Adults Only! Not for Young Kittehs!

Patty:  Really, if there are any young kittehs or kiddies about, please do not let them read this post.  I went out this morning to hang some laundry outside on this warm, breezy April day and this is what I found out back by the clothes line:

 
What a beauty, but cold as ice.  I did not check for gender and I'd never seen this kitteh before.  There was no evidence of trauma.  I was saddened beyond belief and just sobbed and sobbed over the body.  I covered the body with a cloth and picked some narcissus to place at the scene and then I called Animal Control.  They have the capacity to check for microchips and would let the kitteh's humans know of his/her passing.  I then posted the photo and notice on the Neighborhood Association's Facebook page, but so far no one knows the kitteh. I made signs and posted them around the 'hood notifying people of his/her passing and my sadness for his/her humans.   Maybe he/she didn't have any humans (there was no microchip, as it turned out; or a collar). 

I'm not telling Bhu about this.  It's better if he doesn't know.  But it is so sad that such a beautiful creature is gone.  What would you have done?  Did I do the right thing? 

xxoo Patty

Oh, the poor cat! I think you did the right thing, absolutely. I hope s/he didn't suffer, whatever happened.

Godspeed to his/her spirit.

Poor poor beautiful sweet baby with no one to care but now..she had you at the end to cover her and mourne her. That means SO much! Thank you for caring. Don't tell Bhu...I wish I hadn't seen it in a way but then, I want to add my love of innocents to this baby's honor. And yours for helping.

You did all you could. It's so sad to see a beautiful animal dead on the ground--no matter whether a cat, dog, squirrel, rabbit, etc.

That was so kind and thoughtful of you to try to find the owner of the kitty cause we'd want to know if it was ours. It's sad he / she doesn't seem to have had a home.

Sadly, probably poison. When on earth will people learn that the big outdoors is NOT a safe place for kitties.
