    RIP Scooter





    RIP Dear Scooter. Sadly Scooter had to be put down this morning. Scooter was the feral we caught around a year ago that had a deformed penis, and we had surgery to try and correct this. Intermittently he would have problems with infections and would have to be medicated. This surgery also made him incontinent, which didnít help matters. Scooter never tamed up well, but would let me near him so it wasnít always easy to know if he was having a problem, or to medicate him if he was. Yesterday I was home sick when I noticed he kept licking himself and seemed to be leaking more than normal. This morning I managed to get him in a carrier and took him to the vet. Scooterís condition was only getting worse, and the vet could not see a good future ahead for him. If he hadnít been as feral as he was it might have been easier to prolong his life a little longer, but our vet recommended euthanasia. We, including our vet, did all everything possible for little Scooter. RIP little one!

    Rip Scooter

    This is such sad news, Scooter will be missed. Take comfort in knowing that this sweet little feral knew love and caring because of you and is telling all the RB kitties how very lucky he was to have found you. RIP Scooter and [[[[[HUGS]]]]] for Meowmie

    I am so sorry to hear about Scooter. He knew lots of love and kindness while he was with you.... and there is no comparison to the life he would have had as a feral. He was such a sweetie, with those big eyes and the fluffy fur!

    RIP little Scooter. Play hard at the RB. You will be missed.

    RIP sweet Tabitha, my heart kitty. You are loved and missed every day. 1988 - 2010

    LES here....Scooter was a heart-babe to me, as I never got to see my Cole as a kitten, and I am sure he looked like Scooter-bug!

    How old was he?

    Thank you Lisa, for giving this dear boy a home and love, and a wonderful life.

    RIP, baby....love you!

    Thanks everyone! Sometimes you just feel kind of guilty wondering if you ever really helped them in the first place. I sure hope he wasn't in much pain before all this.

    RIP dear little Scooter. I hope you're happy at the RB.

    Thank you for taking care of this little guy; the life you gave him was infinitely better than the one he had before.

    He looked like such a little darling...........

    Don't feel guilty. It's not your fault this happened. You did the best for little Scooter and he thanks you. Scooter wouldn't want you to feel guilty. He would want you to feel happy because you freed him from pain!
    RIP scooter
    Good Luck at the Rainbow Bridge, Scooter
    Thank you so much for my siggy, kittycats_delight!
