Brought in as a tiny kitten of approximately 4 weeks of age, with spinal abnormality Beanie was my foster-“baby” for only two weeks, but he has left an indelible footprint on my heart, that will be with me forever. Beanie touch the hearts of all the Tears caregivers who encountered him, with his calm, sweet nature and determined spirit. While his spine and his muscles were strengthening and healing, his little heart never did. Beanie died of a stroke, aged six months. He is sorely missed.
