Cinnamin the cat and Jeremy, an English Bulldog, were inseparable, according to their owner, Judith Ditfurth.
Jeremy, an English Bulldog with a soft spot for cats, has been memorialized with a recent gift from his owner to the Morris Animal Foundation’s Happy Healthy Cat Campaign

Florida resident Judith Ditfurth said her Bulldog and cat Cinnamin were inseparable. When the Bulldog died unexpectedly on Christmas Eve 2008, the cat has been “lost without him,” she said in a statement.

For the past year and a half, Jeremy was her only dog, and he wasn’t interested in canine friends. He and Cinnamin, however, were close companions. For Ditfurth, it was fitting to honor his love of cats with a gift to the Happy Healthy Cat Campaign, which is working to improve cat health.

The campaign launched in November to raise pet-owner awareness of feline health issues and increase funding for cat research and scientist training. In addition to her memorial gift for Jeremy, Ditfurth recently honored her 16 past and current cats through donations to the campaign, according to MAF.

Judy is a "remarkable" woman and I have been a close friend for over 30 years and know that she is a constant contibutor to animal charities as well as taking food to different animal shelters throughout the year - even though Jeremy has passed and she needed time, she once again has adopted two more Bulldogs (Izzy and Toonie) who will have a remarkable life of love and caring forever. Thank you Judy for being my friend and your love of animals.

All through my life Judy and her caring pets have been in my life. It has made me the animal lover I am today and I am so happy. As I am now 40 they continue to show their love and caring towards other animals and I am so proud. Love you guys!

What a special way to honor Jeremy, the Bulldog. His special friend was a cat.

That is so cute. And the Morris Animal Foundation does so much for animals. What a great story!
