A happy healthy Tarzan the cat as seen below.
A delightful cat….he likes to sleep on books and papers as a pillow.
Sharkie Jane as seen above, passed away and had many ills, costing in hospital assessments and specialist care over $5000.00 above maintenance care. None of her minor ills which were costly took her life, she passed of cancer.
She is the inspiration to share my experience to have sufficient funds dedicated to pet care in case of need.
