Tigger (1 year old) Beaten and battered by someone when he was out for his nightly stroll.
Lala (4 months old) Died 10 days after Tigger on Halloween, unfortunately, she was black, some kids are just so hateful, she got hit by a car and had to be put down.
Tibby (8 weeks old) Died from internal problems from before she was born, her chest wasn't expanding for the growth, got put down.
Sheeba (2 years old) Got hit by a car one night, indoor cat wasn't too skilled, she had to be put down, internal bleeding.
These next cats were out of my control, I couldn't stop it since I had a lot of cats at one time, fostering them for a no kill group.
Cow (1 year old) Terrible ear infection, Feline Distemper (DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS, THE VET PASSED IT OFF AS JUST A "LITTLE INFECTION IN THE OUTER EAR)
Marvin (Cows Sister) FELINE DISTEMPER! We believed he died of a broken heart after losing his sister, they were never seperated, he searched for her all day and night, we woke up one morning to find him dead on her favourite armchair, broke our hearts </3
Mims (9 months old) Feline distemper! Sheeba's kitten, so sad to see, we learnt it was feline distemper after this cat died, and took immediate action to get them all in quarantine, however, it was already 3 weeks after the first cat died from it and the exposure had been done.
Sage (1 year old, rescued kitten) She was pregnant, and was due for her babies a week after she died, FELINE DISTEMPER! (the vet said it was from the babies, which is SO not true) thats my little angel!
Bill & Bob- (7weeks old) Two foster kittens, hand raised from 3 weeks old, FELINE DISTEMPER!! We tried our best my little handsomes
Mimi (9Weeks old) FELINE DISTEMPER.
Speckle (3 years old) FELINE DISTEMPER!
BTW the kittens were immediately in a different home, and got spoiled to the fullest, they were also in seperated from the other kittens, but unfortunately the disease was already there, sadly, Mimi just got her shots a week before, but her body didn't have the time for it to kick in.
AND the veterinarian was very very misleading with us, we have since changed vets. He made up every possible excuse for them dying, he came to the conclusion of the Distemper after losing the 3rd cat to a sudden, slow and painful death.
It put a huge toll on the rescue group, since they paid for a lot of the vet fees, we didnt know what was wrong, so much hurt
PS COW DIED IN DECEMBER 2007, THE LAST DEATH WE HAD WAS LAST MONTH. WE LOST EIGHT PRECIOUS CATS IN 5 MONTHS, THEY WERE ALL AT DIFFERENT STAGES OF GETTING SHOTS, ETC. WE HAVE SAVED THE OTHER 6 CATS THAT WERE PUT IN MY CARE SO YES, I HAD 14 CATS HERE. I HAVE A BIG HOME, AND HAD THE ROOM FOR IT. UNTIL SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS, YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED REAL PAIN! THESE ANIMALS CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER,
I just wish I could have helped them.
I don't think I can bare to see another kitten die in my arms,
Why does this happen to the best of us? My life revolved around animals, now I feel afraid to attach myself to them, I don't want to be broken up again.
