Yesterday was a very sad day at KAT as we had to put Mango the KAT mascot to sleep. Mango has been sick for a long time, battling with arthritis, hypothyroidism and other age-related problems. Recently he had deteriorated very quickly and bloodwork revealed advanced kidney failure. Mango had been the first dog treated at KAT and a wonderful, much-loved dog who lived at the shelter for 8 years. He was part of the family and it was heartbreaking to see his suffering, so we all agreed that euthanasia would be most kind. Still it was a very sad day. Many of us, including myself, were close to tears. Goodbye Mango, R.I.P.
