    RIP Scooter. I never realized that you did not "tame-up". But I Do know that you were loved and well cared for. Your life was too short, but it was FULL. Be a healthy angel now that you are at the RB.

    Oh Lisa, I'm sorry. You guys tried so hard to help Scooter. At least he knew what it was liked to be loved and cared for.

    Rest in Peace sweet Scooter.

    Good Luck at the Rainbow Bridge, Scooter
    Thank you KittyGurl and lvpets2002. I guess I question whether when we initially opted for surgery if that really was the best decision. He wouldn't have undergone surgery, incontinence and infections. Maybe putting him down in the first place would've been best. I guess you really never know, but at least we did try.

    It's funny, no matter how many cats you have, when one is gone you feel a void.

    We were working on him but with him being incontinent he had to be secluded to the garage and cat run once healed from surgery. I couldn't continually clean-up all the pee that he was leaving behind. Because of that, our inter-actions with him got less and he didn't tame like he should have. Another reason I question myself. Hopefully he knows we tried to make his life better.

    Please do not beat yourself up!!! I think what you did for Scooter was above and beyond the call of duty!!! Scooter understood that you did all you could to help him. And he loved you for that. Perhaps he remained untamed so that you would not become too attached to him and when he left it would be easier for you, but now he knows differently. Scooter was so lucky that he had you to care for him and love him. Just think how different his life would have been if not for you....Sleep softly sweet Scooter... and (((((hugs))))) for you!!

    Now listen, Lisa, go back in time.......If yu did NOT try the surgery, do you think you would have felt better about your decision to PTS?? NO! You know darned well that you would have thought "DARN, I didn't even give him a chance. " You could not have known back then that the surgery would not turn out 100%. None of us have that ability. All we can do is what is within our hearts (and means).

    I am certain that you are glad to have Scooter memories. And rest assured..... HE KNOWS.

    Lisa - I was looking for earlier threads of Scooter - when he got up in the towel rack, and lost the fear in his eyes...I couldn't find them.

    When you feel up to it, if you could post them...then you will SEE he had happy and cute days, and you made a HUGE difference to the little fella!

    HUGS!

    Rest in Peace little Scooter. Your owner gave you an amazing life and helped you so much. And now I bet you are at the Rainbow Bridge in a perfect wonderful body and playing with all the other animal angels.

    Even a little love in his life made all the difference in the world! You cared for him and gave him something no one else did, a warm place to sleep and the love that every single kitty deserves. Don't beat yourself up, as I know he is at the RB thanking you for the good in his life.

    *hugs* and *headbumpies* from us

    We humans are lucky if we find love at all in this world. But a cat, especially a feral one, is one lucky feline to find love and warmth and shelter and good vet care. You did all you could, Lisa. Scooter knows now more than ever how good he had it. Sleep well.

    Blessings,
    Mary

    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    You said that better than I could have.

    Cats need love...they don't all need the same type of love...you gave Scooter what he needed. RIP little Scooter. I was very fond of your pictures.

    Kevin & Lisa, I'm just now seeing this and I'm so sorry to hear about Scooter's passing. You gave him a very loving and caring home but sometimes a feral cat can never be tamed. I remember how scared he was when I was there in August. Please don't beat yourself up. You did much more than most people would ever do. Now he's at peace and playing happily at Rainbow Bridge. RIP sweet Scooter.
