Farewell Gonzo

For those of you who follow our blog, you may recall that we picked up a little hitchhiker in Texas that we named Gonzo.  He is a trap and release cat that showed up at our doorstep extremely ill around September 2013.  We took him into our home, worked on restoring his health, and loved him dearly.  When we left Texas in September 2014 Gonzo joined us in our r.v. travels.  November 20th, 2014 while in Camp Verde, Arizona Gonzo's health took a turn for the worse from which there was no coming back from.  Montezuma Veterinary Services diagnosed Gonzo with advanced kidney/liver failure and helped ease his passing.  As full time RVers and this being our first encounter with the clinic staff, we can't say enough about the compassionate care they showed towards us and Gonzo. 

Here is a look at the love bug that was Gonzo!  Given the heartbreak we feel, Roy and I have said that we won't take in another stray, but looking at this video, we know we'd do it all again even knowing how it would all turn out.  You'll be in our hearts forever Gonzo!
