Saying Goodbye: Memorials & Support > Not a good day for the Kitties

I was a kitty who lived at the Kindred Kitties adoption center in Kenosha, WI. I was a manx kitty who had a condition called Megacolon, which meant I needed medication to make me go poo. This basically made me unadoptable - but I was a happy kitty living where I was. This morning they found I had gone to the bridge when they came to the center to clean. I was 6 years old. As if that wasn't bad enough, another kitty that was in foster named Hunter also went to the bridge overnight. He was a big kitty, and may have has a heart attack. He was also a younger cat. Since things happen in threes sometimes, another beloved kitty had to be sent to the bridge today. He started out as a baby kitten in foster with the President of the rescue. Her best friend adopted him, and loved him more than anything. He stopped playing and wasn't himself for about a week. He went to the vet this morning, and his blood count was so low that the vet didn't know how he was still alive. His name was Taz and he was only a year and 5 mos. old. Rest in Peace sweet kitties, and we will see you someday at the bridge. rainbow

Four weeks is about the absolute YOUNGEST kittens will eat solid food. Most turn their noses up at it at first, so you need to keep trying. If you haven't done so yet, open their little mouths and put in some can food. Keep repeating this everytime you feed them. Also, sometimes they like the food but don't get the hang of eating out of the dish. I will feed them off my finger and then gradually lower my finger in the dish so they get the hint. Also, sometimes it helps to "fluff" the food back up when they smash it down while eating. It's easier for them to take bites if its kinda mounded up. Good Luck!!wave

Since I just went to the Bridge myself, tell Blackie I will find him and we can explore together. None of us wanted to leave our beloved people, and we thank our people for having the love and strength to recognize our time was done and to help us to the Bridge. May love and memories comfort you and all of Blackie's family.

Here is my memorial on Facebook:

Charlie mattered
.by Gina Grone on Thursday, January 20, 2011 at 8:22pm.

A year and a half ago, I drove a kitten named Charlie to Illinois so he could go to a rescue that would take care of him. He had tested positive for feline leukemia, and those kitties are very hard to get adopted. We had very few options for him.

Between myself, my friend Stacie and my new friend Donna Birch, we found him the perfect home with two wonderful ladies who weren't afraid to take on a cat with feline leukemia. They already had a fe-leuk cat, and he and Charlie became fast friends.

Charlie lived an extraordinarily happy life until yesterday, when he died from his condition. His adopters say their lives were better for having him with them, even for such a short time.

A lot of people thought I was a little nuts and wondered why I would go so far to save a cat... Well, I know people who have driven farther and longer to see a concert or a game or to go shopping, because it gave them pleasure and made them happy.

You know what? Saving Charlie made me happy. He mattered, and he deserved every effort that was made for him.

Love you, Charlie. You got your wings yesterday, now go play.

Thank you all for your wonderful words of sympathy and support. I am being mourned in 3 state by all the lives I touched. My original foster Mom in Nebraska is taking it very hard. Everyone is gathering up pics of me to send to my forever Moms at their request. I was very photogenic you know!! The director of the Humane Society in Nebraska who drove me all the way to Illinois posted a very special memorial on her Facebook page. I will try to see if I can share it here and on my page. Thanks again Catsters, it is always nice to know we can count on all of you for understanding!!

Thank you Lacey. To know Charlie was to know love and his parents, his rescuer in Nebraska, and I are all reeling from his loss. We all thank God he went quickly and did not suffer.

Charlie was a special kitty who was born in Beatrice, Nebraska with Felv. Staff at the Humane Society there spared his life because he was too sweet to be put down, and arranged for him to be transported to a sanctuary in Wisconsin. Once in Wisconsin, the sanctuary could not take him for several months because of sickness in their Felv room. But since Charlie was born under a lucky star with a guardian angel on his shoulder, he found a home while waiting with 2 wonderful ladies in Winthrop Harbor IL, who loved him, pampered him, spoiled him, and gave him the best care and life possible. All went downhill on 12/30/10, and despite all the testing, treatments, and loving care in the word, Charlie was send to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. I will always consider Charlie one of the greatest rescue stories I've participated in during my 5 1/2 years of rescue, and he will be sadly missed by everyone who knew and loved him. RIP Charlie and let's all pray that they find a cure soon for the dreadful disease of Felv.

Haven't purred in awhile, but we have 5 cages of foster kitties going to Petco this weekend and could use some extra luck. Our adoptions are also down for the 4th (?) year in a row, so we are looking for a strong ending to this year. Let's find them all forever homes!!

Between 8 & 25 weeks is quite a range. Hopefully the vet can tell you how old he is and how much food he should get a day. I know alot of Catsters don't believe in dry food, but all our cats and fosters are free fed dry all day and only get wet food appropriate for their age (kittens get more than cats). I say if he's hungry you need to feed him more unless he is overweight - which he doesn't appear to be. Of course the vet check is a must. Good Luck!!wave
