Beth, I am in tears over this story, but so relieved Lola had your love and tenderness and compassion. I'll spend a quiet moment or two this evening to ask Smokey, Tuxedo, Scooter, Taj and Rani to make a special effort to welcome Lola to their now trouble-free home on the other side. God bless you, and all the wonderful people on this list, who make it their work to care for those so many have forgotten and neglected. You are all angels walking among us.

I ran up there & didn't see a thing at first. She was a tiny brown tabby sitting so still in the leaves that I didn't even see her. She blended right in. She was so cold & wet & could barely make a sound. I put her in a carrier wrapped in a towel & met some other volunteers who took her to the emergency vet. She was so cold her temp didn't even register. She was FeLV positive & had severe ulcers in her mouth. The vet estimated her to be about 2 years old though she looked like she was only 3 months old. After some time trying to raise her temp they determined the best thing was to euthanize her. Her heart was barely pumping. I named her Lola so she would have a name before going over the Rainbow Bridge. It is so sad to think how long she may have been there & how many people saw her & just kept going without a second thought. What a sad story. Even sadder because I know she is just one of many who meet their end this way. At least she had a name :( Beth Don't Litter, Fix Your Critter! www.Furkids.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org __________ NOD32 5997 (20110329) Information __________ This message was checked by NOD32 antivirus system. http://www.eset.com _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
