I never wanted to come here and ask for pity or ever come back, heartwrench and sick to post anything right now but people here have been asking for me and thought I'd leave you a last note. I'm sorry to end this quick and short, I have no idea how angry/upset I am right now.

some of you have saw my [my lost ark (http://www.petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?t=105510)] thread from last week - six cats were missing from a broken window and four were found later. two were remained gone when I went to findlay gathering for a day last sunday.

three nights ago I came home to my half collapsed apartment - we do not know what happened yet. found five another cats went missing and one cat have been terribly punctured by a wooden (word?) then one wounded cat (who too had a hole on his side) came back today. both are in hospital now.

six fursurvivors, crayola & clothes are all I have now. those poor six cats have been living out in cages or on their harnesses. there's no way I could give them away because of this, we would be much safer if I still had my (stolen) car. I can't and refuse to leave here until I find all of my babies.

I will be back if I ever find all and a safer home for all of us. I can't stand crying but, thank you everyone for supportive PMs, words & hugs - I'm sorry I'll be unable to respond any of your PMs for a while now. :( :(

two pictures, one of floor, second of broken litterbox & glass from living room and I won't post the rest of bedroom where most of my cats hung out that night, they are too graphically pain to see - there were blood all over.

Gina, I'm so very sorry. I didn't see the first thread (how on earth did I miss it?) but it must be so terrible for you. You are very strong. Sending huge (((hugs))) for a very brave lady.

I know you've had difficulties with the RPD before, but can you contact them to see if there's any report of an incident while you were away, and the landlord, and find out what happened, and if the landlord's insurance will cover the cost of replacing any of your things that got damaged?

karen, they should. they are under investigation right now. old apartment policemen think, fighting upstairs a witnessed neighbor said but landlord said it has been vacant since the last violence.

Karen

Oh, good - glad they are investigating. Did they at least help you find a safe place to stay? Thank goodness this didn't happen in the middle of finals, as bad as this is.

Give that sweet Crayola of yours a big hug and try to think good thoughts. I pray that the lord will keep you safe.

Wish I could be there to give you another hug, but I hope these help {{{HUGS}}}.

Who could be so mean? :mad: :mad: :mad: Please know you are in my prayers every day, you and your ark. At least you had Crayola with you, safe & sound, here in Findlay, hugs to your fluffball, too. God Bless you, sweetie.

I was so shocked by your post that I could feel my stomach churning with horror. I've sometimes imagined what it would be like to come home to a burglarized home and cats missing or hurt, but my mind sheers away from it because it is unendurable. I can't bear to think what the missing cats are going through, they must be terrified and even the ones who stayed in the apartment are going to be traumatized.

What happened to your friend who was staying there while you were gone? Are you staying with friends? I hope the police can do something to help you.

I know you won't have much time or opportunity to post here, but I hope you can keep us updated because many are going to be very concerned for you and the missing.

Hold your head high, there is everyone here supporting you, and there are prayers being sent from me to you.

Prayers are also on the way for your whole ark. This is so heartwrenching, and I can't imagine how this must feel.

God is with you Gina, God Bless,

You have a safe place with us, even if it is so far away. I do mean it though, anything you need...ask.

If there is anything I can do let me know.

I just spoke to Gina (IP relay phone thing) and she asked me to update you all. Star, Zephyra and Midnight are the only ones still missing. Ocean and Miles were the ones who got punctured by wood when the apartment collapse happened. Miles is still in the ICU, and may not make it, as both lungs were punctured. Ocean, however, is ready to come home, so she'll go get him once she's back in Rochester.

"Where is she?" you ask? Yesterday a friend gave her and the kitties a ride to a friend's home in Williamsport, PA. The kitties are staying there for now, Gina's on her way back to Rochester via bus (with Crayola, of course). Even if she had a car, she is temporarily unable to drive, as she broke her right ankle when reaching up to rescue Shaddow - Gina was on the stairs, and twisted and broke her ankle, but she got Shaddow and is safe, anyway.

(An aside - sheesh - Gina's on crutches, Paul's on crutches, Crayola and I at least are walking normally! Gina said Crayola was at first unsure of the crutches, but adjusted quickly, and has been a very, very good boy.)

Sue, Gina was surprised you're home early, and I didn't get a chance to update her as to why. She doesn't know what shape the apartment will be in when she gets back, as the landlord is not good at checking or sending email.

Gina thanks everyone for their prayers.

Lizzie
06-02-2006, 04:21 PM
Thank you for the update, Karen, even though the news is hard to take. Gina must feel very relieved to have most of her ark safely at the home of a friend. I hope she can stay with another friend while she sorts things out. Poor Miles! Do they have any idea how long the cats had been injured before Gina got home? Had someone else gone in and rescued them when the collapse happened?

06-02-2006, 07:08 PM
Thanks for the update Karen, though I wish it could have been a little more positive :( Justin & I have been worrying about her and the kitties. I hope things start looking up for her :( You and your kitties will be in our thoughts, Gina!

Chilli
06-02-2006, 07:27 PM
Thank you for the update.
I meant to post earlier, but I absolutely couldn't find any words to say, I just couldn't see how such things could happen, especially to such a great person.
Its wonderful that most of the ark is back, and I will still keep the remaining three in my thoughts.
Miles will also be in my thoughts, :(
Pull through, Miles!!
(((((HUGS))))) to Gina and all of the ark.

Just got off the phone with Gina, Ocean is home from the vet's office. No sign of the three missing kitties, but it is thunder and lightning and rainy there now, so we're betting they are just holed up somewhere for the moment. Miles was heavily sedated, but is still hanging in there.

Lizzie
06-14-2006, 12:30 AM
I have been very afraid to open this thread, convinced that Miles could not make it through another disaster, so this is wonderful news. He must be as tough as Gina. How on earth is Gina going to cope with all these vet bills? Has she contacted IMOM again?

06-14-2006, 12:48 AM
"Where is she?" you ask? Yesterday a friend gave her and the kitties a ride to a friend's home in Williamsport, PA.

That is so weird, I used to live in Williamsport. Of all the small towns! I'm glad the kitties are safe and with a friend.

Gina, I have been looking and hopeing for good news. I'm glad most of the kitties are home and I hope the other 3 find there way soon. ::hugs:: You have been through so much.

:( She is not doing very well. Plus, she got bit by a poisonous spider a couple days ago, had to go to a clinic. She said she's feeling rather weak.

She also said to thank everyone for all your prayers, and she will post an update when she feels up to it.

Please keep sending her good vibes & prayers. I keep reminding her how many people on PT are concerned about her well-being and are praying for her.

That is awful! :( I hope the spider bite gets better quickly. I am glad that Miles is home now, anyway. I'm still sending good thoughts your way, and my mom is too. She met you at the picnic, too, and she was very worried when I told her what happened. I hope things turn up for you soon.
