In Memory of Pickles


Pickles was the beloved kitty of two wonderful feline guardians (Rommell and Stacey).  He died tragically from ingesting part of a lily, which happened to be in a bouquet of flowers that Stacey had received as a gift.  It took vets several days to diagnose what was wrong with Pickles, and in the end, it was too late. 

We at Unconditional Love met Stacey and Rommell when they wandered into our adoption fair to look at kittens.  They were wearing white memorial bracelets inscribed with Pickles’ name.  So we asked about this.  And as we heard their story, we realized that Stacey and Rommell had appeared at our adoption fair for two reasons:  first, they needed a kitty to love.  Secondly, we needed to help them in their attempts to educate the public about plants that are poisonous to animals.  

Stacey and Rommell went home that day with a new kitten named Puck.  Now, in every adoption packet we send home with new kitty parents, we include this flyer (with Pickles’ story) and the following list of plants that are poisonous to kitties. And our website will display this information , in hopes that as many lives as possible can be saved as part of Pickles’ legacy.
