R.I.P. Moonpie

Poor little Moonpie. Such a sweet little feral kitten who was captured and became a pet. In his short time with us, he came to love people. His tail quivered with excitement whenever we approached him. You couldn't ask for a sweeter kitten.

Moonpie went to the vet this morning, and ended up dying under anesthesia. It's so sad and I'm truly heartbroken. Now I guess there is no point in casting blame, although I want to blame myself for ever sending him to his doom. And if the vet thought he wasn't up to surgery, he shouldn't have put him under. But there's no point in all of that now, is there?  No, nothing can ever change what has happened. It makes me never want to take any cat to a vet ever again. I'll have to get over that, but right now it's just really hard.

Little Moonpie would have had a loving, forever home, I'm so sure. He was too sweet not to.

Moonpie, we will remember you fondly ...and miss you.


  1. I'm crying along with you, Chriss. Please don't blame yourself. No one could have predicted this except, perhaps the vet. Moonpie was such a sweetie and will be missed. You have done so much for these precious kitties. RIP little Moonpie. You were so loved.

  2. chriss....we all blame ourselves; I still blame myself for what sauce went thru back in march; I still blame the vet for not researching the drug he was given for his medical circumstances....guilt///'s human; one of those vicious emotions we must endure....we hope the good days soon replace the bad memories, and you have to know moonpie doesn't blame you; instead he's saying love you as much as you love me; and this wasn't a final good by, merely...until I see you again...God's speed wee one and HIS strength to your mom XOXOXOX

  3. Thank you, Roberta and tabbies. I guess it's just going to take me a bit to recover. Moonpie was so sweet; he would have had a home of his own. He was a wonderful kitty and it just all seems so unfair. Still, we'll go on somehow - because we have to.

  4. oh my gosh... that is so horrible :(
    My condolences to you Chriss and may this sweet angel kitten rest in peace !
    best regards,
