A Letter to Courtney

Written by John | Lawrence, MA Hospital: Bulger Veterinary Hospital

Courney - a patient of Dr. Annalisa Prahl, at BulgerTO COURTNEY:
Tou were found at my place of work at the tender age of six [6] weeks old and you chose me. we bonded immediately and I became your parent.

But soon you became COURTNEY the cat from the courthouse. Only wanting to show your love to just me you were the perfect “house-cat”. Never wanting to go outside and run ”wild’ you found the place you wanted to be and that made you content.  You were the ‘GUARDIAN’ of the house and did it proudly. Until sickness brought you to the staff of Bulger Veterinary Hospital and Dr. Annalisa Prahl.

The staff there treated you with all love and compassion especially Dr. Prahl.

Dr. Prahl became a special friend calling you ‘a feisty old girl’

Dr. Prahl and her unique bedside manner maintained your quality of life until the last few days of life. I thank you [for Courtney] for your compassion and medical care.

In closing COURTNEY I know your spirit will always roam throughout the house you call home.

I will miss you …..John
