About 10 days ago I picked up a yellow straggly bundle off the streets in a local town and called him Bob-Cat. I brought him to the local SPCA shelter (no-kill). He never whined or cried in the car during the ride - instead he gazed around and 'pruumpted' at me with a small little voice. His fur was matted and his tufts around his neck very dirty. His eyes were tired - but very kind.
Bob-Cat had kidney failure and crossed to the Bridge over this past weekend. There was no family to shed a tear for him,so I did so after leaving the shelter today. I had gone for a visit with him only to hear the news that he had passed.

So Bob-Cat, I hope and pray that you are running at the Bridge, playing with all the other lost angels there. You were beautiful, and I will be honored if you remember me when I pass.

You will be remembered for your help and kindness during Bob-Cat's last few days. He will be among those who come running to greet you when your time comes.

Debra - I have no doubt he will greet you at the Bridge. You brought a tear to my eye with that story. He did have a family who cared for him and shed a tear - you.

Debra, Here's someone else shedding a tear for Bob-Cat. I'm so sorry he didn't have you in his life longer. At least he was dry, well fed, and comfortable when he died, thanks to your kindness. And now, Bob-Cat has lots more friends to mourn-at the CatSite.

God bless you Debra for taking him off the streets before he passed.

Once again showing you're the patron saint of wayward kitties...(at least in your area)

Very, very, terribly sad...

But at least, as others have said, Bob-Cat met you and passed in (relative) comfort.

Thanks for all your efforts. You're remarkable.

I am so sorry to hear about Bob-cat. At least he knew your love and kindness before he passed away.
