The Neko-Sanctuary Chronicle 2017 June Sad month

June 2017 was the saddest month in these ten years.

Botchan and Miiko aren’t at the bike parking lot. Siam, the most popular cat, isn’t at the back gate of the elementary school.

Botchan, the last time I saw him was May 28. He had a skinny body with mouth trouble. He ate slowly.

The week started with 29, I received an email from M-san. She wrote Botchan couldn’t eat any food and not showed up at the feeding time. The last time M-san saw him, he took a very rough breath that could be seen from a distance.

It has been rainy season, but had few rains and very hot. He died of dehydration. I think.

Miiko, she had a tumor again. She just had a surgery to remove it in February.
She couldn’t eat any food for about 1 week.
the last time I saw her was June 22. She was sitting on the ground, and said goodbye to us.

And June 26, one of the neighbors found her in her garden, took her to the vet, but she died the next day.

Miiko used to have a owner. When she appeared at the Neko-Sanctuary, she was neutered and wore a collar. She always stayed at the bike parking lot, because she had been waiting her owner came back and took her home again, I think.

Siam, he died of dehydration too.
M-san and other cat lady rescued him and took him to the vet on Jun 11, but died June 12.

Siam  originally lived around one of cat ladies house 100 meters away from.
But he couldn’t get along with other cats, so he moved to the Neko-Sanctuary, the back gate of the elementary school.   He lived his last few years with Sambo, Tommy, and other cats happily.
We didn’t know how old he was. Vet said he was really old cat.

From July, I can’t see Botchan, Miiko,and Siam. I miss them very much.

It is always sad to lose a friend, but so many all at once! Thank you for keeping their memories alive.
