Welcome to the Rainbow Bridge, unkown kitties!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Between my home and work, I saw at least three kitties run over in the middle of the road today.....and I can't help but cry for them, almost as if they were my own. Yeah, I know I'm silly, but I just hate to see it....especially when the houses are so close to the road that keeping the kitties inside away from the traffic is the only way to keep them safe, not like it is here where I live, away from so much traffic. Rest in peace little ones, play at the Rainbow Bridge where you're forever safe!

That's soo sad. I hope they RIP too, I'm sure my Pikachu & Righty/Fafa will welcome them to the Bridge.

Working as a vet tech, it kills me all the "strays" brought in by people to be euthanized because of FIV,Felv, and hit by cars. I hold them extra close while it is done so they know that at least in the end someone cared.

I don't even know how you get through a day without depression, I cannot stand to see any cat dead in the street it breaks my heart, I give you credit for being able to do that job. When I see them in the street I just pray that they didn't suffer, I simply can't stand it.

You have to keep telling yourself it is for the best. On the other hand I hand I have been known to get a little short with pet owners who let their animals roam (dogs too) and thing spaying and neutering is not good enough for their pet. I have developed a "soap box" attitude especially about spaying and neutering, I euthanized two 12 week old rescue kittens this summer because they tested + for Felv (I did give them a can of A/D first because they looked they hadn't had a good meal in awhile).

How sad, poor kitties.

The world can be such a cruel and heartless place. That's why it is so very important for all of us to spread a little love and compassion and dignity when-ever and where-ever we can.

That is just so very sad, to me especially the FeLv part...I'm seriously thinking that once my healthy furkids are gone, I'm going to actively rescue FeLv+ kitties.

Oh no that is so sad. I can not stand to see things like that, I always get very upset and cry. Poor Brendan, whenever he's with me he tries to make it better by saying things to get my mind off of it bc he knows I'll be upset for quite a while. It's just too sad when things like that happen!

That is just so sad. I am sure you are not the only one by you who is saddened by this. I too have often thought about getting cats with 'problems' who otherwise would be pts. However just as I am getting down in numbers another little stray pops up and claims me so am never in a position to take in those with Felv.
take care

That is so sad. I would be heartbroken too to see any animal like that whether I knew them or not.
