It's with tears in my eyes this morning tht I report Miss Charlotte passed away either last night or early this morning.
She had her dentistry yesterday and was released from the vet in the late afternoon. She had been given a shot for the pain, and they told us she should be able to eat.
When we picked her up she meowed her very quiet little meows to me.
I spoke to her, and rubbed her face. She seemed a little cold and I asked my husband to turn down the air in the car.
We bought her back to the Cat House. Celia, a long term volunteer picked her up and welcomed her back. She was set down on a towel.
She seemed quiet, and contineued to gaze at me, and now I wonder, was she imploring me for help? Oh, that I could speak your language my darling, and know what you wanted me to know? Did we do wrong by you? The vet said that some of your teeth were very bad!
I am upset with myself! I don't like this vet!
Our own vet would probably have kept you for a couple days after...but this place, they discharged you after the dentistry, despite that you were an older kitty. I don't care what this rescue does...we won't use this vet again!
But it's too late for you, my gentle little Soul!

I can't stop crying. I am so sorry, Miss Charlotte. Louie whispered to me that you departed this life, not alone, but with the other felines you'd known for so long around you. But it seems so, so so unfair.

My heart is haunted. I'm sorry my love. I'm so sorry.

We are sorry for the loss of Miss Charlotte, you did what you thought was the best for her. Perhaps there was something wrong with her that was not obvious to the vet. She knew she was loved, and you cared for her.

Sending soft paw pats and hugs to you and all the volunteers who give so much to cats and all animals in need.

I am so sorry for your loss but you did not let Miss Charlotte down, you did what was right but something happened which you had no control over. She knew that you loved her very much and she loved you in return. She is now over the bridge with many of our loving kitties and out of pain, feeling like a kitten again. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Please don't feel you let Miss Charlotte down. You provided her with love and the care she needed. Many of us who have lost our furbabys have felt that guilt, that we should have/could have done more to save them, but some things are just out of our hands. Miss Charlotte knew you loved her very much. Yes, she is at Rainbow Bridge now, she is at peace and watching over you. Bless you for caring so much for those kitties in rescue, you are a very special person! hug

I work with cats all the time, and this is the most frustrating part of it: they can't tell us where they hurt. Kitties can tolerate a lot of pain without showing it, but she may have gotten some kind of endocarditis, like a heart infection, carried in the bloodstream from her teeth. If so, she left very quickly and painlessly. This happens to humans too.
You tried. It wasn't meant to be - for whatever reason. But you did not let her down, you did not neglect her. You just can't help when you don't know. That's all. Unfortunately, we don't get to know everything. I'm very sorry for your loss, it's horrible under any circumstances, without these difficulties you're putting on yourself.
Try to be gentle with yourself, and give yourself a break, like you would for any friend. Then go on and listen to her cues from the Bridge, and save another life in her name. Luv, B & Tinkkitty
