Mr. Big White Guy with Yellow Eyes

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Poor kitty...he never got a name before he died. Saturday when I arrived at the shelter, another volunteer went around turning lights on. One kitty started meowing incessantly, a stray in the quarantine room. She kept touching him & picking up his legs, but he was non responsive, simply "meow, meow, meow, meow". His gums were blue & his ears were blue. Of course, it was a large(15 lbs) solid white male with yellow eyes. You all know how I love the white ones. I had to go to the vet to get Fulvicin, so I took him ASAP. Of course, the vet was gone, so the tech looked at him. She told me that most likely he had been hit by a car & had an internal hernia(I really cannot remember). Basically, he was suffocating. He was cold, meowing, and started to gurgle as he breathed. We stood by him & petted him...waiting for him to die. We stood there for 3 mintues before he passed away. Poor kid. When I got back to the shelter to tell them the news, I was told that he didn't even have a name yet. So, he got called Me. Big White Guy with Yellow Eyes(When they die before being named, they are named by fur coloring & eye color).

I just keep on thinking about how terrible it must've been for him, being in a starge cage and being so ill. The tech kept telling me that there was no way we could have known, he really showed no symptoms. He was eating, drinking, peeing, & pooping. He slept a lot, but that's what cats do best!

I have never before seen a cat die right in front of me like that. I tried to post sooner, but I couldn't get the words out, it was the worst thing that I've ever had to see. I treasure the time I have with all my kids even more.

Please say a prayer for the poor soul that died Saturday. The things that I see & do at the shelter are so difficult, but I know that as I stared into those yellow eyes, he knew he was loved as he died. That's all I can do, but at least it's something, he didn't die alone or unloved. It took me forever to stop crying, I just sat at the vet's office with his body & bawled. I simply do not understand why people don't care about their pets. I went back to the shelter teary eyed, and they just hugged me. Not many people can do that, and I don't know if I ever can again. I didn't realize how tought that was.

Thanks for listening guys. I just feel sick to my stomach when I think about it. I want to save them all!

Bless his little heart

Mr. Big White Guy with Yellow Eyes called out for someone to help him
and you did.
He wasnt alone when he died, he was with you and your caring tech.
Giving him the love and comfort he probably has not felt for days or weeks was probably the best experience in his life.

Maybe his death was ment to be a tribute for all those strays that die alone unwanted and unnoticed.
Maybe it was to show the preciousness of life to you or others.
or maybe it was to give you or your tech the expirence that Cats can hide their injuries so very well and give you insight to help the next cat that needs attention.

Either way his life started filled with love from his mother and ended full of love with people who care and feel compasion for his suffering.

I will most certainly say a prayer for the big white cat that touched your life directly and all of ours indirectly. We all live according to gods will and I will pray that this guy spends forever happily playing over the bridge and that your soul will be comforted in your time of sadness. That the tears you shed will bring happiness and hope for others cats in need.

Thank you for being able to stand up strait after all that and go right back in to help another.
