My cat is dead
A few days ago my dad bought some stray cats from work home, a family of four. Well about three days ago one cat left and hasn't been seen since. And today when I went to put my dog out I saw the other three in the drive near my car. I went closer to say hello when I noticed the black cat lying on top of the really little kitten. I thought she was sleeeping and tried to wake her up when I noticed her eyes were open. Then she wasnt breathing. She was sneezing a little but I didn't think she would die. I'm just really sad right now.
Think I will wrap her in a blanket and bury her in a small hole in the yard.
I'm so sorry LZ. :'( Maybe they felt loved and wanted that you were trying to care for them. So sad they were sick. *hugs*
I'm sorry to hear that. My beloved kitty of 12 years died 2 years ago and I'm still not over it. So sad. At least there are some other babies for you to shower affection on.
I am so sorry for your loss! *hugs*
I'm so sorry. :'( Hugs for you and the other kitties!
(((LZF))) I am so sorry.
((zep)) I'm sorry. I think a burial would be nice.
I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you and the family of cats are comforted in your grieving. :'(
I'm so sorry she died!! That terrible:( *big hugs*
That's awful. Poor baby. :'(
That is so sad, and I am terribly sorry for your loss. It is good, however, good that your kitty had somebody that loved her. I think the burial is a very sweet idea.
I'm sorry to hear that LZF. Give the survivor kitty extra love from the MDVs.
PS - We almost lost Tony Danza to her grief after Houdini died. Keep a close eye on the one(s) who made it.
Oh what a sad story. How touching and also sad that the black one is still "taking care" of the little one. :( Very fortunate that the little one had its littermates and such caring humans to love her for the short time it was with us.
aw, i'm so sorry, lzf.
hearing about the kitty laying on top of the dead one makes me want to cry :'(
I'm sorry, ledzep...Animal friends are so precious, and it hurts so much to let them go...seems like they're never with us long enough. Did she have any favorite blankets/toys/affects that you could let her have to keep in her permanent earth-bed?
When I buried my little Zumi last spring (after keeping her frozen until the ground thawed, since February!), I made a burial shroud-type thing out of her soft fleecy blanket, which I used to let her chew up/make bedding from. Maybe you could sew on a patch with her name and date of death?
just a thought.
our death and burial ceremonies are so strange and fantastic when you think about it.....they help us to cope and remember our lost ones better, so make it personal, whatever she would have liked.
Internet hug times two.
