I couldn't say it any better than Jugen just did. I am so sorry, I know this is difficult.

Lots of stuff going on. When Tommie bit me I was in a similar situation as I knew no one would take him either. So he became the garage cat with outdoor privledges. My other cats-well 3 out of the 4 were ok but then Tommie got shot, leg amputated, then was diagnosed FeLV and PTS. If figure he has a good 11 months with me instead if being this outside stray. Could you have a pen contructed with access to the insie of one of your outbuillding that would have a pen also so your other cats could get used to him??? That could buy you some time. Good luck on your decision. Feel better soon and good to read your dad is doing better.

Jenny, no way have you let this guy down. You've done everything you can for him, and then some. It's sad, but you have nothing to beat yourself about. Please be gentle with yourself.

Your efforts to protect a life are more than admirable. I salute you Jenny. Sending lots of healing vibes to you and your dad and hope things turn out your way.

There's only so much a person can do, and you've gone above and beyond for the little guy. It's not your fault any more than it is his. But you do have to think of yourself and your fur-family first.

I can only echo what others have already said in this thread. Thank you for doing all you have for him.

I'm really sorry you're having so much trouble with those bites Sending vibes for your father as well. As for the feral.. you did everything you could. I like the idea that someone had of building him some kind of enclosure-but if that's not an option, then you really need to know that you did all you could. Like someone else said, you didn't know that he would bite you, and if no one will take him and you can't release him - well then there is nothing in your power that you can do-therefore it's not your fault-at all. You did your best-most other ppl wouldn't have even bothered trying to help them. Remember, we can't save them all, but the important thing is that you tried your best.

Just looking in to see if you are feeling any better today,

Jenny, I'm sorry to hear about your dad and your bites not healing as well as you had hoped.

As for Merlin, you've probably already done more for him in this short time than anyone else did in years. You have a difficult decision to make and I know you'll make the best decision for the circumstances. Don't beat yourself up - you can only do so much and the rest is in God's hands.

I didn't sleep well last night because my head hurt and I was feeling bad about Merlin - I have posted a Bridge thread for him. But today it feels better and the nurse this morning said one of the abscessed sites is closing. But I have been told that before, so I will wait and see. My daughter has to go tomorrow - it has been great having her here, for practical and moral support. And thank all of you for your vibes - it has helped a lot.

Jenny....please remember that after your daughter leaves, you will not be alone because we are here for you.
More healing vibes are on the way.
