Arrival Story:
Like Brooke, Chloe was also a rescued kitty. As fate would have it, my mother traveled on a road she didn't usually take as a detour to go on an errand, and saw what looked like two small kittens in a grassy area near a tremendous ditch. As it was dark,and growing late, she wasn't able to stop and look. The next day we again went that way, and sure enough there was a kitten in the same spot. Parking the car, we got out and went over to investigate. A tiny kitten, no more than 5 weeks old, came running over and allowed me to pick him up. It was clear to see that he had an upper respiratory infection, and conjunctivitis to boot. As I was holding the kitten on my knee while kneeling in the grass, he meowed and squirmed and made a break for freedom, running in the direction of the fence that led down to the ditch. On the opposite side of the fence, perched on the tree, was what could only be the mother of the kitten, a very thin female with almost the same exact markings. At first I wasn't sure what to do. Should we leave the kitten with his mother? Take the kitten? Go back home and find some sort of carrier to bribe the mother cat in? These thoughts all occured to us because we thought the mother was a feral cat. It soon became clear that she was not feral, as she leapt from the tree, meowing all the way, and squeezed under the fence to come running over to us. Though we had no carrier, I couldn't leave them there, not after seeing how thin the mother cat was, and the amount of discharge from both their eyes. As luck would have it, I was to start my job at a nearby veterinary hospital that day, and we brought the cats in to get the care that they needed for their upper respiratory infections. The mother cat, who we nicknamed "Mommy kitty", was very thin at only a little over 4 pounds. Both mother and kitten had fleas, and a stubborn U.R.I. that would take a few weeks to resolve. As we had Brookie, "Mommy Kitty" and "Lucky" were given a temporary home in the shed, which was specially insulated, and we installed a temporary heater to keep them warm. Once they were deemed healthy, mommy and kitten were allowed in the house, and they've been loved members of the family ever since! Update 6/22/10: Last January, Chloe was diagnosed with the Feline Leukemia virus. She remained healthy and active for over a year and a half, and recently took a turn for the worst; she lost two pounds in the span of six months, stopped eating, playing, and meowing, and on January 22nd, made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge.

Bio:
Chloe was a very sweet little cat who loved being with people. She was a social cat and loved to be the center of attention when people came over. It was easy to tell when Chloe was in a room, as she had a loud and demanding meow for such a small cat! Chloe loved bellyrubs and tickles, and would give gentle nibbles and licks to your fingers as a show of affection. She was inseparable from her son, who would always listen to her even though he was double her size! Brooke, on the other hand, scared her, and Chloe generally stayed as far away from Brookie as possible! As far as Sable went, the two of them had an on again, off again relationship , but usually made up in the end.

Diary of an Itty Bitty Chloe Kitty

Sable told me that I should write an updated diary now that it's been three years since I made my journey to the Bridge.

I am happy to see that my son Maus has bonded so well with Gabi and Birdie. He was sad for a long time after I left, and I watched over him constantly. Now I don't need to watch him as much, because he has not one but two cat friends to spend time with.

Got to run - need to dig up a rubberband and join Sable at the catnip fields.

Love always,
Chloe

 

One year..

One year ago today, the Bridge gained a new, little white angel.
One year ago today came the day that we had dreaded for a year and a half , when Chloe was diagnosed with FELV. Words cannot express how much I miss Chloe, each and every day. She was the sweetest little cat, always by my side, conversing with her chirruping little meow. Maus, her son, mourned her for months, and I know he still misses her.

After a year the sadness is still as raw as it was that day when I held Chloe as she made her journey to the Bridge.

Itty Bitty Chloe Kitty. Thinking of you today, and every day.

 

Chloe is an angel now.

Although I knew this was coming, that knowledge does not make it any easier - Chloe was helped across the Bridge this afternoon.

She lived nearly a year and a half after being diagnosed with FELV and , until several weeks ago, was her usual playful, vocal, social self. Over the past several weeks her appetite slowly dwindled to nothing, she dropped almost two pounds, and last night was weak and unable to walk without a struggle.

We nearly missed Chloe, that chilly afternoon, when we found her tiny son in a clump of weeds on the side of the road. Chloe announced herself by standing on "her tree", running over to us and allowing us to pick her up and bring her to the vet. She quickly became a loved member of the family, always wanting to be around where people were, sleeping beside me every night and waking me with her little meows every morning.

She joins Sable at the bridge, free of disease and of pain, watching over the son she's left behind. Maus will miss her, as will we all.

Rest in peace my little Chloe.
