Angels at Rainbow Bridge
Our mama is a very young kitty, no more then a kitten herself. People adopted her for their young daughter. We heard they had a boy kitty there too. Our poor young mama soon had us in her belly. So, the humans got very angry and took our mama for a long drive in the country. In the country they put our mama beside the old road in a box and left. Poor mama was so scared and lonely. Some very friendly cats came along and told our mama of a nice place with food and shelter.
She decided to follow and finally found her way to Mama Jan's place. She tried and tried to get our mama to trust her. She fed mama and pet her but mama didn't trust humans any longer.
When it was time for us to arrive our mama went and hid in a old dead log away from safety and gave birth to us.
She was so frightened. She had never had babies before and didn't really know what to expect or do.
Finally we were born. Three of us to our tiny mama. She nursed us and did her best to protect us. Sadly,a big mean tom chased our mama away and attacked us. We were too young and defenseless to survive and mama couldn't help us any more.
Now... we are forever protected and always loved and in God's hands now. We know our mama will be fine cause she will soon go to the doctor person so she can get well and have no more babies.
Maybe our sad story will make humans realize the importance and responsibility of having their own pets spayed and neutered.
We'll play in the sunshine here and not worry about bad things any more. And we will pray for all the new babies born that they are safe and get good homes. Mama knows we are at peace here and she will be happy once again soon.
