Demi (aka Sleeves)

October 17th, 2010, 11:06 AM
It is with a heart that is shattered and tears streaming I have to announce the passing of sweet little Demi this morning around 10:20. I took all six of Naddy's babies to TO to be s/n this morning. I will only be bringing back five. Demi's little heart did not survive the anesthetic. She was only six months old.
I am so so sorry I failed you Demi. Find Bandit and run free my sweet baby. Find Brownie and Li'l Momma for snuggles. :rip::angel2: Find your wings.

I'm so sorry - I'm crying as I type this. I know exactly how you feel as I had this happen once before to a kitten I had years ago.

Poor sweet baby - what a beautiful kitty. Run free :angel:

Gerri, you know in your heart that you did not fail Demi. Beyond our control God had other plans for this sweet girl. You gave her love, nurture and a home that any kitty would be blessed to have. She had her mom and her siblings with her her whole life. You gave her the best of medical care and food and shelter and boundless love. She will wait for you at the bridge with the others knowing that you, above all others (and there were many others here who loved her and her mommy to get to your sweet haven), loved her like nobody else. She may not have had a long life on this planet, but she had the very best life while in your care. You can be proud of what you gave her Gerri. Please don't ever feel you let her down, you did your best for her and she knows it. I wish I was there to give you a big hug and comfort you at this terrible time. :grouphug::grouphug: :rip: sweet Demi, both of your mommies loved you.

You certainly did not fail her dear friend, infact you saved her. I am not sure why those with the warmest of hearts is burdeoned with the despair and anguish. You are the best thing that ever happened to her, and you my friend gave her life meaning.

We grieve with you, and we support you.

Love you lots 14+K. Strength to you.:grouphug:

Little Demi, you were loved by the biggest of hearts, and forever will be. Run free little one.:candle:

October 18th, 2010, 02:30 PM
I am so sorry :rip: little Demi, you are a most wonderful soul who does so much and above and beyond for all these kitties, you most certainly did not fail her... as someone stated earlier... God just had a different plan for Demi she is an angel now :angel2:

October 18th, 2010, 04:07 PM
Oh No :cry::cry::cry: Was not expecting so sad. It goes without saying that the day Demi make the "hike" to your place was Heavensent. If not for so many kind loving souls she was saved from certain death...if she had been born at all. She knew love caring affection from her feline family and from you. That is already so much more than most.

The only human who failed her was the one who tossed Naddy out in the first place :wall: Those fools are of course never around to feel the guilt and the anguish that you are being put through now.

She was just beautiful and she is now being greeted with the far too many souls we have lost on this board recently.

I am so so sorry for you and send you :grouphug: and :pray: 14+

October 18th, 2010, 04:55 PM
MF, you gave her the best 6 months she could have asked for. Without you, she would have not made it. She would have been on the streets of Montreal trying to fend for herself.

YOU DID NOT FAIL her!!!!!!! No One could have known how she would react to the anesthetic. You could not have known!!!

You have done more for this family than anyone combined.

:rip:Demi. You were an angel

14 I am so sorry, you did nothing wrong you did what we all do, care for and love our pets but you do it like no other :grouphug:


October 19th, 2010, 04:19 AM
14+ I am so sorry for your loss:grouphug:

I also agree with everyone, you did not fail her. You MF gave her the best chance at life, like you do all your precious kitties.

:rip: beautiful Demi

Thank you everyone for your wonderful support. Both members still posting on Pets and the ones who no longer post but emailed me. :grouphug: I truly appreciate your thoughts. I have a hole in my heart where my lost babies live. With time it heals over and fills with many wonderful memories. Then it gets ripped open again. This one is going to take some time. Demi was so young and this was so totally unexpected.
I will answer the PMs I have later on if I may. :grouphug: Again, thank you all. :grouphug:

My dearest Earth Angel, YOU DID NOT FAIL DEAR DEMI! Without your wonderful, huge heart, Demi would not have known love, comfort, happiness and true heartfelt love, she would most likely have passed a horrible, lonely, homeless live. But you saved her from that. YOU treated her as your own child, and I know, as do you, deep in your heart, you made her life loving for her short time.

I'm so very, very sorry to hear of your loss of your wonderful furbaby. Please, try to take comfort in the fact, you gave her the best life and love possible while she was with us. Unfortunately, those who love these wonderful gifts from God, who bring the most joy to our animals, are also those who hurt the most when it's time for them to run freely with others that have passed.

As I've told you, I have a candle next to my computer, which is kept only for such losses, I used it when Shannon passed. I am lighting it now for Demi, and will also say a prayer for you to find the happy memories of Demi soon. You are an angel on Earth my dear friend, and now you share your angel wings with Demi. Demi, will forever be with you in your heart, and please, believe, not only did you not fail Demi, but gave that wonderful kittly a life she'd never known without you. I believe, the plan was in place, and through His wisdom, he made it possible for Demi to enjoy being truly loved and cared for by His Earth Angel. Blessings 14+, I'm lighting my candle now, and thinking of my 2 Angels. :candle::grouphug::candle:

Thank you Shannon for your thoughtfulness. :grouphug: It is very much appreciated. I miss Demi. Every time I see the other kittens I count little ones. I forget there isn't six anymore. :(

:rip: sweet :angel2: Demi :candle: She is playing at the Rainbow Bridge ( with those who've gone before :candle: :grouphug:

She was needed elsewhere :grouphug:

14+, I'm so sorry to read Demi did not make it though her operation. What a beautiful little angel she was. I don't for one second believe you failed her, and neither should you.

You gave her love, and for a short time she knew what it was to be loved.
