Buttercup

Joy Tremblay & Geoff Lindsay

In memory of our beloved Buttercup, whom we lost in October 2020. We miss him every day. Buttercup was a stray cat living on the street in Charlottetown. He was rescued by a former CAT member and brought to us to foster. He wasn't in our house five minutes and we knew he was staying. We have no idea how old he was. Our vets said he could be anywhere from 7 to 11 years old. He was dirty, flea covered and very hungry and timid. For the first two years with us he would panic and hide any time we had a visitor come in the house. For a large cat he could hide extremely well. But over time he became very relaxed and knew there was no reason to panic and loved socializing with Geoff's elderly parents when they visited every Sunday. At first he did not want to go outside in the yard with Harry and us (Our cats never are allowed out alone, though we have a fenced secure yard). He would only go out in the evening and we think he only went out in the dark to search for food when he was a stray. But over the three years he lived with us he came to relax and enjoy sitting in the grass in the sunny yard and visiting our catnip garden and having a good munch, watching the birds and the squirrels. (Both Harry and Buttercup had never seen squirrels like they have here in Ontario, an army of tree rats that swarm for peanuts). His temperament was gentle and loving, and he became my best friend, spending time with me talking and purring and loved to be in my lap. I am in tears writing this as I miss him so much. He loved to lie on his back and roll around and do ballet stretcher-cises. He was so elegant and loveable. We only had him for a little over three years but it seemed like he had been with us always. He will aways be with me in my heart.

Oliver

Jane and Harry

The memorial is for Oliver, our cat who passed on June 9th.
Oliver came into our lives after having been abandoned in Charlottetown and rescued by the Cat Action Team over 10 years ago. It was apparent he was so appreciative of his new home and his sweet personality asserted itself. He had many characteristics of a puppy dog and would stare at us with big eyes, sending his love. His purr, however, was all cat and very loud. We miss him terribly and, as with all our departed cats, he left too soon. Our home is very lonely without him.

PheePhee

Nancy M Doucette

On September 8th, 1997 right about the time I was going through a very tramatic time in my life my beautiful long haired grey kitty was born in Kensington, P.E.I. I'd always wanted a long hair grey female kitten & had a couple of times had ones that didn't match this description come my way but loved them lots as well. My cousin Gloria & I were going ready to go out (I think to the Gong Show at the French Club) one Saturday & Gloria spotted on the T.V. about 2 kittens to meet this description in Kensington, quickly I called the number - Gloria took me for all I needed & we headed to Kensington, later Gloria told me she was sure I'd come out with both kittens, truth is I wanted to but feared being able to afford all the expenses included with needles, spaying etc so I just chose one, many a year after I wished I'd have found a way to take both as PheePhee didn't stay with us on earth very long as cancer all through her took her from me at 2 1/2 years old but during that 2 1/2 years she more than filled my heart with all the love I needed to take me through the tramatic time I referred to above (I had to leave a situation with someone I truly loved) - my Grandmother had succumbed the year before to a 4 year battle with Alzhiemers, my Dad had suffered his third major stroke & my only child had moved across Canada in August of the same year - I felt so alone & yet this beautiful kitty became my world & never once did she demand of me, break my trust - she loved me without conditions as animals can do. When I first got her I couldn't decide on her name for a day or two - unusual for me - then Lewis MacPhee happened to call me & as I looked at his number on the phone it struck me I'd name her after Lewis, a man I always respected greatly thus PheePhee - after that he'd say to me "How is My Cat?" - I so loved hearing him say that & I felt she did belong partially to him in name... After Lewis passes I used to mention PheePhee to Lewis' wife Margaret - ironically PheePhee passed on almost a year to the day of Lewis with the same heartwretching disease - cancer... I think of PheePhee often - glad I didn't let her suffer, when I realized I could not make her well with medications I let her go with love - holding her while she passed in peace, something I do with all my furry friends... I will never forget PheePhee, I will never forget how Gloria so willingly took me to Kensington to get my precious cat - when I got my puppy Scamphill 2 years later, PheePhee wasn't too impressed but she tolerated Scamphill somehow knowing for me another animal gets their own place in my heart they don't steal what belongs to each one individually. Gloria is not the animal person I am but I am so thankful she understands totally my love of animals & I am so grateful she was watching my T.V. as she waited for me to get ready to go out & jotted the number so I could with her help fetch this beauty picture inclulded in this post...
Love (PheePhee's MoM) Nancy

Scamphill

Nancy M Doucette

Scamphill D.O.B. 13 MAY 00 - D.O.D. 09 MAY 09 was a loving companion to me in every way - She was also the loving companion of my father the late Edward (Eddy) Doucette - I believe she took me through losing him my best friend & confident so though it hurt to see her go she had a huge tumor & I let her go peacefully at the hands of my trusted Vet - Dr. Dave Thomas knowing she would be with my Dad. I'll miss her always but know she Rests In Peace. SpayAid wasn't used for her but I used them for my dog I have now Eddy & so appreciate all they do.

Jed

Nancy M Doucette

Jed D.O.B. 24 MAR 09 - D.O.D. 06 OCT 18 | Today 06 OCT 09 I had to say a Final Goodbye to my Beloved Cat (Jed) named after my Dad Joseph Edward Doucette. A more loving cat I have not known as he took a piece of me with him. He was suffering & a long time ago I promised my Dad also an animal lover if a pet of mine was suffering I'd let that pet go peacefully with me there with that pet as I did that today as always it's never easy to say to Goodbye & I know his full sister (Calleigh) is sure to notice the void in our home. Not sure if my dog Eddy will or not but something tells me he will. Jed I Love You and I Miss You Already. May you suffer no more & are with your sister Cloey over the rainbow bridge. R.I.P. Love Your Human Mom ~ Forever & A Day. Your Kitty Sister Calleigh. Your Doggy Brother Eddy
