I have used the services of this company four times over the past 12 or so years. The first time, I was surprised and pleased by how very kind and understanding they were. Now I know that is simply their way. The value of the comfort they provide to grieving pet owners cannot be underestimated.

To one of the best cats ever!
Cooter was always a joy to work with. He oozed intelligence and endured all medical indignities with a quiet dignity and patience. However, what he was thinking was written all over his face! Ha! He was a one in a million cat with a one in a million owner. He will be missed. It was an honor to have been his veterinarian while he was in Tennessee.
Until we meet again, Coot! Dr. Gant
For Coot-Man
I love and miss you Cooter.

To our Cooter Scott:

  Cootie was a pure-bread Maine Coon. My husband got him for me after our 13 year old Rag-doll Mix passed away. He was 7 months old when he came to live with us. He was so very smart, he was funny, loveable and the most beautiful Maine Coon ever. He was the toughest most resilient kitty I have ever known. Let me tell you why: At his first check-up we found out he had a heart murmur. But at that point it did not matter we were already in love with him after the first day. When he was about 2 years old he got a couple of tumors. One on his back and one on his head. We took him for further diagnosis to the hospital at UGA. They were not sure if he had cancer so we had them removed but decided to fore-go cancer treatment. This was fine because he had no issues after. He was happy and healthy. At age 6 he was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyapathy - or an enlarged heart. He was placed on daily heart medication and done fantastic for the next 6 years. He had become dehydrated when he got sick from this so we got desperate and began giving him water from a baby dropper - like an Amoxicilin bottle. This became a wonderful game for him. The water soon became "cool water" refrigerated especially for him. What fun we had! Cootie started looking forward to this every day. He would take the water 3 or more times a day if you would give it to him. He would jump in a chair by the table, stand up by his front paws on the table and take his water! He was so funny and it made him so happy. Everyone that came to visit wanted to see Cootie - before anyone. And wanted to see him take his water if they could! In April this year 2013 he started demonstrating signs of a problem and it was believed to be associated with his heart. After diagnosis it turned out not to be his heart but Pancreatitus. We spent a month or so trying medicines. We finally had to get a feeding tube in June. This was not typically path we would take but after talking with a specialist the goal became to get him strong again, with the hope we could treat the illness successfully. I was amazed once again as he was not the most easy going kitty at times but he was very accepting of the tube and done great! He kept trying every day. Even with this new illness, it seemed that no matter what came next we knew Cootie would keep going, he always wanted to be here, and to be with us! We were his and he was ours, a relationship no one would ever take away! I told him everyday "He was my Lovie". We kept the feeding tube in but by July he had became Anemic and that was working on him as much as anything. The Pancreatitus seemed to be under control, the heart had not changed so we were very distressed as to why this came down to Anemia. Nothing that we ever expected! The amazing part of this story is,throughout this time we were planning a move back to Atlanta. We kept asking Cootie to please hang with us. We asked God for two things: if he could not make him better, to please let him make it to his 12th birthday, which he did it was on June 24. And to let him move back to GA with us as we did not want to lose him in Tenn. We wanted him to come home with us. The lord was listening because not only did he make it to his 12th birthday - which no doctor ever expected him to do since the heart condition was diagnosed. But he also made it back home. We were so proud of him! We decided for when we got there we would take him to his former Dr. in Dawsonville, let him evaluate and decide next steps. So we took him in. The Dr. was so proud of him too, and amazed! We were given a couple more meds to try but it was not going to be likely he would recover. Cootie got to live back at home with us almost three weeks. We got more than we expected - once again. We let him go on August 2. We are so proud of him! He helped to bring all of our prayers and wishes that we had for him to come true. He was the best little boy, and the most amazing kitty I have ever known. The funny thing I take from all of this is: Cootie had many health issues throughout his entire life- so many it did not seem fair. But it still seems we needed him so much more than he needed us. He provided to us the wonderful companionship, the love, the purrs, the comfort thru changes, moves, during many tough times in our lives. And we had so much fun with him those 12 years. I truly do not know what we would have done without him. Our Lovie, our little Trooper...we miss him so much and will always miss him! We love you Cootie!!
