RIP Mami

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is one of the saddest losses I had, I tried to do the best for her and it turned out worthless.... Mami was a stray that came to our warehouse business about 7 years ago, she was at least one year old then...as that place was far from a main road and with nature around, and of course we were her food providers she decided to stay, she soon got pregnat... and she gave us 5 beautiful babies, that was my first interaction with a stray.

So we had to move our business from there for too many reasons and we could not take Mami with us because we moved to a main road and I was affraid that she got killed by a car, I also did not wanted to leave her there to her own as she could have been poisoned ... bringing her home was out of the question because I already have 3 cats and beside, she does not tolerate other cats at all.

So I put her up for adoption and she found a new family in Germany (a couple I know from the animal welfare). So she got a lift and she got there Oct 1st.

Unfortunately after one month she was diagnosed with intestine cancer, she started to get fatter and fatter, they took her to the vet and she had taken out of her belly 0.75 lt. fluids, she had a 2cm tumor and a smaller one. Vet there said is not operable. She was taking some meds but aparently she was not getting better, but worse... so they took the desicion to put her to sleep. (I would have done things diffrently, I would have fight more for her)

So I feel terrible because maybe there is a possibility that she got her cancer out for the stress of changing homes? is not that she was downgraded to a worse place, she had a real house with heating and love 24/7 and everything any cat can hope for, so is not that she had a worse place to live, so I always have this thought, because she was not young, maybe the cancer evolved faster when she moved to a new place away from us? I just wanted the best for her and at the end she did not live longer.

Sorry Mami for not letting you be here where you apparently lived happier... I really wanted what was best for you.

What a sweet girl So sorry for your loss and I really doubt the move gave her or made the cancer worse. Look how relaxed she is on that sofa!

Rest In Peace Mami

Condolences to you & to Miami's new owners who obviously wanted the best for her, and unfortunately, the best was to spare her from suffering and give her a peaceful passing. This outcome must be so devastating to you all
I hope that you can take comfort in the fact that Miami knew what belonging to a real family was- she had loving, protective homes. She was spared a terrible fate that would have happened if she had been left to the streets. Her time on earth was too short, but that time was a time of blessings and happiness for her. Bless you all for giving her a good life
