Farewell to furry friend Koele

Saying goodbye is never easy. We recently said goodbye to one of the Sanctuary's favorite felines Koele. He was rescued as a kitten nearly 13 years ago by sanctuary founder Kathy Carroll. About two years ago, Koele's caregiver had to leave Lanai and the cat came to join his fellow Lions at the Sanctuary. Thanks to generous sponsors, he lived out his days in the sun, enjoying the ocean breezes and frequent ear rubs from visitors.
