Momma Is Sad

Momma had a favorite kitty in the shelter. His name was India, a sleek black beauty with golden eyes. He was still a kitten, but in the three months she has been there, hadn't put on any weight and never played. She told the techs there was something wrong, and for a while they said, he was just "laid back." Momma knew better and would hold him, but he seemed so frail and wanted to cuddle the other kitties.

Yesterday, when Momma went to the shelter, everyone was sad, and they said little India had to go to Rainbow Bridge because he got terrible sick, he couldn't even stand up. He was suffering. Momma knows it is for the best, but she misses her black beauty.

How sad. Even though the ones you see at the shelter aren't yours, they touch your heart and it is sad when they pass.

That is very sad. India will be healthy at the Bridge and will know your mum had special feelings for him.

We are so very sorry to hear about India. We know he is playing and healthy at the bridge now. At least he had the love of your mama.

I'm so sorry to hear about India. We try to not get too attached to shelter kitties while still giving them all the love they deserve, but it's never easy when one of them goes to the rainbow bridge.

I'm glad India got lots of love and cuddles from your mom before he went.

Aw, I bet Chloe showed India around at the Bridge. Chloe likes other black cats specially.
Mistrie, we have MORE mousies in the attic. Do you want to come help me catch them? We just can't bring them to Mom on the bed. She didn't say anything about the office or the living room or the table, though.
Purrrrrrrs,

Hi Piney Woods Cats!

I work at Pink Sneakers Productions and we are currently casting for a documentary series, titled “Life Chronicles,” on the TLC network. I was wondering how many cats you have and if you and your cats would be interested in participating in a documentary about cat lovers.

We are looking for individuals who have lots of cats in order to document the time, chaos and nurture that goes along with taking care of them. I would love it if you could get involved! Each episode in this series aims to document the day-to-day lives of people and their unique experiences with their cats. Our goal is to enlighten our viewers and try to get rid of the stigma that is attached to being a “crazy cat lady" and having a lot of cats. I think you could really help us get rid of this stereotype. If you are interested in this amazing opportunity please email us at casting@pinksneakers.net in order to communicate further. I hope to talk to you soon! Thanks!
