The pictures of Eclipse are of him when he was an adult and a senior cat

Well here I am again writing up sad news once again. Our Eclipse has passed on. He had cancer and other complications and his quality of life went down hill quickly, as he has gone to the rainbow bridge.

Eclipse was 17 years of age when he passed, he came to MHS in 2007 at 7 years old. It was truly a tough 6-7 months with Eclipse when he came to the shelter. I will never forget the reason why the previous owners gave him up WHY ? because the two kids in the house have grown up and went to college and the husband and wife wanted to travel away. So Eclipse was 'booted out." When he came to MHS he was so hurt, so hurt - that they left him behind and walked away. He had such a hard time adjusting to his new life. Eclipse finally after 6-7 months adjusted much better and he become the " Office Chief" The Big Cheese, The Boss, and he formed a male cat coalition at the shelter with the other lifelong residents and the female felines joined the pride. Eclipse was free roaming all throughout his life with the other lifelong residents. All of us volunteers worked with Eclipse and made him at home as much as we could and - It paid off !! However- Eclipse was a very feisty cat, and he was a "real character" for sure !!

I will always miss that "Big Boss Cattitude" but yet Eclipse would play like a kitten and purr and purr on his terms. He would roll around in the cat nip and then sleep it off. He would growl at you and then thrash your foot as you were walking away from him, as to say " hey you I am the boss" where are you going !! He was a very handsome Norwegian Forest Cat with a real amazing personality !! You could not resist Eclipse no matter what !!

Eclipse was my buddy and he was so much part of Massachusetts Humane Society for so long......

Massachusetts Humane Society wants to Thank Very Much our Shelter Veterinarian - Dr. Joanne Keith for helping Eclipse medically and being there for us and most of all "ECLIPSE".

Always Miss You My Chief Boss ECLIPSE !! :(:(
