Random Acts of Kindness
Emil Weinberg from Lexington

Last week, aged twenty, Random came to the end of his nine lives. He lived them fully, and City Cats helped to keep him going this long.

Nothing can make up for the loss of such an old friend. To be a part to his euthanasia was one of the saddest duties that I've ever performed.

It is against this backdrop that I found outstanding the care and consideration with which Dr. Leavey and the entire staff at City Cats treated both him and me in those final moments: From the well-designed and expertly executed protocol, which made the intolerable blissfully painless, smooth, and quick; to the extraordinary warmth and empathy with which they responded to the feelings I was unable to repress. For all of it, though having paid my bill, I am and will always be in their debt.
