Poor Helen is finally home

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Helen was a Calico Polydactyl that I rescued from a farm 18 years ago. The owner of this farm tried to kill her several times before I rescued her. She had been stabbed by a pitch fork twice, shot twice, leaving her without a bottom jaw, and partly blind. I learned of her situation and contacted the land owner and he was more than happy to let me to set a live trap and catch her. I brought her to my parents farm where she lived in a heated barn, and had soft food fed to her until now, 18 years later. Although it's sounds like she suffered all of her life because of her injuries, she actually lived a very great life, and was very active(she was the best mouser cat!). She brought such sweetness to everyone around her, and died peacefully in her sleep cuddled up in her cat bed. She was a great inspiration, and you couldnt have a bad day when she was near you....she will be so missed, and I was so blessed to have her in my life

What a horrible way for her to begin life! How lucky that you rescued her and let her live a happy life. I know how much impact a wonderful barn cat can have. Condolences on her loss!

Now Helen is over the bridge, and will never feel another twinge of pain. Rest in peace, Helen!
