THE STORY:

To honor and remember Doug Kern who loved all animals with a passion.  From his wife Laurie : "Doug had a wonderful, gentle way with animals and they all loved him in return. Years ago we adopted a cat with FIV. He was a lovable, fat Maine Coon cat we named Fatboy. He would sit like a person on the couch watching football with Doug. When we heard about an FIV cat at a shelter that was unadoptable I brought him home. His name was Chubbs. He was a wreck. Scarred ears and face and terrified of everything. He lived in our son’s bedroom for a few weeks (our son was away at college) and we would go in the room and sit on floor (just one of us at a time) and talk softly to him. He would stretch his white paws at us from under the bed like he really wanted to come out but was so afraid. But Doug was the first person he came to. And once he knew he was safe he was all over us. Always chin butting Doug with head. Then after a few years, he got an infection that came on fast. I took him to our vet who said there was no hope. Doug was at work but I called him and he came right away. We both kissed Chubbs goodbye and gently let him go. Both Doug and I sobbed together that day as we buried him next to Fatboy. And just last August 31 we had to say goodbye to our tiny little calico, named Cleo."
