CAT DEPOT SPOKESPURRSON CROSSES RAINBOW BRIDGE
MEMORIAL FUND CREATED FOR MIGHTY LOU, CAPED CRUSADER
Sarasota, Fla. – (March 11, 2015) – It is with heavy hearts that Cat Depot said goodbye to their caped crusader, Mighty Lou, “spokespurrson” for special needs cats, and best friend. His mighty spirit will remain alive in the hearts of everyone whose lives he touched. The Mighty Lou Memorial Fund has been established in his memory to carry on his mission of helping special needs cats and the Friends Like Me program at Cat Depot. And, a room at Cat Depot will be dedicated in Mighty Lou’s honor. Donations are accepted online at www.catdepot.org, or stop by Cat Depot, 2542 17th Street, Sarasota, FL 34234.
Friends Like Me is a Cat Depot Program to provide emergency medical care and treatment to Cat Depot cats and kittens who are sick, injured or have chronic illnesses, such as diabetes. Mighty Lou was a special needs cat with diabetes. With the help of his doting mom, he was able to overcome his disabilities, and he became the “spokespurrson” for Cat Depot’s Friends Like Me program. The caped crusader and his mom, Nancy Colby, traveled around southwest Florida promoting this program to help homeless cats and kittens. He was especially proud of his efforts to help cats who suffered an injury or illness. Though he himself was deaf, Mighty Lou spoke loudly to his cause, and provided inspiration, happiness and laughter to all those who met him. Mighty Lou’s mission to save the lives of Friends Like Me continues on in his memory.
Mighty Lou was an internet sensation and local celebrity with his own Facebook page and weekly blog.
