Butterball/ ww photo

Photobucket
tribute; wordless wed. photo
Junior had a litter of six kittens earlier this year.
Butterball went to rainbow bridge at 7 weeks of age. She was this tiny authentic angel radiating life, spunk and beautiful full fluffy ginger-white fur. She had a wobble as she walked and she loved to cuddle up to me on the blanket, any blanket.
Then one night she started going downhill fast. Why!
I comforted her as she passed on. She struggled.
Neither she , nor I, understood. To see such a life be born and then to sit helplessly as its life is taken. Many cat lovers have blogs I have come to find. Some posts have mentioned RB and it moved me to honor Butterball on this day; although she lives in my heart daily. May her photo also remind us of all the other kittens who have passed on suddenly; also sometimes known as fading kitten syndrome.
My perfect little one, xoxo mommy.

Butterball was very pretty ~ we are sad that she had to go to rainbow bridge so early ~ sometimes it means some congenital problem with the young kitten..purrs to you..

That is a beautiful photo. We are sorry your little angel passed. There is never a good reason for something like that. It is hard to accept.

Yes, we are two pugs. Lucky, my "blonde" (fawn) sister, and me, Roxy, The Devil Dog, the black pug. Mom hijacked my blog (she is doing that a lot lately) but it should be back to all mine tomorrow. There is a photo of me on it today.
:)
Thanks for the visit.

((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))
I saw a comment you left on Fin's blog wondering what a tuxedo cat was.
Here is a link that is on the Cat Blogosphere's page. It contains a glossary and is very helpful :)

Arwh kitties, we only have one now. Should have two but Vince had to be put down when he got sick long before his time, still think of him almost every day. 4 though gee your pug must have fun!

whatloknows said...

We apprecaited all of your words.
This post/comments made me happy for it brought her to life in so many ways thu thought and love. And now, she will be remembered by many.

Thank you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

It is always hard to lose a furbaby, no matter what their age. This poor kitty never had much of a chance at life and that is so sad. But Butterball had love and was cared for during her short stay. It's nice you honored her with a post.

The Cat Realm said...

We are so sorry, she was such a sweet angel.... we never heard of fading kitten syndrome - it sounds awful.

Kelly Cat said...

Thank you for writing about Butterball. Even in a too-short life, she made a lasting impression on you.
