Tango left us on May 29th, 2008.
Tango was brought to us on Christmas Day 1994 from our good friend David
with a bow on her head!
He found two little feral cats under this porch at age 2 weeks maybe-
mother gone. He named them skitters and skatters!
Not sure if we got skitters or skatters? I was into naming my cats (I've
had a few!!!) dance names as I have done some dancing!--o.k. Thus, came the
name Tango because she was "slinking around the house!
Unfortunately in 1995 she got bitten by possibly a possum and had several
surgeries to take out the poison. The last surgery was actually a
liposuction. She lived fine for the next 13 years.
In the past month, she developed a baseball size lump on the back leg
that was operated on 13 years ago. The vet opened it up and did some
testing; it turned out to be a malignant tumor which wouldn't heal. We
kept her on antibiotics and tried to decide when to have her "put to sleep."
I prayed to find the answer and my path was to my good neighbor Jonette who
helped me make th edecision. John came home and we had a sedative for her
ashes preserved in an urn. Attached are photos of our beautiful cat Tango.
