Haro’s Ginger Snap of Pellburn: 2002 – 2012

I got a super sad email this morning from Sherry, via the Chickadee Cat Club:

This morning I thought I should share with you that our Club Secretary, Sherry Pellerin, has a difficult day ahead of her and it would be nice if we keep her in our thoughts. Her beloved cat Ginger (Haro’s Ginger Snap of Pellburn) will be passing through Rainbow Bridge today. Sherry has spent the weekend with the staff at Island View Veterinary Hospital trying to save Ginger’s life from kidney disease but to no avail. Ginger is only 10 years old and Sherry thought she had so many years left with her. For any of us who have visited Sherry’s home we all know that Ginger was the first of her beautiful Abys to greet us at the door. I have a special memory of Ginger keeping our Pizza warm when Sherry and I were working on media alerts for the Chickadee 2012 show in late May.

All of us have faced or will face this day with our wonderful companion cats so take a moment today if you can and think of Ginger and Sherry.


Ginger was Scar’s mother, and Jacoby’s grandmother. I never met her in person, but I feel like I knew her well. I am so sorry that Sherry is going through this with another of Scar’s family.

  1. Ginger was very lovely. I’m so sorry. I’ve had to say good-bye to two of my own Abys in the last six months, and I know that you never really get your heart back from them. Phoenix and Circe were very sociable characters — I’m sure they were on hand to greet Ginger.
