Pictures of Penny are when she was younger and older- before she passed on :(

We have very sad news, our "Penny Lane" has passed on to the rainbow bridge. She was about 18 years old. She had many symptoms of having a " blood clot in her head" Penny's quality of life went down hill very fast.

Penny is one of the hundreds and hundreds of adult cats and senior cats that were surrendered to us or abandon at our shelter or found as strays. We decided to become partly a sanctuary as well , because of all the cats that had health or behavioral problems as they were passed by for adoption and became "life longer's." However we have adopted hundreds and hundreds of older/senior cats into loving caring kind homes as well. Penny and her sister Tobi - they both came in together as surrendered felines so we kept them together and both lived as life longer's. Penny & Tobi were the most sweetest, loving, cats ever. Tobi died at 15 years old - kidney failure. Penny continued to live her life at Massachusetts Humane Society. When Penny came in she had very bad "UTI infections, they would come and go many times, so we continued to care for her with medicine and TLC.

Penny was very vocal, she would let out a yell so loud your ears would ring, she wanted attention NOW, and or her WET FOOD now. Penny was a real talker, that you could even have a conversation with her in "cat talk" - she was amazing !! Penny was free roaming - she could come and go as she pleased. Penny's disposition was very special and just beautiful all around !! We will all miss Penny very much, she will always have a special place in our hearts and at Massachusetts Humane Society. Penny was part of Massachusetts Humane Society for 11 years! Massachusetts Humane Society was her home!

Massachusetts Humane Society wants to Thank Very Much our Shelter Veterinarian - Dr. Joanne Keith for helping Penny medically and being there for us and most of all "Penny".

Rest In Peace Penny, beautiful sweet loving lady !
