10-4-08 The house of death

The two baby girl kittens, and two baby boy kittens that were abandoned in my front yard died, one by one.

I called my boss Friday morning, and explained why I wouldn't be going to work. Being the animal lover he is, he understood that I had to be here to try and save the kittens.

Between Grandpa and myself, we worked around the clock, bathing especially the two little white kitten’s bottoms from the constant watery poo, and feeding them round the clock, every two hours. In one of the pictures below, you will see a white little kitten that died in my hands as I tried to feed her milk. How I wish that heartless unknown person, who threw them in my yard, had done so a few days earlier, before they got to the inhumane condition they did. Perhaps they might have had a better chance to live.

As if things weren't heartbreaking enough, I found the female cat, the one I had tried to trap for over a year, and finally succeeded in trapping and having spayed and micro-chipped, the one that had at least 4 or 5 different litters of kittens before I finally trapped her, was dead on the street, right in front of my drive way. I picked her dead little body and placed it in a box, unlike other times, where I've had to literally scrap them off the street with a shovel. Grandpa and I spent most of yesterday, digging little graves in my backyard. But it didn't stop there, because the most horrific and painful thing was yet to happen.

While Grandpa and I were burying 4 baby kittens, and a cat, one of the 5 month old kittens jumped the back fence into the backyard. Duke, the German Shepard that someone THREW in my backyard, along with Oreo, the part Pet Bull dog some months ago, grabbed and killed the little kitten, the little gray one, the one in the last two pics. I heard the kitten scream, but by the time I got to her, it was too late. Duke had torn off her entire hind leg. I took off my sandal and started beating Duke with it. I couldn't stop. When I picked her up and held her little body against my chest, she was still alive, and was looking at me, eye to eye, and then she died. How is it possible that I'm still alive? Doesn't one die from excruciating pain?!!

I dug the 6th little grave and buried the kitten. I looked everywhere, but never found the little leg. I just had to share the horrible things that happened yesterday, here in LJ.

Although, I've lost many cats in the past, I'm going to make a web page especially for the four baby kittens who never had a chance in this life, and for the gray one, because I don't ever, ever want to forget them. Grandpa and I are doing much better today. I am going to do everything posible today, to forget yesterday, and I think knawing Palin to the BONE, will help immensely!

I had to bathe and wash the poo off the two white kittens. I suppose they still had the effects of the Carnation evaporated milk I had been feeding them, (I didn't know any better) before my 2 of my LJ friends told me to buy Kitty formula instead.

This white baby kitten actually died in my hand as I tried to feed her.

This is the kitten that died in my hands.

I'm going to dedicate many pages in the domain I'm renovating with all my cats and dogs. There will be MANY of them, because I have so many 4-legged babies.

I'll also dedicate a page to Herman the turtle, Honey Bunny the rabbit, my hedgehog Porky, and my poodles, Mickey and Penny who were the love of my life and still are, who are all in critter heaven.

Thank you Sweet Pie. Those little angels aren't suffering anymore.

It has been such a difficult thing for both Grandpa and myself.

That's heartbreaking but truth be told, the world needs more people like you - those who will do good because it is the right thing to do despite the hardships.

I only hope they realized in their very short stay in this life, that they were very much loved.

Thank you Dear One.

Re: i love cats
So sad to see all four eventually die. Thank you Sweet Pie.

Aww, darling, this is just heartbreaking. You are a sweetheart beyond words for caring so much for these animals and doing your best for them. You need a great big hug right now.

I've been through so many heartbreaking moments when it comes to animals, and I know it will never stop. I sometimes wish I didn't have this great love for animals, because of the pain that comes with it. Thank you Sweet Pie.

It was really hard, especially when the tiny little bundle took its last breath in my hand, but the most horrible thing I had to deal with, was the horrible death of the gray 4 month old kitten. I still can't get over that one. Thank you Dear one for your hugs and compassion!

So sad... :(

Yes Sweety Pie.

It's a shame what some people do. I can't even imagine what you're going through. I hope you find peace with this.
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
It's been hard, but I'm starting to see things differently, and that is that they all knew they were loved, and they are now resting in peace.
Oct. 5th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
I am so very sorry....
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:09 am (UTC)
I know you are. Thank you Daddy.

I'm sorry you're having to face that situation with the kittens, but I want to THANK YOU for the gift!
not only is it far higher quality than Ive ever had, but the design itself is better. I really appreciate it.
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:10 am (UTC)
Thank you.

I'm so happy you liked it!
Oct. 5th, 2008 08:59 pm (UTC)
I'm really sorry to hear that.
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:09 am (UTC)
I know you are, and thank you Sweet Pie.

Palin jab aside, I am sorry that they died.

I'd like to remind you of their circumstances, though. They were malnourished, on the brink of death, and dumped off by somebody who couldn't be bothered. The only good thing to happen in the kittens' short lifespan was you.

I know you are Sweet Pie.

Although, I had to experienced so much pain this past weekend, I wouldn't change a thing, because those little kittens knew that the were loved so much, and both Grandpa and I were there with them to the very end.

God, this hurts so much.

que triste, como es posible que pueda haber personas tan deshumanizadas, hay accidentes y cosas que no puedes evitar con el instinto de los animales, pero el comportamiento humano? espero que todo pase. Un abrazo
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:53 am (UTC)
Ayi, que dolor! Gracias amor!
Oct. 6th, 2008 06:13 am (UTC)
that is so awful. I can't imagine the heartbreak when my cats will pass. I hope that day doesn't come for a long time. I always have this fear that they will be dead one day.. i love them so much.
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:22 am (UTC)
I've gone through so much heartbreak, and I know it will never stop, because I know I'll always have stray little cats somehow end up at my house for care and protection.

This is really very painful, and I know I'll continue my life in pain, because there will always be little animals that nobody ever wanted, end up at my house, and I will never close my doors on them.
Oct. 6th, 2008 03:40 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear this sadness, but please take comfort in knowing that their last days were spent with somebody who cared deeply and worked hard to help them. Their deaths could have been so much harder without your efforts.

Be careful of the dogs. Watch that they don't turn on you.

Your words are alway my life line. Yes, I am grateful I found those disposed little kittens, as if they were nothing but trash, in my front yard. Although, it was imposible for Grandpa and myself to save them, they did feel the love, and the desperation we felt in saving them. Wow, this totally crushes my heart against my rib cage! So painful.

Thank you Dear One.
Oct. 6th, 2008 03:45 pm (UTC)
So sorry to hear this news. I hope you realize that you've tried your best to help save them, and you did lengthen their short lives. Life can be very unfair, but people like you still manage to make it a better place!
Oct. 9th, 2008 12:47 am (UTC)
I'll always keep their little feeding bottle to remind me of the cruelty so many little animals have to suffer from people who don't give a damn.

For the first time in my life I actually felt like a mother. I thank these four little angels for that.

I know how sorry you are, and thank you so much.
