Who is Frankie?

 

On March 13, 2008, Frankie and hundreds of his friends were rescued from a veritable death camp for cats. These cats were afflicted with very atypical infectious diseases, and required intensive care to even have a chance at survival. 

 

Frankie was one of these special felines.  He had a great spirit and love of life - walking on leash, going for car rides, and purring, even after a tracheostomy and multiple surgeries to open up his airway. 

 

He fought bravely, but in the end, we could not undo what the disease had done. All we can do now is honor him and the others who lost their lives by doing everything possible to prevent this from happening again - fighting animal cruelty in its many forms.
