I'm So Sad

When I went out to feed my cats yesterday morning, I noticed that one of the kittens was missing. This had never happened before so I started worrying. When I went to feed them yesterday evening, I still found that the kitten was missing. I went all over the front yard and found it sitting quietly under a bush.

Davida, the little yellow and white kitten that's Dave's - tigron_x favorite and who I named Davida instead of Davy because it was a female kitten, is the one I speak of.

I tried to pick her up and she cried terribly. Upon further inspection, I saw that she had been attacked by something. Her little paw is just about off and her little hind leg is terribly mangled. I ran into the house to grab a pillow, and when I ran back outside, she was gone. I looked everywhere for her but never found her.

I just couldn't sleep last night. I kept worrying about her. This morning I went out to feed them again, hoping to see the little yellow kitten back. She wasn't. The tears rolled down my face when I saw all 7 bowls with food, but one of them without a little kitten eating from it.

This is exactly why I hate being an animal lover. It's just too painful. I swore once upon a time, when I had just one stray cat that I grew to love, and who one day never came back, that I would never again take in stray cats. But here I did it again. Now instead of worrying about one cat, like I did in the past, I'm worrying about 7 cats.

It pains me as you can not imagine, because I keep seeing the little yellow kitten sitting under the bush, as I did last night. She looked so tiny, sad and with pain. I keep seeing this little helpless creature in my mind and my heart is breaking. I still have hope and hope that she will come back soon, so I can take her to the vet.

I know Dave - </a></b></a>tigron_x will be just as upset when he finds out what happened to Davida, his favorite little kitten. Just wanted you to all to know.

I know you are my friend. I hope tomorrow comes fast so this awful pain I'm feeling will subside.

Love, also!

Aw, honey! I know exactly what you mean.

When I used to live in Dayton, OH I fed the strays on my porch. I also was able to keep track of who was who. What I found saddest is to see the "crop" of kittens one summer, then look for them the following spring - and find out that most of them didn't make it :(

I am friending you and inviting you to do the same :)

I'm becoming more upset and heartbroken as the day goes by. I'm constantly going out front looking for her. This is why I don't like to get attached to cats because they tend to explore all over the neighborhood and there's nothing you can do about it. Unlike dogs, you have the power to keep them in the backyard.

I'm very angry with this little kitten because there was no need for her to venture out of my front yard. I always have plenty of fresh water, and I feed them in the morning and evening. I have a 10 ft. tall fense all around my place where no dog or human can enter. This little kitten was so very safe inside my property. Why in the world did she go out, where something attacked her tiny body so viciously?

I hope these days go by fast so I can forget and have this pain I feel go away.

Anybody who loves cats is a friend of mine and I've added you, too.
Thank you for being my Livejournal friend, I appreciate it!

I have 6 furbabies of my own, most of which were shelter kittens or unwanteds. I've a history of taking in cats and kittens who are unwanted, and I used to work for/foster for a no-kill shelter :)

I'm very sorry about the kitten. Maybe it will come back.

I hope so, but I have a feeling she won't be back. I wish I had of taken her in my house to put on top of a pillow when I had the chance, instead of running in the house to grab the pillow.

It took me only a few seconds. She just disappeared. She was my favorite kitten. I only hope that she's not suffering, but I know she is and this is what is killing me.

Thank you my friend and hugs!

Yeah. I only take in strays, and the cats always seem to pick one person in the family to be their favorite.
I have this cat Stormy seemed to hate everyone for the first two years or so, but then grew fond of me, and I of him, so we soon became inseparable.
But, about two weeks ago, he went outside and never came back in, and I haven't seen him since, and I have no hope.
So I know how you feel.

Re: -
I went through this once before. His name was a black cat that I called Sammy. I never saw him again and it still hurts to think about him.

Now, I've started all over again, with this gut wrenching sadness over a little kitten that I had become so attached to.

I'm so sorry about Stormy. I also know exactly how you feel. But the only solace we have is knowing that we are responsible for making these little angels as happy for as long as possible, while they were still with us. I know I'll be going through this again and again because I still have 6 cats left. There's no way to put a leash on them to keep them from danger like we can with dogs.

Re: -
Stormy is black, too.
I try not to say he was black, but soon I think that'll be unavoidable.

Thank you. Yes, it has been so sad.
Oct. 9th, 2005 01:57 am (UTC)
I am sorry to hear that. I hope she returns.
Oct. 9th, 2005 03:34 am (UTC)
Thank you! I hope the gods hear you and she returns back home.

Awwwwwwwwwwwww.....I'm sorry. *hugs* you are so bighearted that it has to be sad for you. I hope she comes back or someone else finds her and takes care of her.

I hope so, but I just don't think so. This neighborhood is "dog country" and pretty hard for cats to survive.

I'm still going outside constantly, in hopes that I see her again, but I've lost faith. If she's dead, I pray she went fast and peacefully. How I wish to God, I wouldn't care about animals, but I was cursed to love them.

i'm so sorry... i was taught when very little to never name the chicken or the pigs, or any other animals that might be gone too soon, since it always makes the whole ordeal worse..... it was never my case with cats, but i understand your pain... i'm sorry

Thank you. I have an update about my missing kitten along with a pic showing her terrible injuries.
