Saying Farewell to Carolyn Cernea

On June 21, 2019 Carolyn Cernea was met by her numerous cats at the rainbow bridge.  She was greeted and ushered in as a hero. Her love of animals, especially cats, took most of her waking hours. CC took excellent care of her “PetSmart Rejects” (meaning they didn’t get adopted because they were too afraid). Carolyn was President of the Orange County Humane Society at one time. More recently she was Correspondence Secretary and a very active member of Cause 4 Paws.  She participated in fundraisers, selling raffle tickets, collecting prizes at local businesses and whatever else she could do to help cats.  We remember when she went all over downtown Fredericksburg at the Heritage Festival with a sandwich board, selling Raffle tickets. Whenever there was a Cause 4 Paws event, CC was there.

CC would always greet everyone she met with her great big smile and a formal greeting.  If she was calling you on the phone the greeting was something like this. “Is this the remarkable, beautiful Mrs. Miller, who I am speaking to?” After all she was an English Major in College and it showed throughout her life.  If she was writing a newsletter or naming a cat, CC had a special flare for words. Some of her cats were named: “Millard Fillmore”, “General Zachery Taylor”, “Silky”& “Moonbeam” and several other US Presidents. She enjoyed Poetry and wanted it published where people would read it to enrich their lives.  All of her correspondence was in longhand, using snail mail. (She really didn’t like email.)

Tiger is a 4.5 year old male cat. He is a good looking tan and brown tabby and is very affectionate. He loves sitting in a lap and rubbing his head into your hand.

While he was homeless he suffered a dislocated hip; however, the great folks at Cause 4 Paws took him for surgery. It was a complete success and he is now doing very well.

Tiger must be considered as an “Only Pet” since he is quite jealous and wants to be your only love. If you are interested please call 540 972-8038.
