We lost Enzo

This is Enzo.

Woof Memorial Critter's Corner

She was the sweetest little thing. She got to play mommie kitty to the kittens we bottle fed. She slept with them a lot.

When I found her on Memorial Day, she had an upper respiratory infection. Two rounds of antibiotics and her lungs were clear but she never could breath right. We made the choice to love her and spoil her as long as we could...

Wednesday morning she woke me up yelling and crying and trying to catch her breath. I picked her up and held her, refusing to put her down long enough to get dressed. I walked into the vet in my pajamas. She died in our hands.

Thanks guys

She was wonderful! I loved her fur. It had a lot of brown in it. Unusual blend on her.

She was the gentlest and most even tempered little thing. I never heard her spit or hiss until she went after the vet like a wildcat

We knew she wouldn't live long when we decided to keep her and love her silly but damn, it still hurts. A lot.

So sorry to hear about your sweet kitty cat Enzo.

Sure is a real pretty kitty. I've had a few with a similar look. My favorite type of cat for certain.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss MissKitty.
She looks like she was a beautiful little girl and a wonderful companion.
You gave her a great life and wonderful love for the short period that she was here to brighten your world, and you hers.
You have my condolences on your loss. I know how your heart hurts for her.
Blessings....and prayers.

Honey, I'm sooooo sorry. She knew love while she was here. That's not so bad.

Misskitty I am sorry for your loss. Enzo cat sure had a sweet face and I'm sure she was a joy to have around. I feel for you as I have been in a very similar position more than once. She was a fortunate cat to have you care for her.

I'll never understand non-cat people. Just one look at Enzo's beautiful, sweet face and my heart hurt for you.

Thanks guys. Today is two weeks.

When I lose Missy I will be a basketcase. She is my shadow and the first one we handfed. I am her human and she reminds the other cats that when she wants. She is the most hateful creature on legs. My mom says she is just like me.

misskitty, I am so sorry to hear of Enzo, passing. You gave a kitty a wonderful home. With lots of love. And you made her time here, a happy time. I know you miss her. But you have lots of good memories. You made a difference. For this very special cat. R.I.P little Enzo.

I'm so sorry for your terrible loss.

What a beautiful kitty! Just looking at her sweet face, and knowing she has gone to the Bridge makes me very, very sad.

I have saved her picture, to add to my collection of cats and kittens.

There is a quote I can't quite remember, but this is close: A cat's eyes are windows into another universe.

Enzo has those eyes...and then some!

You have a big heart, and my admiration and deepest respect, for taking in a cat that you knew didn't have much time.

'Special needs' cats are often the most loving furry family members.

Cats leave paw prints on your heart.

And when they are gone, you are never, ever, the same, again.

Sorry for your loss, I've always considered the animals that I have had the pleasure of being associated with as "true friends".
