One of the kittens at the shelter I work at had a really traumatic surgery and didn’t make it. When I originally started this post, he was still alive and I was going to ask for prayers for him to make it through… However, it was his time to leave us, halfway through writing the post I rushed him to the vet. But he did not make it.
With a very heavy heart I am sad to say he is gone. I knew this very special boy for 8 amazing weeks, I nursed his eye until he was big enough to get it removed, I helped him grow big and strong, I took care of him when his mother didn’t… I won’t get into details of his untimely demise, but I will say he has touched my heart and he will never be forgotten. And I, luckily got to be with him when it was his time to fly to the angels, he was not alone, and he was very deeply loved. His untimely passing breaks my heart and I will forever be changed.
Meet Checkers my one eye’d wonder.
Rest in peace my sweet angel.
*Please, only kind words in this sensitive time, I did everything I could to save this little man… I even gave him cpr for 5 minutes. He will forever be missed, and forever be loved.

thank you. I’m having a really hard time coping with this. And I still have to tell the people who were going to adopt him that he didn’t make it.

I love cats. I have a three legged kitty. When we found out he had cancer almost 4 years ago it was heart breaking. I was so afraid we would have to put him down. Minus one leg. and a few thousand dollars later he is still going strong, but even the thought of losing him broke my heart (In fact I’m tearing up as I’m writing this).
I wish you all the strength in the world when you talk to them. Thank you so much for taking good care of animals who do not yet/no longer have a loving family. It is hard to say goodbye, but just know that he knows how much you loved him 🙂

🙁 I’m sorry, we had a kitteh named angel that went through the same sort of thing, it’s just as heartbreaking losing a little kitty that you barely had any time with as it is losing a family pet you’ve had for 20 years. Good job doing kitty CPR, you did everything you could do. Hugs.

Thank you all. I can’t seem to get myself to stop crying. And I don’t know how on earth I am supposed to walk into work tomorrow and function like nothing happened.
I just have to try and take comfort in the fact that he is in a better place and isn’t in pain anymore… and be thankful for my furbabies good health and know that I gave that baby kitten the most love I could. He’ll have a nice peaceful burial at the shelter tomorrow where he will be remembered forever.
