Tragic Accident

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I can barely see the keyboard to type this but I wanted to warn others on what can be a preventable tragedy. This morning, I found my Chaz, my heart cat, dead. She must have been jumping up to or down from the window and became tangled in the cord hanging down from the blinds. She was not wearing a collar, the cord was wrapped around her neck and she was hung.
We have the safety parts to wrap up the cords but had not put them up yet. We planned on getting it done before the baby came - never did it cross my mind it could be a danger to my animals.
I only pray that it was quick and she wan't too scared.

Chaz I am so sorry. Your litte life was too short. I love you very much and hope that if anything positive can come out of this, it is that maybe someone else can prevent this from happenening.

RIP my sweet kittenhead

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear this! RIP sweet Chaz, may you have lots of fun with all the other TCS kitties over Rainbow Bridge!

I'm SO sorry that you've had to experience this, but I do thank you very much for posting this as a warning - I'm going to make sure all my window blind strings are tied up and well out of reach as soon as I get home tonight!!!

Hugs to you!!!

I am profoundly sorry for your tragic loss, and for the nature of it.

Thank you so much for taking the time, in your grief, to warn others of this danger - I will be removing this danger from my home today. You, in your loss, have saved lives.

Rest in peace Chaz, play happily at Rainbow Bridge. I blow you kisses from our side in gratitude and sorrow.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. What a terrible terrible tragedy.
Rest in peace sweet Chaz
I usually hook the cords up for my blinds and I'm not sure which is more dangerous, leaving them hanging lose or tying them up as there is still a loop that hangs down.

I'm very very sorry for your loss There is nothing more tragic than being blindsided by an accident. Please don't blame yourself because this was not your fault- it was truly an accident. When the time comes and you two are reunited Chaz will tell you this himself in his own special way.

I am extremely grateful that you took the time to let others know about this- I myself have never worried about our cords and they are excessively long and Maui plays with them allll the time. I will be taking care of this as soon as I get home.

I'm very sorry you had to experience this and please know that I am thinking of you during this sad time!

What a tragic loss! I am so sorry for your pain! My ds almost lost a friend to miniblind cords a few years ago. If anyone has blinds, please check that the cords are cut as short as possible, and do not form a loop!

Rest in peace, dear kitty. Your tragic loss will be a learning experience to many. I had never thought of a pet dying in such a way. I will recheck all the blinds in my home.
