In Memory of Hooch

Earlier this week, we received the sad news that Hooch (formerly Mooch) recently passed away. Hooch lived at our shelter for quite some time before finding the perfect home. Our condolences go out to all who knew and loved Hooch, including his best cat buddy, Jack, who was also adopted from Feline Rescue.

It is with great sadness that I am informing you that one of your former cats Hooch (formerly Mooch) passed away from aortic thromboembolism (saddle thrombus) on Friday night. Hooch, an FIV+ cat was adopted by my friend Alicia Nolfi about 1.5 yrs ago. He met the love of his life Jack(who was also adopted from your facility) and they were inseparable (see pic). I believe he had the best 1.5yrs of his life... he was loved and transformed into an amazing and beautiful cat and he will be greatly missed.


  1. My sincere condolences to the family of Hooch. How wonderful Hooch had finally found a wonderful friend in Jack. Please give Jack extra love and hugs as he will grieve for the loss of his friend.

  2. It's wonderful that Hooch had a year and a half with his family and his lovely friend Jack. It's amazing what love can do

  3. I found this strictly by accident, while searching for the origin of the name Hooch for a character in a story I’m working on. The sadness evoked by the text and especially the photos was somewhat assuaged for me by the appearance of the name Alicia Nolfi. I knew her during our Penn State days, a jewel of a person, whose caring for the neglected and abused is as strong now as then.
