“Rhonda Cantu was born in 2000 in Weslaco, TX. After spending about half her life with the Riemersma family, she moved in with the Cantu family where she would live fat and happily until 2021, when Analissa Cantu Severn – her primary care giver and partner in crime – brought her home to San Antonio, TX.
Rhonda was the most cuddly cat you could ever ask for. If there was an empty lap, she would be sure to make her way to sit on it. If a tuna can was opened, she would joyfully run to the kitchen to lick it. If someone was in the shower, she would howl to be let in to feel the water. And God forbid if her food was left out too long, her strong meow would certainly tell you she was in need of fresh food! Even when she became old and frail, all she ever wanted was the warmth of her loved ones.
Rhonda passed away August 9th in the arms of her mom, Analissa after one last nap together. She was forever loved and purred with her mama until her last breath.
She is survived by her half pet siblings, Luna and Kuma, and her extensive family including Henry Severn, Maria and Orlando Cantu, Anyssa Cantu, and the Riemersma family.
22 years wasn’t long enough, she is missed dearly by all. We’ll see you in heaven, Rhonda Cantu Riemersma Severn.
I remember when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, Lia, I realized that was the reason Rhonda would lay on my belly at night before I would fall asleep. She made me think I could be pregnant, and then I found out I was. 🥰
What a beautiful life Rhonda lived! So full of love and happiness and I’m sure chaos! Run free in the Rainbow Bridge 🐱🌈
I never got to meet Miss Rhonda but I knew she was one lucky kitty. Analissa loved to talk about her and share pictures.
Rhonda was that cat. The cat above all. Her reign was the longest lived I’ve ever seen and she was as stubborn as she was loved. I’m sure her and my baby Dasher are giving everyone up there hell 💜
Rest In Peace sweet Rhonda. I have found memories of our family going to visit and having Rhonda sitting on all of our laps. 💗
May Rhonda enjoy furry heaven.
My condolences to all who loved such a beautiful and wonderful furry family member 💜🙏🏽
