Poor Molly

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Theres another cat website i go on here in the UK. It's no where near as big as TCS, in fact there must only be about 10 of us who are regular members!.
Brenda is one of them. She does volunteer work at her local cat shelter, and has four furbabies of her own until sadly one of them had to be put to sleep at 5.40pm last night.

She got Molly from the shelter as a young cat, and Brenda thinks Molly must have been at least 20 years old when she had to go.

Molly has suffered various ailments over the last couple of years, and has been back and forth to the vets for treatment, which until last week seemed to be working for her.

Molly stopped eating, even her favourite treat, and eventually stopping drinking. All she wanted to do was to curl up on Brendas lap, but Brenda knew by speaking to her vet that there was nothing more that could be done for Molly and the kindest thing would be to let her go.

I saw her thread in the forum 10 minutes before i was due to leave work, and when i read it a wave of sickness came over me thinking of what she must have been going through at that minute in time, i even shed a few tears once i got home.

She mailed us all today to say she knew in her heart that she had done the right thing, and i mailed her straight back and mentioned "Lilly" a lovely young fluffy cat that had been handed in to the shelter where she works a couple of weeks ago. She put her picture on the site and what a beauty she is!.

I said how i'm a great believer in fate, and was little Lilly in the shelter for a reason?!.

I know she'll take her home!.

But if everyone could please send Rainbow Bridge vibes for little Molly please, id appreciate it.

Poor Brenda, she must be feeling like complete hell at the moment.
It is v.sad about Molly but what a great, long life the little poppet had. These decisions never come easy even when we know the right one.
Please send her my thoughts at this sad time.
Maybe things are looking up for little Lilly though.
ps can you say which site it is as I haev never seen a UK one

My heart goes out to Brenda at this most sad of times.
Molly was indeed a fortunate kitty to live such a long life and to be loved so much.
I am sure she is in a happier place now at the Rainbow Bridge.
Many many of my kitties have passed on to that beautiful place. Some have passed on their own and others have had to be helped on their way. I know how hard it is to make that decision to let them go. It is a very sad but very loving decision.
I do hope and pray that little Lilly finds a happy home.
My thoughts and prayers will be with Brenda.
Love and Life, Nan

Please extend my condolences to your friend Brenda. This is so difficult, and having Molly as a friend and companion for that many years just adds to the sense of loss Brenda has right now.

When the time is right, Molly will send another friend, will point Brenda to the right kitty. But Molly will always be watching her friend Brenda from the Rainbow Bridge.
