Dearest Chardonnay

It is with pain in our hearts that we have to announce the passing of one of our guests Chardonnay. She was a spirited little calico cat that had travelled the world with her family, originally rescued in South America.
She had been ill for some time, thyroid problems that sometimes are hard to control, and old age taking a toll on her. She stayed with us in November and she was doing fine having a little walk and eating well and looking at the world from her bed, but she was frail.
At the end of December we heard that she had gotten worse with problems in her legs and difficulty breathing, she passed away 27/12.
No matter how old they are, we’re never totally prepared for them leaving our lives. All our sympathy goes to her family that greatly misses her. We will miss her visits too.
