This morning on my stroll, growlmy stopped to talk with a lady at one of the homes where there are plenty of feline residents and visiting renter kitties. And big red Fred, the beagle.
First she discussed all the newer kittens that were there. The lady asked if we would like to have a Kitty?! Pawlease? Well yes, but no. We already have kitties, and these while very cute and healthy looking are not oriental. The lady said that someone brought her (more like dumped off, growlmy thought), 2 momcats with 2 litters of 8 kittens! OMD! OMC!
She is known as the local kitty rescue lady, but at 89 years she doesn't have the energy to properly do this anymore. She says that soon she is going to have to take them to the local shelter, which at least is a no kill place, and since they are young, they likely will find nice new homes. We hope!
Then Growlmy asked her about Fred.
She got all weepy and said that she had had to put Fred to sleep, because at 14 he was very sick and in pain and suffering. So while she is sad about missing her friend, she is happy to know that he is no longer suffering. I will miss his baying that he would do when we walked past his place. He was just a big oaf!
So this poor lady sure has a lot to think about and worry about. She does have nice neighbours who help her out. But she sure needs to let people know that SHE is NOT the local kitty rescue joint!
I wish my growlmy could help her, but that is not in our capacity at this time, except, perhaps to keep our eyes and ears open for potential homes.
Woofs to all!
OMD, Fweckles...I r bery sowwy 'bout yur nayber, Fred. How will yu kno' where yu r on yur walk if Fwed r nod dere bayin' at yu?? Mabbe take a map, 'kay? ((((((((hugs))))))))
That's sad news about Fred the Beagle.
Hopefully those kitties can find good furever homes.
Tell the cat lady we're sorry 'bout Fred.
Run free and well, big oaf, Fred.
You'll be missed by MJR and his ma.
I meant MJF.
I have no idea who MJR is.
awww...so sorry about your friend Fred, so sad to hear about pals that go over to the bridge, hope that she is able to find homes for the kitties too!!
Awwww, Jack I'm so sorry you lost your buddy. xoxoxoxoxo
We're sorry too about your losing a good pal. We know Fred is running free over the Rainbow Bridge.
