Cat Bill

Today we released our beautiful, sweet Bill from a body that was failing him.

We rescued this special boy from the Downey shelter almost 2 years ago in honor of animal rights warrior Bill Dyer. Human Bill had an affinity for senior cats so when he passed, we sought out to save a senior from the shelter in tribute. [Bill Dyer - Animal Rights Activist EXTRAORDINAIRE]

Cat Bill was a little shy at first but once he settled in here, he entrenched himself in all of our hearts as deeply as anyone ever has. Itís hard to put a finger on what was so phenomenal about (Cat) Bill... He had this other-worldliness about him. He possessed a confidence, wisdom, goodness, above-it-all-ness that conjures comparisons to the exceptionally great humans like Gandhi, King, Tubman and Goodall, as well as Human Bill himself!

Several months ago, Bill was diagnosed with the dreaded C-word. Weíve done everything we could to keep him as comfortable as possible for as long as we could but we knew it was time to say goodbye. Sweet Billywith the help of Dr. Carillo.

We will always love and miss our dear Bill but so grateful that he is free from the wretched cancer that was ravaging his body. We are profoundly grateful to Billís hero Aaron Leider and everyone else who has loved, cared for and donated for him. And to our wonderfully compassionate Dr. Carillo at Lake Elsinore Animal Hospital who truly loved Bill and has overseen his care in these difficult months.

Run Free Bill. Forever loved!
