The End of an Era

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Shady Bill in the early afternoon of Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Shady Bill arrived at our door more than 16 years ago as a wild cat needing a permanent home and ruled the roost thereafter. It's unclear how old he was when we first met but, suffice to say, he lived a long and glorious life.

Never one for vigorous exercise, Shady grew sizable over the first months until he realized that the food wasn't going to disappear. The reduction took years and eventually, even the most jaded had to admit he was mostly fur.

Until the end, he wandered about the shop making sure everyone was taken care of - though he did add a considerable amount of sleep time to his schedule.

Farewell friend.
