Baby was born April 16, 1995(Easter Sunday) in Belle Chase, Louisiana. She went to the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, December 16, 2012. She is survived by her birth mother, Mama Cat, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, her human mother and grandmother. Baby survived Katrina. She actually was trapped for a time in her garage in Metairie, when a tree had fallen on the garage door and was jammed. A window was broken and it was believed that she had escaped and would never be seen again. Then one day a faint cry was heard. Baby was alive and still in the garage. A friend’s son who was a Kenner Policeman, climbed in through a window and rescued Baby. During Katrina renovations, Baby lived with her humans in Baton Rouge, LA. Baby returned to Metairie in 2007, where she lived a very quiet, uneventful life until her cancer diagnosis in September of 2012. She was a gentle and loving cat. She never scratched anyone and never hissed. She was a trooper throughout her chemotherapy treatments and we hoped for the best. Eventually the cancer took it’s toll on her fragile body. She was 17 years and 8 months old. She is dearly missed by her human mother and grandmother.
