|Tiger and Callie went to the Bridge suddenly and it broke my heart.
I am an experienced foster mommy to unweaned kittens and was raising these sweeties on the side (foster for the Humane Society, but these babies were from a lady who posted on CL about 2 kittens she found under a house).
I got them at 2 weeks old, we only had Tiger for 3 weeks when I came home from a short errand to find him lifeless. I was crushed. The CL lady backed out of financial support and told me she didn't want to take the babies back when they were weaned anymore about 3 days before Tiger passed. I had fallen in love and my family and I decided to allow ourselves to love them as they would be living with us forever after I received that call.
Callie was crushed when Tiger passed and we almost lost her within 24 hours, but she pulled through and had just been approved by my Foster Coordinator to join in the weaning pen with a pair of fosters I was doing for the HS after she checked out at the vet. She loved Kissie and Suzie and they played little Mama to thier new 4 1/2 week old friend (even though they are only 3 and 2 months old themselves).
My husband came downstairs before me on the morning of August 4, 2009 and found Callie laying in the middle of the weaning pen having a seizure. He grabbed her and she was paralyzed, but seizing. My sweet husband, a tough guy by all standards, tried to keep our little girl alive long enough to get to the vet. In less than 10 minutes she was gone, though, I hadn't even been able to get both kids in the car .
They were loved so much, and they are missed even more. They were a pair of sweet kitties that knew how to tug on your heartstrings.
RIP Babies, you are missed. We will see you at the Bridge with our other furbabies that have passed before.
