    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

    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"

    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.

    Thanks, Barry

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

    Rest in peace sweet Lily.

    Thank You

    Everyone but YOU drove by that kitten and I bet never even blinked a eye. I thought I was a pretty good person and try to look out and do my part for our fellow creatures but I can say you are truly a angel on this earth to care so much for another liveing being. I have hit a cat before and stoped there were some house's on the street so I knocked on a few of them no one claimed the cat so I wraped it up and took it home and buried it. Left some flyers up with my num asking if someone had lost there cat but no reply which really didnt make sense she was no stray you could tell. That tore me up thinking someone is certain shes just lost and will come home I know my kitty would leave for 2 or 3 days sometimes well again wish there more out there like you.

    Perhaps Lily has met Summer, a small kitten (no more than 4 or 5 months old) whom I found in front of my rural property when I returned from a visit to the mountains last summer. I wrapped her small body in a towel; I couldn't bury her, as the ground in August was very hard, and I'm not so good at digging anyway. I took her to the back of the property, where the vegetation is thick, and laid her body in a soft spot, and then, knowing there was a hurricane coming, put the top of a plastic dog house over her. I just couldn't bear the thought of her body lying out in a storm.

    Lily and Summer are happy now, and our tears are for ourselves, because *we* are sad. They are not! Lily will meet you at the Bridge, as Summer will meet me. The only consolation I can find in either of those transitions is that they were quick.

    May Lily's Creator bless you mightily for your compassion and love.
