Tee Tee - 30 July 2008
Tee Tee, a sweet and gentle soul with a zest and will for life was brought to Sheep meadow Animal Hospital on Nov. 5th 2007. He was lying in a box and was barely alive. A "trailer park cat", it seemed he was abused, his spine, tail and pelvis were fractured and over 32 BB's shots were embedded in his bones. Thanks to Animalkind who responded to the call for help and Sheep meadow Animal Hospital, who medically and lovingly attended and cared for him until February 2008-he was ready to come to Animalkind's adoption center, hoping for a second chance.
I first met him at Sheep Meadow Animal Hospital and at this point there was no hope for him to ever walk again, I contacted a company that makes walking carts for animals. A walking cart for him was in the works, than he moved in with Animalkind and a special crate was set up for him. Tina, a volunteer at Animalkind, spend hours working with him, massaging his body and tenderly got him used to human touch and love again.
And than: SURPRISE-he started walking!
On May 16th I took him home with me to live out the rest of his life with me and two of his friends " Sawyer" and "Grey Boy" two handicapped rescues from Animalkind. Tee Tee LOVED his new home, it was tailored to his and his friends needs-memory foam beds in all his favorite places, sunny windows, orthopedic beds.
We developed a special routine every morning:
As soon as he saw me walking in the room, he started purring so loud that I could hear him in spite the classical music playing, he than walked over to "his" food dish and sat there until his special breakfast was delivered.
We had our special petting and combing session. He just radiated life, through all the pain and suffering he endured, no matter what the obstacles were, he never complained.
He began to get sick in July. It was a Sunday. I contacted Dr. Patterson immediately. The heart breaking diagnosis: kidney failure. I concentrated on all the things he loved so much-lots' of petting, small talk, trips outside on the grass in the sunshine and extra TLC and love and special bedding for his battered, tired body.
On Wed. July 30th 2008 an angel came and cradled him in her arm to take him to the Rainbow Bridge where there is no pain or harm. His spirit is free and in peace, they'll be no more pain for him. He's part of me inside my soul and there he'll always be.
Someday we'll meet again in a place that is hard to comprehend. No pain, no grief, no tears or fears, life will have no end.
We at Animalkind believe it is the responsibility of all human beings to help and protect those who can not speak for themselves. We strive to instill respect, kindness, compassion and love of all living things. We all need to raise awareness
to the tragedy of cruelty to helpless animals.
In loving memory of Tee Tee.
