I am sad to report that all kittens have now crossed the bridge. I took Barley in this morning, they ran two x-rays. He was completely full of fluid in his chest wall, his stomach and around his heart. At 8:30 a.m. he was euthanized and is now buried next to his siblings.

People PLEASE spay and neuter your cats. If you are not a responsible and ethical breeder- spay and neuter your cats. These kittens should never have been born. They had NO chance of survival, they were congenitally deformed and all of them knew pain before they died. NO ONE animal deserves that- no one at all-

I am totally balling my eyes out right now I can barely see the screen.
SO, SO, SO sad. I do want to thank you for sharing this heart wrenching story from the beginning with us. I didn't even notice if this was an old post or not but I am just devastated by the news. I honestly just have this sick feeling. I am part of a Spay/Neuter program run locally here in NH. I do everything to get this program exposure and am happy to say, since I began to participate, I've had a dozen people contact me for information on altering their cat.

Now, what you just gave me the encourage and motivation to do, more than ever, is involve myself w/ the TNR of ferals. I live in a country setting and have yet to see a stray in 2 yrs, so I was going to post in the Feral/Rescue section on ideas of what I can do. My hubby is a contractor and I was going to beg him to build an enclosure to help w/ the cats. More of that on the other board.

I just wanted to say, and I know many have, but you really touched my heart by your story. Your compassion makes others, I'm sure, want to do what they can. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to learning a great deal from you. Again, I am sorry for your loss- as you shared your story, I'm sure many felt it a loss ppersonally- as this tragedy has a great impact on so many who care and want to make a difference.

This was written right after Bermuda was euthanized.


Farewell

Goodbye to you, oh precious one-
You are released from pain.
No longer to know what is like
to lie stranded in the rain.

To weakly call out to your mom,
and wonder where she went?
Until your voice fades from your throat
Because you are so spent.

If only someone had cared enough.
To Neuter or to Spay
Then we would not be forced to have
said goodbye to you this day-


-Mary Anne Miller-


I am so very sad and angry right now-

I have the biggest lump in my throat. I'm going straight home and hug all my kits. That's beautiful MA.

So very sorry to hear about the babies - This is such horrible news!! At least they knew love during their short life!

Hissy,

I don't know how you do it. I know so many have told you this but you truly made a difference in other's lives who want to help ferals the way you do. Everything happens for a reason and for me, I happened to come across this site, then joined and then came across this post. Because of your big heart and doing the rescue work you do, it gave me the hope to make a difference. I know this may not mean much right now but I guarantee I'm not the only one who this story made an impression. Hearing such tragedies like this makes me (and the alike) fight even more to stop these things from happening. We may not be able to ever eliminate it totally, but we can play a part and make a difference. You are definitely playing your part and again, your big heart is touching other's.. so thank you.

I know you don't know me, but someone in NH is thinking of you and wanting to give you and those kitties big hugs. Because of you, they also knew compassion and human kindness, for the short time they were alive. It's so sad, I know and nothing is going to take from it, except saving more and more cats- knowing you're doing what you can to stop this.

I'll be thinking of you. =(

Also, I think what may help you is to just spend a little time w/ your cats and give them extra hugs and kisses. It's amazing what kind of therapy one can get from their cats. I know on days I am feeling down (and even right now from this story)- I go to them to feel at peace. I thank God their fate is in my hands, and they are safe from any harm, and loved unconditionally, just as they love me unconditionally.

Hugs,
Teshia

This is just so sad. If only the parents had been desexed.
post #108 of 119
Oh my. I have gone through this entire thread with the greatest of hope that the babies would make it. I am terribly upset now, crying like a school girl!! It really does show just how important it is to spay/nueter your furkids!! Bless you MA for all you do, both for the kitties and for the people on this board!!

Mary Anne I'm so very sorry Alfafa and Barley passed too. Poor sweet kitties. Thank you so much for caring for them when they needed it most
post #110 of 119
I am so sorry to hear news of Barley - and his dear sweet little siblings! At least they had excellent care for a short while and knew they were loved in their all too short life. I realize it's not much of a consolation. It must be so heartbreaking for you MA - I see children die almost every week but it never gets any easier!! Takecare of yourself too!!
post #111 of 119
Oh my goodness, I am just now catching this thread. My heart goes out to the litter. Poor little things

This is true, but they also got to feel love before they died, too. It was a blessing that you took care of them before they left for the bridge. They died more peacefully with you than they would have in that cold, lonely field.

God bless you, Mary Anne.

I'm so sorry that the kits didn't make it, MA. You worked so hard with them, they will remember you over the bridge.

words can not say enough at this time.

I am so very sorry MaryAnne

RIP little ones

RIP little babies. Now, you can run and play at the RB, and are free from the bodies that held you back in this life. Bless you, MA, for all that you do.
Hugs and headbutts from Oliver and Emma.

Applause to you MA, for your willingness to do anything to help those little guys. So upsetting that they passed, but because of you, they went peacefully and with dignity. Good Work Girl!
post #118 of 119
Mary Anne you are true evidence that there really can be angels on earth.

I hope that you take comfort from your pain in the fact that though these little babies crossed the bridge, they knew more than pain before they died, they knew LOVE before they died. And you were the one who gave them that gift. Just as you have given it to countless helpless creatures who were blessed to know true comfort and love before they went to rest.

God bless you.

Cobber, a part of what we do is having to deal with awful, tragic outcomes such as these. These little ones knew warmth, love, a strong heartbeat and caring while they were with you. That's the most important thing.

Rest in Peace little ones.
