The last photos taken of Tiffy

I had gotten them from Melissa a while back, but never got a chance to post them up.
Tiffy was such a bundle of joy, a ball of pure energy and delight. There's a part of me that still can't believe she really is gone.

what a precious, gorgeous little angel.

We are so very sad. We've read about little Tiffy off and on, and the close relationship she managed to develop with Gucci. The pictures you posted of her have made many of us feel that we knew her. She was a precious little life.

You did all you could do. You trusted that a person wouldn't behave in such an unspeakable manner, because your heart is kind. Kind hearts can't imagine that kind of meanness. It seems impossible that anyone could do anything so cruel, but the fault is all his, and he'll have to deal with the karma that will come from it.

Keep up your good work. You are doing so much for so many. We're so sorry, again, that you had to lose this special little one. We know your heart is breaking. Many are praying for you.

We are so saddened to hear about Tiffy. What a sweet angel. You did all that you possibly could have, and we are purraying for you and also for Gucci.

Every time I see her pictures, I think of my baby, Isis, and I just want to hold her as close as I can. (Unfortunately, she won't let me because she doesn't like being held, but then I can lay on the bed, and we'll snuggle nonetheless!) Thank you for the pictures of a truly wonderful, spirited feline.

5 Cat Style, you've been a wonderful foster mom to little Tiffy. After reading about their adventures on your blog, its as if I knew her too. Losing a kitty feels like our own child had died doesn't it? Take care.

Looking at her, so sweet and content and trusting really makes my heart ache for her loss.

We can be sure she is in a better place now. Safe from hunger, sickness and pain. Be happy forever Tiffy.

Stay strong 5-Cat Style and those who share the loss of Tiffy... my prayers will be with you 5-Cat Style. :)


Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

-Mary Frye

I feel so very sorry for all involved. Please don't give up. Those girls need to see a good example like you, and there sure are kitties that need you, too.

That kitty must have looked like my Cos when he was little. Thanks for the time you gave this kitty as I am sure it made her short time here special.
Big hugs,

These pictures just break our hearts over again. Life sure isn't fair sometimes is it?

I am so sorry to hear that. I was here to read about Tiffy when she first entered your life and, knowing she is gone now is truly sad. Having lost a kitten recently, I understand the pain. Reading this certainly brought up old wounds, and I feel for you. I hope you will do what you can to bring Gucci to safety. Knowing how Tiffy lost her life is just something all of us don't want a repeat off. She is with God; a better place. *hugs*

Buddy said...

Poor Gucci...he must be missing his friend. I do the "push/touch" thing with my beans. I like to be able to touch them both while I sleep. I see Gucci did the same with Tiffy. I will send him snuggy thoughts. Purr-Purr

Sonia said...

i JUST cannot wrap my mind around why people do this. Such a throw away society we live in. This makes me terribly terribly mad :(

DEBRA said...

Such lovely photos and thank you 5 cats for posting them.

In your our thoughts little angel.

What a lovely little creature. What a heartbreaking situation. Please take care of yourself through all this! We send our warmth and purrs.

Our post about Tiffy is part of this week's Carnival of the Cats cuz what happened to Tiffy an Gucci had such an impact on cat bloggers. Mom wanted to point out how many bloggers paid tribute, but they linked us instead. Mom counted more than 10 blogs that told about Tiffy. She will not be forgotten. Mom's still sad an huggin me maybe a little too much.

Cate said...

What happened to this beautiful little cat was not meant to happen, this was a bad thing out of harmony with some sort of natural order. Any death is hard but such a wrong and unnatural ending to her life makes it even more difficult.

Perhaps there is such a thing as reincarnation and the bright spark of light that left Tiffy will find its way into another little body and you may meet again.

'She Dwelt Among the Untrodden Ways'

She dwelt among the untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove,
A maid whom there were none to praise
And very few to love:

A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye!
Fair as a star -- when only one
Is shining in the sky.

She lived unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
The difference to me!

William Wordsworth

Zi said...

Yoz! This is indeed a tragic incident *shakes head* I think I'll be too pissed to live on if my parents did that to any of my cats! *hugs to all*

On a seperate note, i'm so proud of you guys and your blog! It's great and it does make a difference!

Gigolo Kitty said...

I have been away from the blogosphere for a while and I just heard about Tiffy. I am so very, very sorry to hear about it. Tiffy was a darling.
