Sequoia was a very special cat who had an incredible bond with his mom, Nancy Shobe. The two met 13 years ago when Sequoia was a tiny stray kitten—up north in the Sequoias—and the way the story unfolded, it was destiny for Nancy to rescue this kitty and bring him home to Santa Barbara. Sadly, Sequoia recently got cancer and Nancy had to make the tough decision to put him down. We booked an appointment for Nancy in C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic with our Pet Wellness Services Director, Carlos Abitia.

“I watched Carlos with all of the people who were waiting with their animals. With each person, he was compassionate, caring and full of information.” Nancy adds, “Sequoia was loved and well cared for during his final moments. I felt loved and well cared for. It was a moment of true compassion. I could not have been more pleased.”
