Oh, we are so sorry you lost Winnie. You did all you could and even though she only had one day, she was loved and cuddled until she left for the bridge. We know how it breaks a heart to lose a furry. Purrs and tail wags.

The Island Cats

We just heard about sweet Winnie. We are so sorry that she has gone to the Bridge. At least in her short time with you, she knew love. We send you comforting purrs....

Wally, Ernie & Zoey


The tears are streaming down my face at Winnie going off to the Bridge. My heart breaks for another small tiny soul to have left us all way too soon. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and we thank you for all that you did in your valiant attempt to save Winnie.

You were where you were meant to be for her - sometimes all we can do is offer our love. With deep sadness and sympathy.

Charlemagne and Tamar

We're so very sorry to hear that poor little Winnie went to the Bridge. She knew love and happiness during her very short time with you. We're sending purrs of comfort during this heartbreaking time. Thank you for making her feel loved and happy and for staying with her through it all.

Charlemagne and Tamar


Oh how sad. At least take comfort that you gave Winnie a chance she wouldn't have otherwise had. Her last day was spent in safety and snuggles, not in fear or loneliness. And that's good.

 Ginny&the Fur Family

A few hours have passed and everyone came by to give prayers for Winnie - how sweet that is and would like to know if the puppies went on today to the place they were to go. I do hope they all have a chance for a loving home. I enjoyed looking at them, especially Marianne, if I had a better place in the country I would have loved to have one of them but I have the limit for my town home and little yard. I dream like you of homes for all furry ones. I know as cute as they are someone will take them one or two at a time. - hugs and good wishes to you.

The Creek Cats

We are heartbroken for you. Bless you for loving and caring for Winnie and being with her if only for a short time. She knew she was loved and without you, she would have never known how that felt. We are sending you our best comforting purrs and love.


I am so sorry to hear that Winnie lost her fight. Thank you for caring. For letting her know love. Purrs to you and yours.

We are sorry Winnie never had a chance to know what a wonderful and amazing world this is...but we are SO very glad that in your arms and those of everyone in your family that tiny girl DID get to know the absolute joy of beig loved unconditionally! Find comfort in what you gave that precious kitten in her final days...dignity...a name...security...and peace. It is never easier but it IS worth the heartbreak...you are heroes!

We are sad for your loss. But Winnie was very lucky to spend her last with such a loving fambily. We purrs that your pain will ease.

Nico, Simon & JayJay

Poor little Winnie, at least she didn't die scared and alone. You gave her comfort and love - the most wonderful things in the world. As much as I am crying that she didn't make it, I am very happy that you shared her story. It takes a strong, compassionate person to take in an animal in need - there is always a risk that things won't work out. To go ahead and try anyway shows what an incredible person Winnie spent her last hours with.

Thank you for all that you do,
Cory (Nico, Simon & JayJay)

Special thoughts of you as you mourn the loss of Winnie.

Shirley Gantt

we are saddened to hear that winnie went to the bridge. you gave her a chance to experience a full belly, a warm bed and love. although she didn't stay long, she left knowing what many cats/dogs never get a chance to experience. so in a way she was fortunate. please continue rescuing those less fortunate cats/dogs and give them a chance at experiencing what every pet deserves. we will be praying for your heart to be comforted.


We were so hoping that little Winnie would make it. Purrs.

Cory and family


Thank you for helping little Winnie and ensuring that she spent her short time on earth surrounded by love and care. What you did was so important and not every human would do what you did. Fly free at The Bridge little Winnie, you were one very special little kitten.

Love and rumbly purrs

We are sorry to hear that little Winnie has gone to the Bridge. Thank you so much for caring for her and trying hard to give her a chance to live and for being with her at the start of her journey to a better place.

I can't imagine a sweeter way to leave for the Rainbow Bridge than to be held and loved. Our hearts go out to you all.

Will & Cloe

We are very sorry for your loss, Cloe & I. Cloe is a 4 week old kitten who entered my life a week ago. I love Cloe very much already & her I. It would hurt me like it does you if I were to loose her. Winnie's spirit lives on & through many souls to include ours.


I am crying right now reading this...i am clearly behind the eightball here.....i just read about you finding her and was so full of hope and joy. I feel like the bottom was just pulled out from under me! I'm so so sorry for your loss but you can be happy knowing that this sweet baby knew love and compassion before leaving this world.
Precious little soul is the perfect sentiment.

Neala's Mom

I am so very sad about the loss of Winnie... I really thought she would pull through from your first post- but I guess she had things to do at the Bridge.

Neala's Mom

You write of wanting to give a happy ending and I know, through Neala's story, her life and her loss, how much you truly wanted that. I was in your shoes on the 1st of July. It's such a hard feeling and I really am glad you can feel the support and love everyone is sending.
