    “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”

    May the Lord comfort Mommacat, your hand and your heart, Michael. God bless you for what you do for those cats. You’ve got a heart of gold…

  2. Michael says:

    Thank you, JoelG…I just wish I was better with humans…

  3. Paige says:

    Oh my… sad, yet beautifully stated….

    How is your hand now?

    Your kitties are blessed….as are you.

    Just the sweetest story of love and compassion I’ve ever read. Bless you MamaCat and Michael.

    “Go to hell”

    I think, perhaps, our flesh is like the butterfly’s cocoon… There comes a time when it is done and reveals what is inside…. There is no evil in this plan of God, only its destruction.
    My daughter tells of the day she had to put her dad’s cat down. The cat drug himself to the vet’s mat on the exam table and seemed to say, “It’s time; lets get it done.” His remains and the memories are resting at the base of a pine tree in her yard.
    i hope Miss Kitty, when it is time, has a special resting place, too… God keep, Michael

    Almighty God, look with pity upon the sorrow of your
    servant for whom we pray. Remember him, Lord, in your mercy;
    nourish him with patience; comfort him with a sense of your
    goodness; lift up your countenance upon him; and give him
    peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    add another amen to Dr. Drew’s prayer

  9. Michael says:

    Thank you all.
    Mommacat went into the presence of the Redeemer of All Creation at 10:19 this morning.
    She was reunited with her original owner who passed before her, and with our beloved Chester.
    She died with her head on my hand, loved.

  10. Josh says:

    Sorry, brother. Tough times.

  11. Dan from Georgia says:


    My condolences.


  12. EricL says:

    You loved her and made her last days as good as they could be, the poor gal, and she was obviously thankful for it. Well done.

    My allergies must be acting up, because I’ve got tears in my eyes for some reason…

  13. Paige says:

    Continued prayers for consolations today…and tonight as you miss her furry presence on your pillow and hand…. You loved her in life and in death… the Severe Mercy to avoid further suffering. At rest. At last. Love you friend… thank you again for being such a dear cat dad.

  14. DawnMarie says:

    So Sorry to hear of your loss.

  15. Michael says:

    Thank you all for the kind words.
    I look forward to seeing her again when we’ll both be well…

  16. Em says:

    We will all feel the loss of your Miss Kitty stories… and our applications… ?

  17. Michael says:


    Miss Kitty is still with us… and I will always have cats until I’m gone too.

  19. Paige says:

    How are you today? How is your hand doing? Healing I hope…and your heart?
    One missing kitty in the compound… perhaps the other kits are looking for her?
    Took my crew a couple of weeks to quit looking for Stewie when he left us.

  20. Michael says:


    I’m ok…these things seem to hit me harder as I get older.
    I’m still fighting off the infection in my hand…they may end up having to do another procedure on it.

    Mommacat came here with another cat when their owner died… Gremlin.
    Grem is searching the house and grounds for her old friend…heartbreaking…
    All will be well someday.
    I believe that.

  21. Em says:

    “All will be well someday.
    I believe that”

    me too, Michael … me too… like the old song says, “This world is not my home. I’m just passin through. My treasures are laid somewhere beyond the blue [or somewhere – wherever God is]. ….”
