This was Nemo, he was a ‘fospice’ care cat with us. We would not exchange a moment of his time with our family!

This picture is our Team Dash favourite, Nemo jumped nimbly on to the sunny Summer chair, back in January, and slept in soft contentment for a long, and happy, time.

    What a nice spot Nemo had there and what a nice home he had in his last days. It’s so kind of you to provide that for him.

    We agree with the others. A lovely place to take a nap, and a lovely family to spend the last days. Everybody (humans, animals – doesn’t matter) should spend their last days in peace and together with someone who cares.

    Oh Nemo looks so peaceful and happy. We have also done some fospice care. It’s really such a gift to give an animal a peaceful and loving home in his final days, weeks, months, etc. Thank you giving this gift to Nemo!
