Rest In Peace

For the cat I called Buddy who was TNRd and then abandoned by his "caretaker" I want to tell people that you will be missed and you were loved.

I was feeding him and the other abandoned cats that were left behind. On Saturday some neighbors told me different versions of the same story about a cat being killed in the street. I have since come to believe it was Buddy. No one else may have cared but I am terribly sad and it is a shame that he died like this.

Rest in peace Buddy. You deserved better.

    Thank you Leslie. I wish I had a picture of him. I don't consider I made his life better at all. All I did was feed him and talk to him. He deserved much better. I believe all animals (like children) deserve loving homes. In a perfect world, right, I know. I am still feeding the others except now I am not seeing them. I know they know he is gone. That is another part of this that is staying with me. They lost a family member and I can never undo that for them. At least now people can read this post and know that a cat who seemingly had no one who cared did have someone who cared, and any unfortunate mistreated animal out there should have at least that.
