    Shaybo, so sorry to read about Critter. My heart goes out to you, and your family. If you want to talk about it, cry about it, please PM me. I hope her little kitties will help to ease the pain a bit.

    Shaybo I was so sorry to read about Critter's passing....I'm sure it was a difficult decision for you and your hubbie but I know that both of you made that decision with her best interests at heart.

    Hopefully having her babies with you will help to ease your pain (once they calm down in their search for their mom).

    Sending lots of Alabama your way.......

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Shaybo,

    My heart goes out to you. I'm so sorry to hear this news, but you gave her a great home and lots of love, so know that her time with you was probably the best time of her life filled with safety, love, good food and attention.

    I know that probably doesn't make it easier. But god bless you for taking her and the kitties in when you did.

    My condolences on Critter's passing.

She gave birth to her four kittens in the garage, and fought off a racoon which killed her fourth kitten. After that she and her three kittens was moved into our house and our lives.

    Hubby fed her water with vitamin supplaments, cats milk, and the Amoxicillian that the vet perscribed to her to fight off the infection, but she didn't want it and so we made the decision(Me, hubby, and Critter.) to stop feeding her. Then on Friday evening we all went to bed in our bed room and on Saturday she took her last breath.

    Her kids are looking for her and crying out for her, and they've been sticking to us like glue. Hubby and I will miss her very much. She gave us not just her kids, but her love. Hubby has some pictures of her and once he puts them in my computer I'll share them with you.

    Thanks to all for your support.

    I'm so sorry I'm just getting to this. I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved Critter. I know how hard that decision must have been for you and dear hubby. My prayers are with you
    I can only please one person a day, today is not your day and tomorrow doesn't look good either

    Thank you guys we had the funeral for her today. It was just Hubby and myself, and we placed her next to the pattio, but before we did that I got her a little statue it's a racoon laying on it's side holding a nest. My husband wants to find a statue of the Egyptian cat god Bast to put at her grave site.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Thank you Rosie-
    The "kids" are slowly getting used to not having their mother around, and hubby and I still miss her. You don't realize how much an animal wraps around your finger until they're gone. I still miss the way she would come up to the table and try to take some of my sandwich from me. I also miss it when she would wash her kids and they would wash her. My husband and I would call it mutual grooming time.
    I better stop or I'm going to make a mess of my computer.

    oh go make a mess of your computer. You will remember Critter forever. The pain never really goes away, but it does subside. Cry, remember Critter, Laugh if you think of something cute she did, smile when you think of mutual grooming time. Most of all treasure the time you have now with the little ones. I am thinking of you, your husband, Critter and the little ones.
