This is my Zephyr. We adopted her in the summer of 1999 as a kitten hoping that she would be a good companion to our other cat Wasabi. Wasabi had other ideas. Unfortunately they never became buddies but agreed to live mostly agreeably together with us. We had 13 love filled years together.

Several months ago Zephyr was diagnosed with a kidney condition. She had lost a fair amount of weight but treatment seemed to be working and she gained some of it back. What we did not know is that she actually had cancer. This week she became very ill and could keep no food down. A trip to the vets and some tests and x-rays revealed she had a large tumor. Needless to say John and I were devastated as further treatment would not likely have a positive result. John and I decided to bring her home to spend one last day with us. Yesterday we took her back to the vets and said goodbye.
Zephyr will be missed enormously. John and I loved her big time and I am pretty sure she loved us too.
