With much sadness we inform you Minnie Mouse, one of our garden cats, was euthanized yesterday morning. It appears that she had been struck by a car. Her injuries were severe, and after consulting with a local veterinarian Walli Raninger made the difficult decision to end Minnie’s suffering.
As some of you know, Minnie arrived at the garden more than eight years ago. Walli adopted the tiny tortoise colored kitten and gave her a home where she stayed until recent times when Minnie began having trouble accepting apartment confinement.
Released to the garden last spring and under the watchful care of Walli and the other Garden Cat Committee members, the mature Minnie Mouse relaxed, thrived and joined the other cats on rodent patrol. Though she could be feisty from time to time, she never missed a petting opportunity and will be sorely missed by those who got to know her.
Please join us in expressing sympathy to Walli and the Committee who cared for Minnie, a cat who was never, ever a mouse.
