There are some animals who bring a light so great into our lives...
That even after they leave
their light remains
The oldest living cat resident on the ranch left us on October 25th after 19 1/2 years.
Charlotte was one of the original residents of Painted Rain Ranch and was born in June 2003.
Rescued from a neglectful home as a tiny kitten and she was so sick her eyes were sealed shut from the infection.
She and her three littermates had upper respiratory infections and were weak and malnourished.
We didn't think they would make it but all survived.
We lost her brother Jack earlier this year, and her two other brothers, Merlin and Billy, several years ago.
Small but mighty, Charlotte was a force to be reckoned with.
Nothing slowed her down. Deafness was not a problem either. She lost her hearing about two years ago but she always knew when I was opening a jar of baby food.
She ruled the roost here on the ranch and will be missed every day.
Rest peacefully, sweet girl, in the arms of angels
Gentleman Jack sweet angel
We love you!
Always happy and smiling
Run like the wind sweet boy
Sweet Crazy Lil
