I began collecting them and freezing them for some unknown purpose. Today we bury her with her little critters.

Marty
2013-2014
Her cry sounded like that of a balloon when pinched and squeezed. She climbed over the house to visit our bedroom window each morning. Her catches, she’d share them with us: leaving a mole a shrew or a vole of sorts. She was the runt, a look alike to her mother, Ernie. She was kind and sweet and swift on her feet. Little Miss I’d like to say. She was the sweetest little feral kitty. She was spayed by cats anonymous and enjoyed a life most cats would love. She will be missed and remembered. Good bye my little Miss Marty.

Marty
day 3 of 3 of
It has been a busy week of ups and downs and just a load of “life gets in the way” kind of stuff. So, here is one last story of Marty. Marty is a little female – the runt from Ernie’s first litter. She has recently discovered how to climb over the house to find our bedroom window. And about a week or so we discovered she was marking and it wasn’t normal, a bit red in fact. Today she went to the vet, and after some pokes and prods she is diagnosed with a urinary tract infection, with crystalline debris in her bladder. What does this mean? Another vet bill and a permanent dietary change to canned food only – no more bags of food for this lady… But how does one regulate the food an outdoor kitty eats? Make them an indoor kitty, i guess…
And with that, I bring this all to a close Is a 3 day challenge to tell a story each day with three or more images collaged. I was invited by @patricialaydorsey And will challenge @mariossavva

Saddest Day

So today is day 1 of 3. The saddest day in a long time. Last night we were advised there was now room at the shelter for the last of the kittens we have been socializing for months. Kayla’s facebook post says it best: “…We just got back from bringing the last nine kittens to the shelter to be adopted out. I feel like a traitor and quite honestly a bit dead inside. I think it will help if I tell myself that soon they won’t remember who I was invited by @patricialaydorsey I invite @victor_cobo
