I rescued Bert back in 2015 when I was helping with a large TNR effort in a mobile home community. Bert was trapped an unneutered, friendly boy wearing an old flea collar. No one in the neighborhood claimed him so I worked on getting him healthy and learning to once again trust humans.
While working with him, I feel hard for him. I loved him so much.
Bert was such a gentle, wise soul with so much love to offer.
Once he was healthy, I found him his purrfect forever home.
I received word yesterday from his human that he crossed the rainbow bridge after a courageous fight with cancer. She says he was such a gift to her and her family. He brought so much joy, love, and laughs to everyone. Such a special boy. I'm grateful for the update as I think about him often.
Be free Bert - I so look forward to more of your delightful tummy rubs when I see you again.
