We have the sads.
Mom got home last night from work - running to get everyone fed and get changed and then pick up the kid to help at the shelter.
Only she looked into baby jail....
Annie had run for the Bridge. And Wild Bill was dying.
She called Grandma to tell her she wouldn't be picking up the kid, sent a text to let them know she wasn't coming to the shelter and called the vet to say she was on her way. She held Bill the entire drive and whispered to him that it was OK to leave and be with his sister. He died at the vet's office.
The very nice Dr Mr Myers walked in after everything had happened and expressed his shock and offered to look at the kittens to see if he could find a cause of death. Annie had poly cystic kidney disease - there wasn't much that could have been done for her. Nothing conclusive on Bill. Though they did test for panleuk and it was negative.
As mom types this, Doc and Sally are wrestling in the cleaned up baby jail (mom is also doing laundry). They are twice the size and twice as active......maybe it just wasn't meant to be.
But Wild Bill and Annie Oakley were loved and safe and cared for.....and they had a name. Safe journey babies....there will be many there to meet you and keep you safe.
Oh no.....we're so very sorry to hear this news. Too many of our furiends have left us this year.ReplyDelete
Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
Oh man. :( We're so sorry. Rest in peace, sweet, little babies.ReplyDelete
We're so sorry, Jeanne. We know some things aren't meant to be, we know you loved them for the short time they were with you. We wish them godspeed and happy and carefree days at the Bridge.ReplyDelete
It is very sad that they died, but at least they died knowing that they were loved. That is important.ReplyDelete
Oh no, sad tears here. Poor little kittens. WE are so sorry. It is so hard to take kittens in. We remember when we got Dora and she died after a week. I bet she had the same thing. Sending lots of purrs to Wild Bill and Annie. Hope Doc and Sally make it. Poor Jeanne, lots of hugs to you.ReplyDelete
We are so sorry to hear this sad news but they were loved and cared for by you - if it hadn't been for you they would not have known these things.ReplyDelete
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
We're so sorry to hear this sad news about your kitties. Our condolences to you...ReplyDelete
Oh no, no, no. :-( Poor babies. But yes, they were loved and cared for their short lives. Thank you. Take careReplyDelete
oh how my heart breaks.. it so sucks that we can't save them all, even given the best of circumstances..ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry.
I am so very sorry. At least they knew love for a time before they died.ReplyDelete
Oh, that made me cry to hear they are gone :-( Such precious little hearts, at least they knew your loving care while they were here.ReplyDelete
Oh noes...we are so sad to read about this. This is so heartbreaking. Run free, little babies. Your time on earth was short but was filled with so much love.ReplyDelete
That just brings tears. Precious little ones. But you gave it your total all and loved them. They had that love and care with you but it is so sad...mom making leaky eyes. xoxoxoReplyDelete
I'm so sorry. Even though you know they got love and the best care they could possibly have, I know it doesn't make it any easier to lose the babies.ReplyDelete
So very sorry!ReplyDelete
Hugs! We are so sorry. It probably never gets any easier, but you are so right, they were loved, safe, and cared for. You did good, you did all that could be done.ReplyDelete
OH I am so very much sorry to hear this news. I know that everybuddy on the other side of the bridge are welcoming them and showing them the Fields of Catnip that they will be running free in.ReplyDelete
I do want to let you know that Blogville is having our OWN Olympics and that YOU are All WELCOME and WANTED to pawticipate in Each and Every Event.. in your own special ways. Max the Quilt Cat has just let me know that he will even be HOSTING A Turbo Track EVENT... isn't THAT wonderful!!!!
Oh I'm so sorry to hear this news. The blessing is that they had your love and attention and other kitties to play with while they were here. Had you not rescued them the life would have been much sadder.ReplyDelete
Our pain is more accute since Annie and Wild Bill were part of Army. They will be missed. We know they will carry all of the virtues and honor of The White Kitten Brigade as the Rainbow Bridge's newest angels.ReplyDelete
And thank you for giving them shelter and love and names and a life where they could just enjoy being kittens.
So sorry. They lived a happy and loved filled life in the short time they were with you. Purrs.ReplyDelete
Oh, wow. We just heard. We are so sorry that Annie Oakley & Wild Bill ran off to The Bridge so soon, so young. Sending purrrrrsss to you all.ReplyDelete
oh we're so very very sorry to hear this. That has to be so very hard...ReplyDelete
We're so sorry to hear this! Thank you for LOVING them!!!ReplyDelete
For the boys,
We're sorry we missed so much lately. These two had love, if only for a short time. Purrs and pawhugs.ReplyDelete
