valnt9: I really think Bruce has crossed the Bridge. I am sad, but I really feel Bruce would have been miserable living indoors, or in a strange land. Now, my gut tells me has gone to become a forever part of the land he loved. He will become one with the woods, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.


I agree with the others who have said that you did the right thing. If he had to leave, at least he went where he was happy, and not in a strange place.

tigerose: Valnt9 I am so sorry honey. You did the right thing. Leaving Bruce in his territory was very kind. Perhaps he simply faded into the wood, because he could not bear to say goodbye. Only Fare thee Well, with a flick of the tail, a glance over the shoulder, and into the forest he fades.


Dammit, you have such a way with words.....

My son and I just got back from two Humane Societies in the area. One was having a tent sale (I only got a dozen older cookbooks) and the second one was on the way home. He started playing with one of the cats under the door, they let him in to play with the 2.5 year old male cat and for a while I thought we would be getting a third cat. It took a couple of hours but the cat decided to go to sleep (in his arms) and he put the poor thing down on his bed and we left. Someday I want to have as many cats as I can give time to and love. Right now with our two elderly cats, it is just the two.

canavar: Dijon is doing AMAZINGLY well...she has been at the vet getting daily care for 10 days now and WOW....I also decided that when the vet lets her leave, she will just come home with me. She will need to stay in the carrier for a while anyway(it is a decent-sized carrier) so I figured I can just keep her upstairs in my room with the door closed. The 3 other cats won't be happy but they will live....Sherpa offered to help me learn to post pics last week....thinking I may take him up on it. Technology and I have a very rocky relationship.


Awesome news - and good to hear that she will go straight to your her new home! And please, do not hesitate to drop me an email - my login at gmail dot com, I would be more than happy to host/post pics for you until you get the hang of it - I can't be the only one here who really wants to see pics of Dijon!

I'm sooo glad it's Caturday! I spent most of yesterday evening checking the Greenlit section for the Caturday thread.
I was so upset that it wasn't posted by the time I went to bed just after midnight!

I've done that myself more than a couple of times. *sheepish smile*


Also me.... cruising down TF lane looking for the green rectangle..... facepalm time..... jumped the gun.....

quantum_jellyroll: lilyspad:
That's so funny! (I think he likes you!) :D What did you name him???

I haven't named him. It seems kind of futile.
I call him "Kitty Kitty" as in "Here Kitty kitty kitty kitty".

I haven't seen him since the tree folks were here to cut up the fallen limbs & stuff.
I think the chainsaw freaked him out.


The people freaked him the most...  Fred still freaks if 'others' are near... disappeared for a day when the painters were next door... totally cool when they left..

canavar: Hi folks!

First, I want to thank  MizMezcalita again for the month of TF. This is the first time I have been privileged enough to get here early. TY!!

Dijon is doing AMAZINGLY well...she has been at the vet getting daily care for 10 days now and WOW. I couldn't get there  Tuesday or Wednesday but i went yesterday and for the first time since the day the vet picked her up, i looked at her underside. it looks fantastic...i mean it still looks bad....but BUT it looks worlds better than it did.

I brought her some of her favorite foods and a brush. She is kind of a mess still and really needs a bath but it has to wait a while longer. She is sporting a cone-of-shame too, so she cant even groom herself. So i helped her out. It was probably the first time in her life she had ever been brushed and she loved it!

I also decided that when the vet lets her leave, she will just come home with me. She will need to stay in the carrier for a while anyway(it is a decent-sized carrier) so I figured I can just keep her upstairs in my room with the door closed. The 3 other cats won't be happy but they will live.

Happy Caturday Everybody!!!


So happy to hear the good news about Dijon!!!  And I'm glad you decided to take her instead of finding a "foster" for her....she will return the favor!!!  And do take Sherpa up on his offer......he is a very good teacher!!!! (speaking from experience!)  :D

I haz a sad.
I really think Bruce has crossed the Bridge.
When I left the house 6/3 Bruce was not acting right,
He was keeping to himself, and just lying in the grass by the tree line.
I left him with my husband to help give my husband a reason to carry on, and because
I felt Bruce would be happier in his own territory.
He was born under a shed near the house, and had come to me from the woods one day.
He just claimed the house as his, but only for food and shelter. He did not use a litter box.
The woods were his litter box, thank you. end of discussion.
When I left I did call my mobile vet to go out to check on Bruce. He did treat him symptomatically, gave him a shot of antibiotics and steroids and showed my husband how to do sub-Q fluids.
But my husband let Bruce go out the next day, and after taking his spot at the tree line for a while he just disappeared. He hasn't been seen again.
I am sad, but I really feel Bruce would have been miserable living indoors, or in a strange land.
Now, my gut tells me has gone to become a forever part of the land he loved. He will become one with the woods, ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
/sorry for the wall of words...I have to vent this pain somewhere.


It is always painful to lose a friend.. animals know when it's time to go.. Catastrophe curled up in her spot under the table, in her normal position.. I went out to get breakfast.. she was gone when I got back... didn't know it for hours....  and MissChif had her heart attack during the night.. made it back to her spot on the bed before she crossed.... still pains me to think about it, but looking at the pictures and remembering them as they were helps a lot... we are here to help, and we share your grief.....

Gideon has not moved from his tower except to eat, use the litterbox, and get on the second shelf for my son to pet and brush him.
