Winston "Pookie" Beach

2000 – 2017

A stray cat happened upon my uncles’ home and had kittens in June, 2000.  When we saw the kittens we fell in love with one in particular and named him Pookie. 

Pookie enjoyed playing with his toys, at least till they all were pushed under the sofa!  When he wasn’t playing “fetch” with a straw, which he loved to do most, you could find Pookie in a warm sunny spot, napping. 

Orion “Big Kitty” Thompson

July 3, 2005 – February 15, 2017

Orion came into Aaron’s life as a kitten.  He loved to jump up into his arms to be held upside down, cradled like a baby.  Orion always slept with Aaron under the covers every night, curled up against his legs.

Aaron says that Orion was the, “sweetest cat I ever knew, always wanted to be near humans.  Never hissed once at anyone; he purred right up to the end.  His death, due to cancer, leaves a void that cannot be filled”.

Purra Helm

Born in Chandler, AZ, Purra was 6 weeks old when the Helm family adopted her.

Purra loved to sleep.  She also enjoyed being petted, to the point that if you stopped, she would attack you.  Purra, also, like to jump the dog gates.

The Helm family says, “She went from an unfriendly cat to a friendly cat in the last 5 years.   Purra, we love and miss you every day.”

Willie Smith

8/24/2000 – 12/30/2016

While Susan was shopping one day, she saw a make shift pet shop and went in.  Willie was in a baby play pen; their eyes met and it was love at first sight!  Susan’s favorite memory is from that day, “the first time I picked him up, he started talking to me and oh, the kisses he gave!  From then on he was a verbal boy when he wanted something and his kisses were my reward.”

Snooper Walsh

The Walsh’s’ son brought Snooper for a visit in 2002; he enjoyed the water and being able to run on his visit that he decided to stay.  Snooper loved the outdoors, especially chasing the squirrels. In his early years, Snooper liked to sit and sun bathe.  He enjoyed playing with his stuffed squirrel squeaker toy named, Baby.  And at 96 pounds, Snooper thought he was a “lap” dog.  He loved to climb into the laps of his family and take a nap, until in Snooper’s senior years, when his hip issues kept him from doing so.
