Ode to Katie, a very special new angel

A very special kitty crossed the bridge yesterday. She is not on Catster, but has a special story to tell.

When she was just a kitten a boy picked her up and threw her against a wall many times. A lady rescued her from the boy and took her to a special place. The vet there tried many things for Katie, but she had spinal injury's and was paralzed for life. She had brain seizures and numerous health issues. Katie lived for 12 years at this special place. She was loved by many people who took good care of her. Including my mom and her daughter. They would go feed her and take care of her. When the weather was nice my mom's daughter took her to a park so she could feel the sun on her body. Katie was a true survivor and taught people the meaning of love.

Katie is now free and will be able to walk, run and fly. She will feel the grass and be free of pain. She is an angel now and will be happy among the other angels. Please see her picture on my page and keep her in your thoughts and pawyers.

What a sad and special story of Katie. How evil of a kid to do such a mean and hateful thing to a poor kitty. May she rest in peace and know how much she was loved. Sorry for your loss my friend. Take care. Love, Tate

We are praying for you all, for Katie!!!! She is a beautiful angel flying high, a bright star...

This is so sad. Poor Katie, she had such a rough start to life. I'm so glad that for those years she had people who loved her so much despite what that horrible boy did to her. We are so very sorry for your loss but at least she is free of pain and healthy again at the bridge.

WHAT A SAD BEGINNING FOR KATIE, BUT A BLESSING THAT SHE HAD SUCH GOOD FRIENDS AS YOU AND YOUR MAMA. IT MAKES ME SO SAD TO THINK WHAT SHE MUST HAVE GONE THROUGH. WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SO MEAN? IT IS WONDERFUL THAT YOUR MAMA WROTE A TRIBUTE TO SWEET KATIE WHO IS NOW PAIN FREE AND CAN ENJOY THINGS. I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO LOSE A FURIEND, BUT SHE IS IN HEAVEN WHERE SHE CAN RUN AND PLAY WITH ALL OF THE OTHER KITTIES AND I KNOW SHE WILL ALWAYS BE IN YOUR HEART AND ALL OF YOU IN HERS. SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL KITTY. IT BREAKS OUR HEARTS THAT SHE HAD TO SUFFER. THANK GOD, SHE IS FREE NOW.
LOVE,

There are so many sad stories about sweet kitties. But when we become angels we don't have to fear any bad things ever happening to us again. We will know only love and fun. We all fly and play as we wish. Rex's Human had spoken several times to my Human about this new angel. It is so wonderful that Katie did know the real love of a Human. She will smile down with great pride and say those Humans were so very wonderful to me. We from Calico Junction send all our prayers tonight for a wonderful and joyful trip to the bridge. We are waiting to greet her. We can all run and play together. Do not have a heavy heart, Feel good for what joy you brought to Katie during the time you knew her.

Don't you worry about Katie. I was there to greet her when she arrived at the bridge, and she has lots of new pals already! We're gonna take good care of her, and boy, you should see her run and play now!

All but one of us is a former feral, and we know we could have shared Katie's fate if our luck had been different. It is a shame too few people who engage in animal cruelty are ever caught and brought to justice. Thanks so much for all your human companions did for Katie!
