The THV11 family is mourning the loss of our beloved Joey, known to many as "Joey the Garden Cat."

We're sad to share that Joey has succumbed to illness. You may recall Joey's health issues through the years; having dealt with bone cancer, a related surgery, and other ailments. There's no doubt that Joey has always shown he's a special cat, even in dealing with so much adversity.

On Thursday, Joey fell ill and was immediately taken to Dr. Bob Hale where he was placed in the ER overnight. He was monitored closely and saw initial improvement, but unfortunately, he took a turn for the worse.

From the beginning, when Joey showed up in the THV11 Weather Garden, he stole our hearts and those of so many more.

Thank you to everyone who has loved Joey as much as we do.
