I write this today 30th April 2015 – the day I lost one of the best friends;  it will be posted after his Peep lets the world know. My fellow AdventureCat and Nip Head has gone where I cannot follow – my heart is full of a deep grief for the loss of a truly great friend, cat blogger and gifted author cat. Today I blog today about my hero………

******

Nerissa The Cat @NerissaTheCat

******

‘Nissy’ as he was to his friends, was an utterly committed and fearless promoter of the rescue of cats at New York’s terrible ACC. With total and complete dedication he shared; day in and day out, week after week, the cats at risk there. This takes true heroism and massive courage and commitment. He sat there with his peep and shared each on on Facebook and Twitter so they might meet their own peep to rescue them.

  • Nissy rescue quotes to remember:
  • “Sharing is Caring”
  • “Sharing Saves Lives”

Nerissa The Cat @NerissaTheCat

Nissy’s family have posted here so please visit Nissy, his brothr Seville, and grieving Peeps.

Donations to honour Nissy can be sent to Team TNR via the Canada Helps donation site and this should take you to TeamTNR’s page, Team TNR is a small local Nova Scotia rescue helping neuter

Rest in Peace Nerissa the Cat, writer, blogger, cat advocate and rescuer.
