    RIP Sweet Lily

    I rescued a beautiful cat today. A beautiful Oriental Shorthair kitten, not more than 9 months old. I gave her a name. Her name was Lily.

    Her lifeless body was laying in the middle of Route 5 in the pouring rain.

    Call me crazy, but I could not let her lay there alone in the rain. I turned my car around and scooped her up in a towel. I took her to the vet to be scanned to see if she was "chipped". She wasn't. She was in rigormortis, which means she was hit by a car sometime last night.

    Lily was a beautiful black tiger and white Oriental. She was unspayed and had flea dirt. The vet said it didn't look like she belonged to anyone. She was cremated and now is off to the Rainbow Bridge.

    This is the part of my job I don't like. NO animal should die alone.

    RIP sweet beautiful girl. You were loved, even for a brief moment. Play hard at the Bridge and watch over my RB fur crew.

    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02

    RIP little Lily. Only good times for you from now on, now that you are at Rainbow Bridge. I'll bet you'll be waiting for Donna to thank her one day.

    Donna - that's heartbreaking. I know how it upsets me too, every time I see a cat or dog along side the road. I always wonder if they were someone's pet, or just another stray or outcast.

    Thank you Donna for giving this little girl kindness and dignity. I agree - no one should die alone.

    Rest in peace sweet Lily.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
