shape spaces are not nice.

Was the vet wrong about renal failure? It's amazing she lived all those years if the vet was right, that's quite a remarkable achievment, proof of excellent care. :) Wonderful of you to give her a home after her forever-home died out.

I'm sorry Jeff :(

It's wonderful that she lived such a long life. Like eldercat said, that is proof of excellent care.

I'm sorry you are missing her, losses like these can sure take a toll on our heart. :(
To hear she lived 3 years longer than expected despite her diagnosis and losing her original owners and home--wow, she must've been a real fighter at heart. It's amazing to see how animals can overcome things despite what life throws at them. Cali was super lucky to have found her final years with you.

Wishing you lots of peace and strength during these times. I'm sure Cali is happily telling her human mom what a great home she had with you.
