Response to calimary (Reply #26)

27. The day after we euthanized him, two ladies showed up with a poster.

 

They were babysitting the cat long term for someone else.
They said he had been fine just a week ago.
That's nonsense. He was coming to my house for weeks
clearly sick and starving.
They said WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD?
They live almost directly across the street from me.

This kitty would show up only every few days, so I assumed
he was eating and/or living elsewhere. After a while, I
believed he was a stray. Because each time he showed up
at my house he was thinner and sicker than before. At
the end he weighed under a pound. Little furry bones, r.i.p.

I ask, how could you not know he was sick and starving,
such that he collapsed in my house?

A day later, one of my own kitties did not come home. Now
it's been a week. I have been crying almost non stop for
two weeks, exhausting. Thanks for listening
