It’s a sad story about the old girl, but also a happy one. She was undoubtedly in Heaven on Earth for that one night before went to Heaven itself. Delicious food, clean water, warmth and comfort were the last things she felt in this world. May that be the same for all of us. But it is heart-wrenching that she would have spent so long with hunger and thirst - and fear - in the almost silent dark.

There is a famous book about the Second World War in Malaya, called “The Jungle is Neutral”. That is what nature is: neutral. It doesn’t care one way or the other, and most animals, if they live as long as this one, can expect only debilitation, hunger and fear as they age. Dying in nature is rarely easy. Thanks to your daughter, this passing was indeed easy, after one glorious night.

Ginny & the Fur Family

John is so right. Death in the wild is not an easy one. I cry when I think of all the old animals who die alone in such bad shape. I wish we could save them all but alas it is not possible. Animals are like people when they age. Unless some one cares for them it is a sad state. At least the poor ole girl was in comfort her last hours. Bless the Wild Angels for all they do to save whom they are able.

John said it best. One last glorious night. But it still brought tears to my eyes.

The Poupounette Gang

I agree that giving that old girl such comfort in her last hours was a very special gift. Many years ago, I saved a terribly sick older cat from the streets of Tokyo. It died soon after but it was lying in the sun, on grass, with a full tummy.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Bless your whole family for all the care they show to every single animal. You're all amazing!

Friends, Wild Angels has no funding except what gets donated on their facebook page, and I'm betting it's not that much. So if you are inclined to help people who help animals, consider making such a donation.
Also, Don't forget Winnie's Wish when making donations! Wish List items always appreciated too!
