Our Beloved Raisin

Today we announce with great sadness the loss of one of BCC’s long-term residents and kindest souls. Many of you were fortunate to know Raisin, as he was the first cat in our shelter before it was even completed in February 2011. Raisin was an older FIV+ cat who was lucky enough to finally find his fur-ever home this past November. We chose Raisin to be the face of BCC’s Christmas card this year because his story was so inspiring. Even though it took him many years to find his place in the world, for the last few months of his life, Raisin had a loving family who cherished him and showed him the kind of home every cat should have.

We were devastated to hear of Raisin’s passing this past Wednesday. We are so thankful to the couple that adopted Raisin and took him into their care and made his last few months blissful and beautiful. It is a wonderful thing to hear of an older cat finally finding a home, and we are sorry that Raisin could not have stayed with his new family longer. Every animal deserves a loving family and we are so happy you were able to have yours, Raisin. Rest in peace.
