Goodbye Little Tiffy
Jasmine just told me the very sad news about poor little Tiffy. It made her cry. It made me cry too. Jasmine got so upset about what happened that it gave her a headache and made her feel sick in her stomach. Poor little Tiffy was just a baby. How could anyone look at this darling little thing and send her off to be killed?
of 5-Cat Style and The Flyer who tried desperately to save her.
I won't repeat the story here because it is too upsetting. If you want to know what happened, go over to 5-Cat Style and The Flyer and read the following entries:
- A rush to save Tiffy
- We were too late
- It could have been breakfast with Tiffy
- So here's what happened yesterday
When I read other poodin blogs, I am happy to see that there are plenty of good beans out there who love their kitties very much and give them everything they could ever need: plenty of food, a warm soft place to sleep, toys to play with, lots of love and scritches, and trips to the V.E.T. Yes, even the V.E.T.
I know none of us poodins like the V.E.T. but deep down inside we all know that our beans only make us visit the V.E.T. because they love us and want us to be healthy. And I know that sometimes when we want HAM our beans just give us crunchies, but seriously, if the worst thing that happens to us is that we have to eat crunchies sometimes instead of ham, and have to endure some V.E.T. visits, then we are pretty lucky poodins.
Obviously all poodins deserve to be treated with love and respect, but not all poodins are lucky enough to have such wonderful beans. Beans who treat their poodins with the same love and care as they would a little burpy thing or a little sticky person.
In memory of little Tiffy, I think those of us who are lucky enough to have wonderful beans should all give our beans extra big purrs and headbutts tonight to let them know that we really do appreciate them. And let's also be thankful for people like 5-Cat Style and The Flyer who try to do so much for poodins in need.
