My Little Old Man

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
One of our new little ones passed away yesterday. I've always had a soft spot for the underdog.. err.. undercat. He was the smallest of both litters, even with other litter being premature and the vet said there was nothing 'wrong' with him. Always first to my foot, more interested in the love than the food, and always interested in a cuddle, he was our 'Little old man'. He was a lovely little black baby, except for the white sprinkled in his eyebrows and around his mouth, making him look like a little old man (of course). I've spent six weeks now chanting my mantra, "I will not get attached, this kittens are going to other loving homes". It never helps, does it? I had talked my honey into letting us have 'just one more' cat, so the little old man could stay with us. Apparently, it wasn't meant to be. I keep remembering him scaling me so he could hide in my hair when I would sit with them in the bathroom. I have spent the better part of a night and day mentally beating myself senseless, wondering if I missed anything. If there was anything else I could have/should have done. I guess I can just be glad that he was here to brighten our lives as long as he was. He was such a sweetheart and he will be missed though he will always be in my heart.

It sure reminds us that life is precious no matter how old they are. So sorry for your loss! I'm going to start rescuing this next year and that is something I'm not looking forward to.

Rest in peace, Little Old Man. I'm sure you'll meet up again someday.

I am sorry for you loss. At least he knew love and affection during his short life. That is all you can do sometimes.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your little old man. My thoughts are with you at this time. I have a litter of 4 kittens that are 5 weeks old and I have to find homes for them too and I don't know if I can do it, I am so attached to them already. I am also afraid of loosing one, I check on them all the time and hold my breath until I find all 4. Remember the brief time you had with him until you meet again at the bridge.

So sorry to hear you lost him, but you showed him love and a good home for the short time he had here on earth. Someday you will see him again. Hugs

Please give yourself a big hug for me...sometimes, these little guys just seem to slip away so suddenly. They just get called home, I guess, and we are left behind wondering why our time together was so very short. Little Old Man's short life was a happy one, filled with lots of pats, cuddles & love, and when you meet across the Bridge someday, you will have him to greet you! Go in peace, Little Old Man, and know that we at TCS are here for your meowmmy!
