RIP sweet Shy Anne

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
A little kitten my husband rescued about a month ago was hit and killed by a car the other day.

About a month ago, Shy was driving in the pouring rain when he saw a little lump huddled right on the yellow line. At the last second, he realized it was a tiny kitten. He swerved, stopped and went and picked her up. He dried her off and warmed her up. He then stopped at a store and bought her some food, litter and a makeshift litterbox. He was in a town that was 2 hours away from here so he couldn't bring her to me. He is a pharm rep so he had to continue his office visits while the kitten was eating/sleeping. He told one of the nurses in the office about the kitten and she referred him to a local vet that would give the kitty a checkup and adopt her to a good home. He reluctantly dropped the kitten off and was assured they would find her a good home.

He kept calling and checking on her. I think he really wanted to bring her home---but we can't care for more than 4 cats right now. He told all the nurses in all the DR's offices in the area about the kitten and one of those nurses ended up being able to adopt her. She named the kitten "Shy Anne" after Shy. The lady lived back in the woods on a huge farm and had outdoor cats and decided Shy Anne would be an outdoor cat also. One week after the nurse adopted her, Shy Anne was hit by a car and killed on the road. Shy was crying when he told me about it. He feels really guilty for not bringing the kitten to our home.

RIP baby Shy Anne. You were too sweet for this cruel world.

Kelly thats awful, especially after Shy had rescued her the first time

He did the right thing when he first found her, but that doesn't help him feel the way he does

I bet theres a little girl in heaven right now looking down on Shy

RIP Shy Anne sweetie

How terrible to be rescued once and then have this happen. Your friend did the best he could. Many people wouldn't have stopped and picked her up the first time.

RIP Sweet baby Shy Anne

Oh, that is such a shame! Each little kitty life is so precious. And to think that Shy saved her from the road, and then the road claimed her life. Rescue is so difficult! You do the best you can with the resources you have available. But for tiny Shy Anne to only have one week in her new home...that is just too short.

Condolences to all concerned. Poor little Shy Anne. And poor Shy, who tried so hard to give her a chance at a good life. Remind him there is no need for him to feel guilty. He did everything possible within his limits, to provide what seemed best. Shy Anne being hit by a car was a horrible accident. It was not his fault. And we all have limits of the number of cats who we can properly care for, and who will be happy together. I am very sorry for this loss to you and Shy, and even the lady who let the kitten outside.

I'm so sorry to hear that Kelly! I think Shy did an excellent job of finding her a good home where she was able to be outside.
