I'm writing to let everyone know what a wonderful kitten I was raising and was taken from me very early and unexpectedly. BooBoo had to have surgery after eating a string and needle that was attached to my sewing project. She was supposed to be fine, the doctor was confident. However, when they prepped for surgery, she had been under anesthesia for a couple minutes when her heart began to race and she stopped breathing. They could not recessitate her. They believe that it might have happened during her spay (she had not had any surgery yet), and could have been an underlying heart condition that no one could help. We did all we could.
I am writing to tell everyone what a special and sweet girl she was. She knew just when we needed to cuddle much preferred sleeping on our chests to sleeping on her own, which we loved. She loved: things moving under fabric, sleeping on our chests, destroying play mice, pouncing on our older cat, and people food. I believe she loved us and knew how much we loved her, and I don't think she felt any pain. My husband and I are destroyed, and our older cat Franny is very upset as well. I know only time will heal, but thoughts and prayers are always helpful as I believe she didn't have much of a chance at life. Thank you for reading and glimpsing how special she was to us. -Colleen

I'm so sorry for your loss. When a young one goes back home to God, it is extremely hard to deal with, I think. They're innocent and ready to take on the world - I try to remember that now they play in heaven, attacking the toes of the angels and jumping to catch any feathers floating free from an angel's wings. My Cully girl, at the bridge since December 2, 2005, has shown me several times that she waits at the bridge to welcome newcomers if they need a quick facewash or a purring friend to lean against. Maybe your little sweetheart found my girl.... We'd love to see a picture if you have any - Hugs, Barb

Oh,Colleen, I'm crying for you and your baby; how unspeakably sad that she had to make her transition at such a tender age. I'm more sorry than I can say.
One gentle correction: you said that you believe she knew how much she was loved. . .never use the past tense. She *still* know*s* how much she *is* loved - for you do still love her. From where she is, she knows that - and she loves you all the more, for you showed her what love is. She's very much alive, and she's perfectly healthy and blissfully happy; Whatever she loved here on Earth, she still loves - and the Bridge is full of all the toy mice she could every want! Try to find some consolation for yourselves in that knowledge. And remember that you *will* be reunited: just as she's part of your heart, so will she be part of your Eternity.
May the Creator of All hold you gently in the hollow of His hands, comfort you, and lead your heart to peace.
