Very sorry Pinky didn't make it through this. Hugs.

Kat & the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde

Pinky was SO blessed to have her time with you and Evergreen!! Just look at those pictures you took and realize how much love she felt!! ::hugs:: She's running around those fields telling everycat how wonderful you are and they're all agreeing.

The Florida Furkids

We're so sorry. Pinky was so lucky to have you to love her and care for her. (((Hugs)))

I almost made it through the entire post until you said you buried her with the pink mouse...then the tears flowed :-( FIP is so awful. But sweet Pinky did know love and comfort and true friendship with you and Evers and her life even though brief was good. We were heartbroken when Max died of FIP we only had him for seven weeks but I said to Robert that I was so glad he came to us and didn't die cold and alone in some shelter cage. He knew all the love we could give him just like Pinky did, sometimes that is all we can do and for them it means the world :-)

The Poupounette

Farewell Pinky. Your daughter is absolutely right. Her life was short but full of love and caring. And remember! Evers is there and he is the JOY that must be felt and treasured.

Liz Garcia

So sorry..But you did so much for her and many things are beyond our control..But the love you gave her was in your control..Goodbye, Pinky.

Oskar & Pam

I'm so very sorry about the loss of your little one. I'm so glad that she got to feel your love during her short time here with us.

Pam & Oskar


I very much wanted Pinky to make it. But she did indeed know love, and had a great friend in Evergreen. I will always remember those pictures of them together, especially that one taken from above of them side by side, showing how tiny Pinky was. Godspeed, Pinky.


I am so sorry about Pinky, I'm sure Winnie will be waiting to help her cross over and now she will be healthy and can play and romp around like a kitten should be able to.
She was sent to you for a reason, if we could only understand why these things happen it would be so much easier to accept.
My love and prayers are with you.

Cassandra Burns

Oh, poor sweet Pinky. Sending hugs your way.

I am so sorry (and in need of a tissue). We all know going into every rescue that we may not be able to save them all. And yet we don't give up despite the heartbreak because ANY chance is better than NO chance. Fly free sweet baby.


I am so sorry, my friend. The true measure of Pinky's life is how much and how well she was loved, and how many hearts she touched. Though her time with you was very short, hers was a life well-lived. Fly free, sweet Pinky.

Thank you for your big, big heart, Chrystal. Sending you purrs and prayers of comfort.


Peace, love, strength and comfort to you, my friend.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Oh Chrystal, I'm so sorry. But I'm so glad she had you, I know you made her short life wonderful, and you let her go when it wasn't good any more. You did everything right. I know you know that, but I want you to hear it too. Hugs!

Goldie Goodwin

I am echoing what everyone else has already said. I am so grateful that little Pinky had you to love her and take care of her. The thought of her dying alone and unloved breaks my heart. But she didn't... You, your family and all of us in the blogosphere loved her. And she was cared for and happy, even if her time was very short.
Thank you for what you do. Losing a baby kitten is never easy, but for Pinky.. you made the difference in her short, but loved life.
My heartful condolences on your loss.

Milo and Alfie's mom

So very sorry. Thank you for loving her so much and doing your very best to save her. xx

Colehaus Cats

We are so sorry. Thank you for loving this little angel who would have died alone with so much pain and sadness.

Morgen Pittman

Sending love and condolences from all of us at Purrchance To Dream.
Pinky knew unconditional love and kindness, that is a true gift that you gave to this little angel. Bless you.

Alana & Crepes

oh no! Poor little darling. We're certain you did the best you could for the little darling. Purrs and love from Alana and all the kitties and pup at Catinthefridge.com.

Tears flow down my cheeks for the lost little Angel Pinky. She saw haven on earth for the time she was at Chrystal's house and she is grieved for in the finest way with a burial in the Furry plot with her favorite pink mouse and softest blanket. Fare the well over the rainbow bridge.. love lives forever. Forever loved by us all... Ginny & The Fur Family


We are so sorry that little Pinky did not make it. She had a crap life up until she was found and brought to you. You managed to put a little lifetimes worth of love into that wee girl in the two weeks you cared for her. What you did for her was no mean feat. Your heart is very strong, even though you go through so much pain helping these wonderful cats.

We send you love and rumbly purrs and sing beautiful little Pinky to The Bridge

Lee County Clowder

So, so sorry. We were so hoping Pinky would pull a turnaround like Evergreen managed.

But we're with the rest -- for a few weeks, Pinky was in ketteh hevan. She knew love, and play, and the joy of getting spoilt rotten. You did all you could, and maybe even a little more for her.

Angel Abby

There are no easy words that come off of my fingertips because when a kitten crosses the RB there are no words. The only thing I feel is that Pinky knew love and comfort. She knew compassion and caring. She knew food and most importantly she knew a home. You may not have seen my post (I've don't so many so don't feel bad if you didn't see it) about temporary homes. We all are passing through and this is only a temporary home, Pinky's was just a bit more temporary than most, but she had it all, and she knew she was loved. That in the end is what we all want. It doesn't make it any easier and it doesn't hurt any less, but you did all you could within your power and in the end you made Pinky one happy little kitty. Will keep you in my prayers.


Mindy Slimmer

Bless you Chrystal for all you do...even if sometimes you cannot save all the starfish in the sea, we know you do your best and that is all we can ask of one another...to do the best we can with what we've got.
Much Love,
Mindy :)


On behalf of every cat rescued, on behalf of those who look to us humans for help, THANK YOU for trying with Pinky. You did not give up, you did not surrender and for this I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am crying for Pinky now, even though she is at rest. Fly free sweweet soul go with our love,
