Just an update... My sweet Caroline past away last night(5/28/13), she brought love and joy into my heart and taught me how to slow down and enjoy the little things in life. Just the little bit of time( fighting back tears) I had with her, she showed me that I had so much compassion inside this 6'2" 230lb body that I never thought I had.
I have to have a little ceremony for her at my parents this morning, god knows she deserves it.

Thank you friends on ATS and I know Caroline would have thanked you for everything that was said about her being rescued.

She is in Gods hands now.

Thanks again ATSers.

She stopped eating yesterday afternoon and had uncontrollable bowel movements. She had this lethargic look about her. I kind of figured it was just a matter of time.

RIP Caroline, animals just break that barrier that you can't get from human interaction... can't wait to get a cat of my own. Naming it either Catrice or Clarice after Jodie Foster in SOTL

So sorry to hear that mate..

My little boy died a few years ago, after a long battle with feline leukaemia. Still miss the little bugger.

At least Caroline had a good few days with someone who obviously cared for her. More than she'd have gotten if you'd not taken her in.

They're funny creatures, how they get into your heart like they do.

My heart goes out to you; your Caroline taught you how to love and care more deeply in this life; she gave to you a wonderful gift.

Rest in peace Caroline.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends, so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

Oh, I'm so sorry. The picture you shared of Caroline with her belly full of warm milk was such a beautiful sight. You could really tell she felt happy and safe. You gave that to her, my friend, and made her last days beautiful.

Words can't really help, I know. So sorry.

Was this the kitten the mother abandoned? Mother cats can sense when a kitten is sickly and won't make it, hence her abandoning it. I am so very sorry for your loss. At least you gave her love and care even if for a short time and I am sure she appreciates that.

Animal shelters are always filled to capacity. Perhaps you could give another beautiful kitten an opportunity for life and love. HUGS!

That really is a shame she was a lovely animal. Perhaps Mom knew all along there was no hope. I hope you get over the loss soon but it sounds like she showed you a bit about yourself which will endear her to you even more


RIP little one.

Jetman, I respect you for giving it your best shot.

At least "Caroline" passed on to the other side, knowing someone had loved her.

I once found an abandoned newborn kitten under a dirty apartment building. He was a tiny little runt, a black cat about the size of a mouse. He was severely malnourished and very dirty.

Took him home and placed him under the faucet. Started to rinse him off with warm water, and he went completely limp. I thought he died, right there. Rapped him in some clean towels and a few minutes later he came back to life.

Named him "Micro!"

At this same time, I had a mom cat by the name of "TC" who just gave birth to a healthy litter of kittens.

I placed little Micro among the newborns. The mom didn't have a problem with it, and Micro was accepted. He started immediately feeding. The rest is history.

Pet's bring so much magic into our lives. They can teach us how to love, unconditionally.


Peace on Earth

You just reminded me of a kitten we had many years ago, when I lived on a large yard where my old man was a caretaker. We found this little kitten on one of the roofs, meowing in the 38c heat, left by her mother.

She was so distressed from heat, and being in direct sun light.. we took her to the vet, and both her eyes were completely burnt. One had to be completely removed and the other was likely never to function.

Other relatives said we should have put her down. I .. i hate my family..

But we didn't.. And over time, the one eye actually came good, to the point this little cheeky thing would stare at you with her head cocked, and leap at your legs and climb up.. haha..

had such a personality.

as I said I hate my family.. my useless uncle came over one weekend and as he was leaving, he didn't even care to check under his car. Ran her over.

geez Ive got nothing but retards in my family.. and they wonder why I've avoided them for the past 30 years.

oO

I offer my condolences. Yes, cats can be great companions, far exceeding what anyone who never owned one could understand. You have my sympathy. I'm sure Caroline was fortunate to have you and enjoyed much care and love. You gave her a good life. Again, I extend my sympathies in this time of sorrow.

Caroline responded to your care and love that is why she had time with you. I know your pain as I watched my Woosti dying of kidney failure. So fast, literally overnight I raced to her to the vet and she died in my arms. They work their way into your life and then leave and ...

Your Caroline had love and care and that sounds like a better scenario than her beginning. You gave her a chance at life and she filled you up!

I recommend Rainbow Bridge - the man who set it up has given a sanctuary to all people who are grieving the loss of a sentient friend/relative of other than human form. I feel your pain and want you to know that the spirit of Caroline is still with you.

Much Peace...

Sorry for your loss. She was such a cutie. I'm glad that you were able to give her some happiness in her short life.
