I lost one of my babies (kitten) yesterday. He came to me after being hit by a car. I nursed him back to health . When he first got here he could not walk. He was eating , drinking, playing and having a ball after he got better.

Monday he kept going to the litter box and could not pee. I took him right away to the vets. They had him for two days in intensive care. He went down hill fast and died yesterday afternoon. Turns out he had a hole in his urethra from the car accident and urine was leaking into his abdomen. The toxin from his urine poisoned his body. He was just 8 weeks old
Makes me so sad to lose a little one like this. He was an adorable orange tiger that I named Dexter . I would like to think he had love and joy in his little life while he was under my care and he left paw prints on my heart. Thanks for letting me tell you about his life. Suzanne

Thank each and every one of you for your wonderful words... They are surly loving and comforting to me. Dexter was a special little guy. So small and so adorable. I shared his life and he has touched a lot of hearts though he was not here on Earth long. I will never forget him or his happy little personality. Thank to everyone for your Love..

This makes me so sad but happy that he knew the love of a caring human before he was called away. Have no doubt he will return to you.
Hugs n blessings for the awesome work you do.

So sorry , I just walked in the door from taking my cat, Kiki, to the Vet. She had been clawed on her ear. Happened on July 5th and I had been nursing it and I noticed it looked much worse today so I took her in. Good thing I did as it was infected and she had an open laceration which was not visible until they shaved her ear area. I need to take her back in a week. Kay

Hope KIki gets better soon Kay. In this hot humid weather they get broken areas infected so quickly/Lillian

You know how hard we both prayed for our little Mighty Mite. He was loved to pieces and had a great time with his new friends. He is forever in our hearts. He is one special little guy to us both.

Thank you for giving this little sweetheart some joy in his life, Suzanne. You did all you could for him. You did make his short life happy. He knew he was loved and that is much more than many abandoned kittens do. I felt his little paw prints too. Thank you for telling us this. Jan
