Cadi the Therapy Cat, RIP

It is with great sadness that I write about Cadi (Arcadia Grace) the Therapy Cat. She passed away on April 15, 2022. Or, as her human companion Ellen said, “she went to sit on the Lord’s lap.” She was born on July 23, 2006.

We loved Miss Cadi & enjoyed her many visits to the Park Library. She started visiting us in December 2014; her last visit with us was in December 2021.

She loved visiting us — and she would get annoyed if humans were in the room with her and not petting her. We have also enjoyed meeting her sisters Topaz and Vivo. Topaz went to set on the Lord’s lap in 2017, and Vivo joined the gang shortly thereafter.

We are grateful for knowing Cadi (and Topaz), and we hope to visit with Topaz again soon.
