Arrival Story: We found Lucy Kitty at the Humane Society, they were hesitant to let her go because she wasn't well and didn't want us to bring her back. We begged them to let us adopt her and they did after we promised to take her immediately to the Dr. They received her and her sister from someone that dropped them off and said they were six weeks old. Not a chance. Our Vet said she wasn't even weened yet so he kept her overnight to give her IV fluids and the next day we took her home. I will never forget how attached she bacame to Dozer(our 75 lb. GSD) She kept crawling up onto his neck attempting to suckle him...He was like WHAT IS THIS!! They became the best of friends and Lucy slept curled up on him every night and whenever he would stay still during the day. She had a temper too...She would just attack him for no reason at all...He would just look at her like, please let go before I eat you...LOL
Lucy was a great Kitty and it broke my heart to lose her. I will always love you Kitty.....
Bio: Lucy was sick when we rescued her but after that the only time she was sick was with an eye infection...then the early Morning of June 12th 2008 I was awaken to her cries, I jumped up to find Lucy Kitty dragging her back legs into my bedroom. Horrified, I tried to pick her up and she bit me because she was in so much pain. I did everything I could to finally calm her down ....Long story short, Lucy had a bloodclot pass from her heart down her spine and it stopped where the artery splits to go down her legs allowing no bloodflow to her back legs basically paralyzing her hind end. The Dr. said the only thing that could save her would be to have heart surgery immediately or she would die. My husband and I dug deep in our hearts and decided we did not want to put her through that pain and it was not guaranteed to make her better. We were told, most of the time, it will return and in no way did we want to see her in that pain again. The Dr. said, untreated, she would die usually within 24 hrs. She was resting quiet and we decided with pain meds relieving her pain, let her pass at home with us loving her. Lucy passed approximately 24 hrs later on Friday June 13th, 2008. She now is painlessly watching down from the rainbow bridge, pestering Cheyanne like she did when they were both on earth...She is happy now, we just wish we had more time to say good bye..It was so sudden but would never want to see her suffer like that again. We love & miss you Sweet Kitty
I know you both remember sitting on the deck while Mommy loved to watch the sunset.. It was always a peaceful time for us...A time I miss so very much.
Today, on your special Day.. Rainbow Bridge Day... Mommy sat on the deck and waited for that sunset again, only this was your day.
Mom sent you each a very special balloon with your name on it..We also sent one to the RBAB Angels that once there, will burst into millions of little balloons for all the furs that came to the bridge alone... They are not alone any more... They have you so be kind to them..
The one balloon that is very different has your special messages in it...Be sure to read them Girls.
Mom misses you both and it hurts so much. But finally.... I can send you something very special to show you how much I love you
Your love is in my heart forever and we will be together when God says it's time..
Mom woke this morning to find a pawmail from Dasiy asking us to guess who was AOTW.. Well of course we had no clue... It is you sweet girl!!
What an honor (honour for our Canadian furs) to be chosen RBAB's Angel of the Week!!
Daisy gave you a beautiful new pitcure and a gorgeous set of wings sweetheart...I have to admit... It made Mom cry....
I remember when Cheyanne went to TRB... Mom was beside herself with grief and it was you sweet kitty, that was by my side every single waking minute ... You even tried to cheer up Dozer by giving him a few head wacks from time to time.
You and I had a special kind of love Kitty...You were Mom 's kitty and Dad was jealous....(I love it)
And then the morning of Friday the 13th 2008 came and you went to join Cheyanne. Our hearts were broken because we didn't have enough time with you.. You left us so suddenly... It took Mom months before she could come to your page and even look a it... Now... You are such a joy and very special to help make pages for your Kitty Furends at TRB.
Dozer misses you so so much... You and him were best buds.. I loved the way you cuddled with him every night...It was so special.
I love you sweet kitty...and miss you even more.. I know you will make us all proud and carry the RBAB banner proudly this week....as AOTW
Although you are at TRB...We still feel your presence each and every day.. I will see a movement out our big window and my 1st thought is you...How you always lay there basking in the sun...
I know Dozer misses you so much... He still goes over to your window and will stick his nose right into the very same place you used to lay and just sniff and sniff. I often wonder what he is thinking... Is he remembering the first day you came home to us and found the comfort of his fur...then decided HE was your Mommy...
He was your security in life, you followed him around as he did you...especially after Cheyanne went to TRB...
I could go on and on but just know how much we miss you and how often we think of you sweet girl..
We never knew your true meowday but knew it was within a week of Dozer's so withouth hesitation, we chose Dozer's Woofday to celebrate yours as well... You two were inseperable so it just made sense....
