Spyder was a tuxedo cat born in 2003, one of three small kittens turned in to Fairfield Animal Shelter in a shoebox which was duct-taped shut. We soon found homes for her two sibs, but she remained in our care, waiting for her permanent home. In 2008 she was diagnosed with Lymphoma. While we treated her Lymphoma successfully with chemotherapy, early in the process Feline Leukemia surfaced. Her days were cut short by the Leukemia, and we lost Spyder on May 21, 2008. This Memorial Page is named in honor and memory of Spyder and all the other pets we have adopted out when we are notified that they have crossed Rainbow Bridge. A hand-made spider in the pet's color(s) is sent to the adoptive parents, which serves as a sun catcher, Christmas Tree Ornament, or just a gentle reminder of our gratitude toward their kind deed of adopting a pet in need.
