My baby is dead

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
It is midnight here...I have been online for a few hours, and my husband just got home from town...he went in to see the fireworks, and I opted to stay home...I wanted to get online to come here....after making several posts, and feeling pretty good about this day....my husband just got home, about 15 minutes ago...and the first words out of his mouth were..." One of your cats has been run over" I can't describe to you the instant pain I felt...and I said...."which one?" and he said " the yellow and white one"
That would be Peaches.....I ran outside to the road....and in the dark I found her....she was still warm, so it had to have just happened....I came inside holding her, and asked him if he had done it...he said no....I beleive him....so some asshole didn't even have the guts to stop and tell me he hit my cat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We don't have much traffic on this road at all, but since tonight was the 4th of July, many people were going into town to see the fireworks, and I heard about 3 cars go by on there way home from the fireworks..... hissy....I hope this doesn't change your mind about letting me have the babies.....this has NEVER happened before!!!!!!! I have never had a cat ran over!!! I cried and cried and cried...and I'm still crying.....peaches was such a survivor.....she is the one I spent so much money on at the vets a couple months ago....poor Peaches.
In the morning I will bury her. I feel so bad for her!!!!

Dear friend Debby, please accept my condolences. I'm heartbroken to learn your wonderful friend Peaches has passed away. I know you love her so! Always know she loves you, too. And remember you can never be deprived of those memories the two of you will always share.

May God bless dear Peaches and lead her to the Rainbow Bridge, where she will be waiting for you! Please take care of yourself now, in the realization that we all depart this world eventually. It was Peaches' time just now. Her beautiful soul lives eternally and is always thinking of you, as you likewise keep her in your heart.

Rest in peace, Peaches. You're an angel now!

My Dear Friend Debby; I just came to the Site and this is the second thing I read. . . . .I am so upset for you that I can hardly type. Honey, you don't deserve this; we all know how much you cared about Peaches.

I know it is too soon; but when you can, please go to the "Paws and Reflect" Forum and tell us your favorite (good)memory of Little Peaches.

You are both in my prayers.
We are ALL here for you.

I hate fireworks for this reason. It scares the animals so that they lose touch with their senses and do things they would normally not do. With all the cats you do have and all the land, it is hard to round them up and bring them inside to safety, and for me, if the ferals had been in the house last night, we wouldn't have a house left. This morning I am missing 3 ferals at food call, but I hope they are just hiding and to scared to come out right now. I am just really sorry for the hole in your heart right now, and I pray soon that the sadness will pass and you will feel better.

Debbie, it hurts so much to face the death of a loved member of the family. The pain can be unbearable, so make sure you lean on us and your loved ones to make your way through the grief. My thoughts are with you and remember that Peaches will be waiting for you at the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Debby, I'm so sorry to hear about Peaches. I know what you are going through because one of my babies died too, last week. I just couldn't bring myself to write it. My little Brutus's growth had been lagging behind his littermates, and he died the night before his vet appointment to find out why. I'd seen him at 10:30 that night and he was just a happy little kitty, and I had to laugh as he kept bouncing up and down the sidewalk and trying to follow me in the house. Then in the morning, he was gone, at only 7 weeks old. You just have to get through it by loving your other kitties that much more.

I too am sorry for the loss of your kitten. I know how much it hurts. Cyber hugs and lots of prayers.......

Fireshoes; I feel for you, also. I am sending "cyber hugs" to you and Debby. Thank You for sharing your pain with Debby. May you both heal. Thank God you both have other cats o shower with extra love at this time.

Debby and Fireshoes, I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved pets. Know that now they are up there at the bridge chasing butterflies and maybe each other waiting for the day they will meet with you, again.
post #19 of 31
Debby and Fireshoes... words can not express how sad this makes me. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I wish there was something I could say or do Just remember that they are in a very wonderful place right now and they are well taken care of. You'll see them again one day.. so you do have a very joyous reunion to look forward to. Please take care of yourselves... and keep your head up.

Thank you ALL for your kind words of support....it is so great to have my friends here who understand and care. When I told my husband how sad I was and how hurt about Peaches, he just said flippantly, Well, that's just part of life.
Well, it may be part of life...but it sucks...and some compassion would be nice....but I am thankful I have you all here, to ease my pain.
Fireshoes....I am SO sorry to hear about you losing Brutus....you are in my prayers.
Thanks Donna and Colby for the offer of talking on the phone....I am okay right now, but if I need to talk later...I will call! Thanks!!
And thanks Hissy....for calling me tonight...and cheering me up....you are the absolute best!!!! *hugs*
And Joe....your e-mail card you sent me was so thoughtful and beautiful, it made me cry again....you are so sweet....thanks guys for being so good to me.

Deb and Fire, please accept my condolances for both of your losses. As for your husband Deb, I know the feeling. The only time he gets upset if it was one of his babies but he thinks I get carried away. I think he really feels it also but won't show it. I've seen him cry a few times and especially when he had to put his Joey (the English Bulldog) to sleep because of a brain tumor. The other time was when we lost Critter (my first female aby that I granded and bred). I need to go light a candle for an easy crossing to the Bridge.

I'm so sorry to read about your loss. I do know people out there hit and run, I lost a dog out for his nightly constitution and didn't know who did it until they knocked on my door a week later because they found it would cost a small fortune to repair the headlight and fender of their car!
post #23 of 31
I'm very sorry your dear Brutus passed away. He was too young to be taken from you, but such is the mystery of life. Please know he is at peace and is happily awaiting you at the Rainbow Bridge. It's so hard to deal with such a sudden loss: One moment your kitty is filled with the joy of life, then he is gone. Surely, you provided little Brutus many hours of love and fun! You'll both eternally retain a piece of each other's heart, along with memories which can never be erased.

Good-bye, little one! We love you.

Debby, I am sorry to hear of this. I just saw where Hissy lost Fern and now I see this about Peaches. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. It's so sad that she lost her life in such a way and I send my condolances. She had a good life with you and has now gone to a better place. I am so sorry!

Oh Debby and Fireshoes!

I am so so sorry to hear that! It really breaks my heart. Debby, I can't imagine what it feels like to find your baby like that on the road. And after all you've gone through together these past few months.

I will be praying for you and for the babies!
post #27 of 31
I almost wish I hadn't logged in tonight!

I just read Hissy's post about Fern...now I see this news from Debby and Fireshoes...too much tragedy here.

I can only echo what all else have said, and if it's any consolation, we are all here for you, feeling your loss, and praying for your Angels.

My thoughts and prayers,

Thank you all for your kind words, it really helps...and Jeano...I hope you told that guy where he could shove his headlight and fender! The nerve!

I am SO sorry to hear about Fern!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just logged on, and this is the first thread I have been to, so this is the first I had heard of hissy losing Fern....when I talked to her last night she said Fern wasn't doing very well, but I didn't know till just now that she didn't make it. I will have to go visit that thread.
I love you guys! Thanks for your support!

I am so sorry to hear about your losses.
post #30 of 31
It is with great sadness that I read both of your posts.

Both Peaches and Brutus were lucky to have loving owners such as yourselves. Their loss is felt by everyone here.

My thoughts are with both of you, and candles have been lit in their honor.

Love and support in this rough time.
