More than two years ago, we told you about Grandpa Mason, an elderly feral cat taken in by the TinyKittens TNR team. Mason was diagnosed with terminal kidney disease. He adjusted to living in a home, although he never became friendly with people. However, Grandpa Mason loved kittens, and has fostered countless litters, cuddling and grooming them and showing them how to be a cat.
When brought in, the original estimate for Mason's survival was around four months. Instead, Mason has done very well in TK's care for nearly three years... but miracles, sadly, do not last forever. It was announced this morning that Mason's kidneys have failed, and that his trip over the Rainbow Bridge is imminent. He will spend this evening (barring immediate complications) in the company of his beloved kittens and then cross over in the morning under veterinary care.
