My Poopadoops

by Melissa

It feels like yesterday when you selected me to be your mama. I wanted to see the cute kittens and you climbed into my lap and stole my heart, and we went home that same day. I wanted to call you Smokey, but you decided Kitty Witty or Mr. Kitty as you got older was more appropriate. You slept on our heads as a baby and later by our feet, on us or between us - well, you were the boss. Wherever I went you followed and I felt your love every day, even through your attitude and funny looks.

Kitty Witty was so spoiled, but I loved him so much. I tried to always protect him and we had an unspoken language. I remember when I first took him to the vet and when they said "name", I proudly declared "Kitty Witty" only to have them say to my embarrassment "errr, no your name".

This past month you showed us love like you never did before, thank you my Poopadoops. I left him outside yesterday at 4:00pm to make a quick errand. The sun was shining, he was playing hide and seek with me and I thought he'd be okay - I wasn't going to be long. As I pulled up to my home one hour later, I knew something was wrong. There were two huge dogs sitting on the side of the road and I saw a dark object in the road and knew. My poor baby was holding on for dear life and I let him down, I wasn't there to save him! The vet tried everything to save him, but my poor baby died at 6:30pm. I thought, he'll pull through and I'll never let him out the house again, no matter how much he cries and begs. Before he died he reached out to me with his little paw and touched me.  My heart is so broken - I let him down. I should never have left him out, I should've been home with him. My poor baby is gone and I don't know what to do. My Kitty Witty... I love you so much and keep expecting to see your pixie face.

Mr. Kitty
by: christine

Mr Kitty will always be with you. Keep him close to your heart. The love he gave you will always be with you. Remember the love he gave you. God Bless you. I believe we will see our pets again. They make us happy and God wants us to be happy.

Kitty Witty "My Poopadoops"
by: Melissa

Thank you all for your kind words. Some days, some hours, some minutes are better than others.

I still keep expecting to see him in his favourite places or hear the patter of his paws on our wooden floors. My daily routine is so changed now and at times I'm unsure what to do with my time.

I guess to love deeply is to also hurt deeply.

Melissa I am so very sorry for your loss of your beautiful cat. Oh what a sad story of love and loss. Such a painful way to die. I guess your beloved cat looked up to you to say I don't hold it against you for what happened to me, as he died. Our pets are so loving and forgiving. You need to forgive yourself for leaving him out. YOu had no way of knowing he would come to harm from some other predator. It it the nature of the animal to hunt and kill, and this hurts me when I watch animal programmes. I have to change the channel when I see an animal being torn to pieces for food. I am equally hurt when I see chickens running around the yard and then killed for food. I can understand your pain and I see this from a new perspective. When the hurts and grief gets less don't deny yourself another pet for your journey here on earth. Just giving of yourself to another pet you will find happiness again. WE all make decisions in life, and it can work against us. But in time we need to forgive ourselves for the decisions we made that caused harm to another individual un-intentionally. Take one day at a time to recover from your grief.

Kitty Witty
by: Nadine

Melissa, boy, I know how you must feel. The pain and regrets are terrible. That is how I felt when I lost my precious Maine Coon, Ashley, about 2 years ago. She was always wanting outside and I deeply regret letting her have her way. She did ok for about 3 years, always coming home after roaming for awhile. But May of 2013 was the last we saw of her. We never found her. I cried for weeks. I too felt terrible that I wasn't there to protect her from whatever happened to her. She was the first cat we got and I loved her so much. We have others but she will always be my number one. In time I accepted her loss and I'm sure you will too. It just takes time. I am really sorry for your loss. Nadine

Kitty Witty March 2012 - March 2015

We cremated my poopadoops today and I'm waiting to collect his ashes. Everywhere I turn, I see my poops. I Am so very, very sad. If only I'd picked him up and put him in the house before leaving.

I found the dog owners, who have a yard completely open and apparently keep their dogs tied all day. They offered to pay Kitty's vet bills but don't undertsand that we don't want their money, just wanted to look at the irresponsible owners of the animals that killed my baby and tell them what they did.
