Archie, Maya, and Spooky(?). My family of kitties. :3
Spooky(?) is a scaredy kitten. He needs more toys.
OFFICIALLY A CRAZY CAT LADY.
In order to adopt Baby #2 (http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25840120)
I have to adopt his mommy as well. (http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25839992)
Total will be $145. Any donations would be great since I’ll be tapping into food money for this. :3
I’ve never had 3 kitties before. Should be interesting. I get them both on Wednesday.

So on Monday I am either getting a 6 week old black kitten or a 6 week old part Siamese white kitten with blue eyes. I’m waiting on a call for the latter.
If you’d like to donate to its first vet visit it would be much appreciated. I will be posting many pics as soon as I have taken them.
Today has been a month since Nico was killed. I still hurt, but it’s not debilitating anymore. Archie is lonely though. Hopefully this kitten will help.

This is how I feel about losing Nico.
- Taking him to the vet was the impending impact.
- Making the decision to and putting him to sleep was the impact.
- The fire consuming the earth was the following two days.
- I am currently working on letting the fire die out, but there will forever be a giant crater in my heart from losing my baby.
I am getting a new kitty on Tuesday though. I am eating a little now. I’ve laughed a few times. I still don’t feel like speaking.
I sleep with his favorite toy. I have a kleenex with his blood on it in a ziplock baggy. I find myself petting the blanket beside me where he should be. Archie cries all night and goes out searching for Nico whenever he can.
We are trying to get over it though. As much as we can. It is a slow process made more difficult by having to prepare the house for the new kitty. I feel guilty removing Nico’s presence, but it must be done.
I will always love him, but I have room to save another kitty, and I will do just that.
In memory of Nico. The sweetest little cuddleslut who ever lived.
Nico is dead.
I took him to the vet wrapped in a soft blanket yesterday. There was only one wound, which meant it wasn’t a cat attack. He had pain in his abdomen, he was pale, and his temp was below normal. Because of this we did x-rays.
Nico was shot. There was a .22 lodged under his heart surrounded by blood. He was bleeding internally and going downhill every minute.
Even as I write this I’m crying. I can barely deal with this.
I had two choices, but only one was viable.
I could either spend $5-6K that I didn’t have and drive 2 hours to bring him to a place that could do thoracic surgery that would leave him in intensive care (only a 50% chance he’d even make the drive), or I could put him to sleep.
I had a third option. I could have him put on pain meds and antibiotics and bring him home to die. I almost did this, but Alison said Nico would suffer more even on pain meds. He’d have a hard time breathing and such.
So I went for option number 2.
I held him as she did it. I sang Soft Kitty. I told him I loved him. I kissed his head and stroked his body after it was done.
I came home with an empty blanket, ate, took 5 Tylenol PMs, cried violently for about 2 hours, and passed out.
I feel like my heart has been ripped from my chest.
Archie is beginning to notice that something is wrong. He’s been crying a lot.
Someone killed my baby and I want to die.
Please help me.
I think Nico might die.
I woke up this morning and Nico walked slowly into my room and lied down. I picked him up and brought him to bed and noticed his side was wet. I figured it was from the rain and began to wipe him off. The kleenex came off bloody. I called the vet, but they said an emergency visit could cost up to $500 if he needs surgery and they said I can’t pay over time.
I’ve washed the wound area (not sure of the exact location) with hot soapy water mixed with a little peroxide and I have him covered up in front of a space heater. He’s lethargic and his breathing seems a bit off. He’s cooler than normal. I’ve been crying the last 30 minutes or so, but I don’t want to stress him out more.
I applied for some care credit thing, but I was declined because of lack of credit history. I can’t afford the vet because of bills this month.
I don’t know what to do anymore.
My paypal is Cylly.Twatz@Gmail.com if anyone wants to chip in.
CUTEST FROG EVER. I WANT TO STICK MY FINGER IN ITS MOUTH.
