Day of Mourning

It is with great sadness that I must state that our pet iguana, Katara, has passed away. She had not been eating for quite some time and rarely moved around. Many had already thought she had passed for weeks now. She brought joy to our family and the students in Phil's classroom that have watched her and helped take care of her. It really is a miracle that she had lived as long as she did. Katara's previous owners did not take very good care of her and she had some deformities. She almost died several times before we were even able to adopt her. With all of her special and unique features we enjoyed her and treasured her even more. It will be sad this summer not to see her outside enjoying the sun in her large cage, climbing up the sides and up the large limb put in there for her enjoyment. I'm sure also sure that the students will miss seeing her every day in Phil's classroom.

Katara you will be missed but we know that you are no longer in pain. Rest in Peace Sweet Katara.
