Those who passed away

Willow Willow On January 11, 2017, we made the difficult decision to help Willow cross the Rainbow Bridge. Willow had developed cancer of the mouth.

Blackie Blackie Blackie was the first cat Anna tried to trap from the cat colony, so it was with heavy heart we said our good-byes on July 20, 2017. Blackie developed Pancreatitis and when he stopped eating his treats, we knew it was time.

Olivia Olivia Olivia was only 4 months old; however, she escaped from our foster’s home and was struck by a car. Although all efforts were made to help her, she succumbed to her injuries on September 26, 2017.

Slate Slate On November 9, 2017, we received an email from Slate’s mom that he was rushed to the vet. As Slate had an enlarged heart and was struggling to breathe, the family made the difficult decision to end his suffering.

Happy (formerly Fusser) Happy (formerly Fusser) passed way on April 3, 2016 with FIP. Below is one of the family’s fondest memory of Happy waiting for them to sit down at the dinner table with several other guests they had over for dinner. One of the guests was a food photographer and she had taken this wonderful picture of Happy. He was clearly a huge part of their family. We are sadden by the loss of such a happy, young cat.

Laurel Laurel – Our beloved Laurel is greatly missed by his brother (Hardy) and us. Laurel lost his battle with upper respiratory on October 2, 2016. With tears running down my face, I write this post knowing I will no longer have Laurel greet me at the door or having him sit on my lap while I work on the computer. The feelings of helplessness was and still overwhelming and the emptiness unbearable.


Mickey came into our care when his elderly caregiver could no longer take care of him. While in Lucky Cat Haven’s care, Mickey went from 11.96 to 8.6 kg and was moving around a lot more and interacting with his foster parents. Mickey always had a purr, a cuddle to give and always freely gave us love. However, during the last month, we saw a gradual decline in his health and at our last vet visit we found he was riddled with cancer and bone growth. Not wanting him to suffer any longer, John wished him “safe travel” as he held Mickey close, stared into those big green eyes, and watched him go over the rainbow bridge. We will miss Mickey.

Lucky Lucky is the name sake of our organization, he lived nine years and three months. We like to think he got one year for each cat life and a few months on good behavior. He was found almost dead in a garbage can at three months of age when we first rescued him, and passed away because he was born with a heart defect. He will be forever missed.

Peanut Peanut was a huge heart break for us, never had we cheered and tried so hard to help a great kitten as this little one. She was one of six kittens from a litter, the smallest and most fragile. She was badly malnourished only the size of a house mouse, I held her close as she fought to stay with us, but eventually passed away. This website has her in a few videos squeaking out loud, she was so full of life.

Spitfire This is little Spitfire, Her passing was a shock to us, she was playing one day and was gone the next, just that fast. She was Hurricane's sister, we rushed her to the vet clinic when we realized she was not eating and seemed weak, we had her for only a week. I can not say more, it is too painful.

Lotus Lotus or as her new parents called her Mitsa, passed away February 22, 2014. Her parents and us are deeply saddened by the loss of such an amazing little cat, she would spend time sleeping with each member of the family every night. Her passing is a mystery to LHC, the vet clinic determined the passing was due to FIV. We had checked for this before she was adopted out, so are unsure of how she contracted this disastrous cat disease. We will forever remember her as the kitten most attracted to what our feet were doing under the bed sheets at night, as she attacked them with ferocity.
