PLEASE HELP: Bobby Was Desperate to Run Away. But He Couldn't.

Animals  (tags: animals, animalwelfare, cats )

- 2647 days ago -
Bobby was a tiny kitten that had been abandoned on a suburban street. A kind woman, Paula, leaned down to pick him up. He was terrified. He ran -- but Bobby's body would only take him round-and-round in a circle, as if he were chasing his tail.......

Thank you for your generous donation. Your credit card will be billed as SPCA International. If you made a one-time donation, you will receive a detailed receipt shortly. I give monthly to the ASPCA and the Humane Society but this little one needs some extra attention.

Let me say, most of my pittance goes to wildlife orgs, but I did give a small amount the other day to Heidi's Rescue for Kathy, now how could I deny you, Elsie?. You guys got to stop sending me this heartbreaking stuff - I'm going to go broke. No problem. Went to site, but where do I put that I want the money to go for Bobby? It says Honoree's name, but I didn't see for what animal. Send me a reply, either here, or at my box. I can just give a general donation, but I am assuming you want this for Bobby?

You cannot currently send a star to Constance because you have done so within the last week.
Me too, but they think everybody has a credit card (which I don't)
Thank you Elsie, wish I was rich, course I wouldn't be rich long,, too many need help.
They really should provide a mailing address for these so people like myself could help.

Thanks Elsie. Your story about the two kittens - with the one that dies the night they took her borther away - just hit my heart. And then there's Bobby ...

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge...
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge...

I believe that ALL animals, loved or unloved, go to the Rainbow Bridge, even those like the little kitten. I believe that there are people there like you and me that take care of this life's unwanted cats and dogs, so they finally know love and comfort. I'm gonna be The Crazy Cat Lady on that Rainbow Bridge.

You have a good heart Elise. I'm sure the kitty knew that even before it went to the Spirit World.

Thank you for this news story, Elsie! I posted it on my Facebook page so that others can help Snuggles as well. They are doing wonderful work to save animals that other people considered disposable. NO animal companion is disposable!

Thanks for sharing Elsie - even if I win the BIG lotto, wouldn't remain very rich for very long as there's too many members of the animal kingdom requiring assistance, especially while the filthy side of humankind is still sharing the planet with us! My granddaughter just got a baby kitty, also with some kind of disability and she's not going to grow any bigger but that's why Garlin asked her Mommy to adopt the kitty 'before someone else decides she's no good and puts her to sleep'. This past weekend was a very difficult one for her as she couldn't understand why Granny said the kitty can't come visit with her over weekends - but with four doggies I'm not taking any chances, the dogs love chasing the neighbourhood cats whenever they come within sight and I for one don't want a kitty's death on my conscience!
