Panther & baby

This is a picture of Panther and her baby. Panther came to us about 2 years ago, and it took some time for her to trust us and come close. She has had many babies but none of them survived. On July 27th she had 1 baby outside my front door. I took her and her baby inside so that maybe this little one would make it, however, at 15 days old, she passed over the Rainbow Bridge. I don't know what happened, she was fine in the afternoon and then gone that evening. I will remember her for the sweet little thing she was. I have put Panther back outside and plan to have her spay, so she will not have to go through this again. -Becky

Panther is such a strong Mom. It must have been so hard for her to have babies but not to see any of them grow into adults. She's a pretty girl from what I can see of her. Thanks for watching out for her.

FFGT UPDATE!
For those who are still wondering and interested, our group get together will be June or July of 2008! Members old and new, please get the word out. As it stands, the Fuzz Family Get Together is planned for Big Cedar Lodge in Hollister/Branson, Missouri. Contact me with any questions. triskart@hotmail.com
The reason the site was taken away for the FFGT was to re-do and gather more information. I plan to make another information site but not until closer to time.

Good morning all! She is a pretty momma and it is a shame all her babies didn't make it. Any updates, Becky on Panther? The little baby in the pic looks maybe Siamese. Like he/she would have gotten more color as it got older.

Hope everyone is doing well! Off to take Jude to Pre-K!

Awww the photo is so sweet.It's so sad about her babies.She looks like she would make a great mother.Yet I agree that it's a good idea to have her spayed eapecially if she's an outdoor kitty.She's so beautiful.

momsbusy said...

what a pretty girl. so sad about her babies. perhaps they inherited a genetic defect that did not allow them to survive. it is best she gets spayed.

Kim said...

I agree with everyone, spaying is the best option. I don't know if she is your kitty or not but if you can, maybe take her to the Humane Society. They spay animals and it's much more affordable than other places. Still think you're doing a great job.

Rose said...

It's so sad when a seemingly healthy kitten passes within hours of playtime. I had a kitten that did that when I was in my young teens. We'd gotten it from the shelter, so her history was unknown...I do agree, please have that beauty of a momcat spayed for her health's sake. As Kim said, there are low-to-no cost! Where do you live? I'll help you "Google"!

I'm glad the Get Together is still on! Makes a lot more sense to restart the site closer to time. Thanks, Kim for letting us know!

It's so odd that all her kittens never reached maturity. You would think at least some of them would. Yes, spaying would be in order so she doesn't have any more like that. Poor Baby. She is so pretty. I would ask around as sometimes you can get a voucher or something for spaying and it won't cost as much. Cleo cost me five bucks to have her spayed.

You must go see the cartoon at Beau & Angies, absolutely HILARIOUS. Oh, too funny. Poor kitty will never want food again.

Emma's Kat said...

I saw that the other day!! Yes, it is hilarious!! Lol!

Wow, where is everyone! It is yet again, quiet...[sniff sniff] ;)

momsbusy said...

hey kat, did you notice your title for today?

Emma's Kat said...

Momsbusy - What's wrong w/the title? Panther and baby. Hehehe! j/k...Oooops! Dunnow how I made that boo boo! Just like I made all the others, right!? Thanks for letting me know!

Panther looks like such a sweet, shy girl. How sad that the babies didn't make it. Rescue groups usually have access to vouchers for free spay/neuter, if cost is a problem. Does the sweet girl prefer to be an outside cat?

jess said...

awww what sweet pic! poor baby and poor Panther for not having much luck with kittens. definately spay her! it's probably so painful to have so many litters. sorry, off my soapbox now!

she really is a beautiful Mom and the baby would've been gorgeous too.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Panther is a beauty, too bad about this little one and all her little babies. She should definitely be spayed, especially if she is outside. You don't want her to have to go through the heartbreak of having kittens and then losing them again.
If you -- or anybody -- ever need any help finding resources for the spaying, just let us know...we're all cat crazy here and glad to help.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Any word on ADAM yet??????

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Karen C just emailed and is still awaiting word on Adam, just as we all are.....

Emma's Kat said...

::sigh:: I hope all went well w/his surgery! I'm sure it did.

Kim said...

I'm hopeful that all is well with Adam. The Vet doing the surgery must be a good human being. He was willing to help sweet Adam, even if the monetary goal was not met. Not everyone would do that.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

I am so sorry, I posted on the Pet Prayer & Praise...Adam is doing fine. They had thought about waiting to do the surgery, but it turned out it was good they didn't. He was really sick. He probably wouldn't have lasted another month. Anyway, he is in excellent health, resting comfortably. Karen C will have an update on her blog when she gets home.

Kim said...

OH thank goodness!!! Thanks ML, you really are so wonderful for letting us know. Of course, you're just wonderful in general!:)

Emma's Kat said...

So glad to hear the good news of Adam! Well, off the the PP&P Blog, then to draft the post for tomorrow's cat of the day and finally TO BED!!!! Must...get...rest! Lol! Night!
