Sad news , especially for Tippi , who is a very dedicated and devoted Animal Rights Activist . She founded Shambala , along with her daughter - melanie Grifffith , and cares deeply for the animals there.

Two of the residents there are Thriller and Sabu - who belonged to Michael Jackson.

Having had the pleasure of meeting all three heart aches. Especially Patrick was a favorite of mine. They are all at Rainbow Bridge and my condolences go to Tippi and everyone at Shambala. Just hope the work in what Tippi is doing continues. Love Shambala and all the residents....

My deepest condolences to you Tippi. I've seen how dedicated you are to the welfare of these amazing creatures. Losing three almost at one time is so hard to bear but because of you, Tippi, they had a longer, healthier, happier life and were allowed the time to touch the lives of more people than we'll ever know. They deserve our tears and mourning for all they gave by just being.

God Bless your souls Patrick and the other cats that passed. Rest in peace. You will be greatly missed but never forgotten. God Bless Tippi for all she is doing for these formally abused cats. It's great to see someone with wealth do something good with their money rather than selfishly spend on themselves.
