Rainbow Bridge Angels
Barney, started my love for cats. He was rescued from a barn at 2 weeks old. He lived to 18. He was a gentle boy. Passed in Tucson.
Ziggy ... April 20, 2015 RIP With great sorrow and love I let Ziggy go to heaven tonight. They had given him a very mild anesthesia to pull fluid , but he was was not coming out of it normal. He was very weak and could barely move or focus. The vet felt he would not last the night. Tests showed jaundice, going septic, enlarged organs, blood infection, FIP?, etc.. and instead of getting better rapidly getting worse in 2 days at the vet. Still not sure what was wrong. Maybe he was generally weak or still sick from his rough barely survived beginnings before rescue.
May 5, 2015. Oliver has passed over the Rainbow Bridge, I'm so sorry to say that I found Oliver a couple hours ago , he has passed away in his sleep. He had a nice walk last night and it looks like he had gone to bed and had passed away. Poor Oliver, he was an old man. Around 14. Gentle giant. Rest in Peace sweet boy. So sad, but glad he went peacefully. He had a number of good years here, safe, comfortable ( he loved the AC in the dog house), with food, and with his buddies Bear and Bucky.
Dec. 7, 2016 - I am so sorry to say this. The vet after tests and his condition; hind leg, fast breathing, and fluid in lung, the determined Oscar was in heart failure. He had thrown a clot that's why he could not move his hind leg. I am totally in shock as I write this. I had to make the most difficult decision . I sent him home to heaven. It was a long hard decision to make after talking with vet for about a hour. I am in shock. Even if he had pulled through the emergency treatment of drugs and oxygen, as he was still feral, any ongoing treatments needed of regular drugs would have been impossible and would have caused him such stress, plus the chance of lasting more than a few months was very low. So sad. When he was a vet and sedated, I was to finally able to pet and hold the lovely. I always second guess myself but think I did the right thing by this sweet boy. Thanks to all on Facebook that sent their prayers, it really helped. More Pics and Rescue Story at
