BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man has helped raise more than $3,000 for a local humane society through a humorous and heartfelt obituary for his cat.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports Bellows Falls artist Charlie Hunter posted the obituary for his cat Pvt. Silas Goodrich on Facebook last week, saying that his nearly 18-year-old companion has gone to “the catnip patch in the sky.”

Hunter says that Goodrich was put to sleep after his health declined due to kidney disease.

Hunter encouraged readers to donate to the Windham County Humane Society in exchange for a sticker of Silas’ face.

He says writing the obit and raising money for the humane society has helped him deal with the sadness of the loss of his beloved pet.
