In Memory of Stormy ='(

In Memory of Stormy ='(

We met this starving cat near one of our neighbors houses. We could see her ribs, so we would drop by every day and feed her.

We fed her for a while, and she got better slowly, but unfortunately our efforts weren’t enough.

Her ribs started to show again, and we gave her extra food, but one day she was gone, and we haven’t seen her since.

R.I.P Stormy 🙂

Hi there… thanks for this short but memorable post.

For me it kind of sums up what is wrong with the domestic cat world.

Stormy was just one more starving neglected cat that has died. Lets think nothing of it..

After all over 2 million are deliberately killed by shelters each year. And these are mainly healthy cats.

You see, collectively we don’t really care, do we? We do nothing (hardly) to change the status quo, to improve things.

Some people do care, such as Ethan and Caleb. But it is not enough frankly. This website is not enough. It scratches the surface.

Fundamental changes are required in ownership of cats, abandoning cats, dealing with feral cats and in veterinary services that fail cats miserably (i.e. declawing which perpetuates a lot of poor behavior).

You did the best you could for her at least she knew what it was to have a nice meal after starving for goodness knows how long.

Wherever she’s gone at least the last thing she remembered was that human touch and kindness.

You stopped when no one else did you did the kindest thing but she was probably just too malnourished to survive.

You did the best you could for Stormy and I admire you very much for that.She probably had an illness and needed vets treatment but obviously her ‘owner’ didn’t care.

Michael is right,those of us who do care can only scratch the surface of all the neglect and abuse there is of cats.

The trouble is cats are looked upon by a lot of people, including vets, as second class citizens.

To those of us who care and try to help cats worldwide, they are not ‘cats’ they are each individual cat and they all deserve to be cared for as they should.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
