Rest in Peace Miss Kitty — 36 Comments

  1. Tim, what a beautiful tribute to a most remarkable kitty. She is so beautiful. I put that in the present tense because she will be in your heart forever- alive there with your memories and your deep love for her.

    You gave her an extraordinary life- one that she wouldn’t have had otherwise. A dear friend once sent me a poem when I lost one of my incredibly loving cats which reminded us that God lends us our precious cats for awhile- until He needs them back. While I am not particularly religious, I am deeply spiritual… and thse words were very comforting to me at the time.

    I will ask Mousie Tongue and my other bridge babies to look after Miss Kitty and show her around. She will be romping in the grass and playing with butterflies- waiting for you when it’s time. I must believe that we will be reunited with them again. That belief somehow relieves the pain.

    • Thanks Jo. I too am a very spiritual person. I do believe she can come and go as she pleases and will visit often. We all are one and will always be together on this earth plane and beyond. I know of the Rainbow Bridge poem but, would love to hear the one your friend sent you.

        • It has nothing to do with religion, Michael. I’m not a strong believer in God either.
          It has everything to do with desire.
          I think that, for everyone, we will get exactly what we desire from the afterlife.
          For me, it’s not so much about humans but everything about my cats.

          • once we have passed on into that realm where we can join them, then we can be. truly happy. And until then, we keep them in our hearts. It’s simple, yet so sweet, and true! There is no truer beauty than that in the eyes of a cat. unless it is in the eyes of the beholder? We are so entertwined! Yes?

        • I don’t think that I can bear to read that right now, Jo. And that is the strange thing about it. Those, like Tim and his wife, and Michael, and many more, need us to stay strong, have their back, and their shoulder, not let them know that we are almost feeling the same way they are. Because we’ve been through it, too. Now, it’s okay to lean on us if it helps lessen the hurt, any. Their little animal is thinking the very same thing, reaching out, after he/she gets over the doubt and confusion. We want them to know that we are here for them, and I believe, with all my heart, that our little one knows this, heart and soul. amen, Kita, Panda, Luna.

  2. That is so sad. Do you really think somebody killed her on purpose so close to your house?

    I would be in a terrible state if I knew something like that happened just nextdoor. Have you called the police?
    Being the USA I assume the police don’t care a damn about animal welfare.

  3. This is very sad but thank you, Tim, for writing about it. I love the way that you connected so closely with her. It’s quite a nice and interesting aspect to caring for feral cats that I had not fully comprehended, namely that you can build a very close relationship with individual cats as if they are domestic cats. I love that and well done to caring for her so beautifully.

    Another thing needs to be said. She is an absolutely gorgeous looking cat and she looks so healthy.

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss, what a sad way to lose her. It doesn’t matter if a cat lives in the house or outside each one is individual and their life is precious, you obviously love your feral colony a lot and will miss Miss Kitty being around for a long time. Bless her little soul and RIP Miss Kitty x

  5. It is so hard.It breaks our heart to lose one.I am so sorry you lost Miss Kitty.I had a Miss Kitty once.She is buried in my pet cemetery..

  6. oh dan im so sorry its so horrible, when this sort of thing happens. She was very beautiful and ferel cats are just as much loved and missed as our domestic cats. It sounds like you looked after her very well. At least she will be in rainbow heaven with my cassy that passed two months ago as well as all the other kitties from poc and i know she will be well welcomed and loved. hugs

  7. So sorry to hear of Miss Kitty every cat Feral or otherwise has their own personality and that’s what’s so hard to bear that you will never see that little personalty again yet even so I’m sure her essence will still be around.

  8. Tim, I’m heartbroken and in tears right now. I’m so sorry.
    I’ll have to respond tomorrow.
    But, you’re right, ferals are just as much in our hearts as any domesticated cat, maybe more so, because we know that most live on the edge most of their lives and are never safe no matter what we do.

    • Thanks Dee. It has been very quiet without her around. The others have recovered and moved on with their daily routines. However, I know they miss her as well.
