Poor Scruffy...





We had this poor stray cat that has been hanging around the neighborhood for the past month or so. The poor thing is so skinny, you could look through it. And his long hair was all matted and he had huge patches missing as well. We have been leaving him food and he will just chow down on it, but it doesn't look like he is gaining anything. You could tell the poor thing just wanted to have someone to love him, after he got used to us he would come right over to us and let us pet him. Today I noticed that he really wasn't looking good (more so than usual), one of his eyes looked horrible and he was drooling some nasty stuff. So we had to make the tough decision of taking him in and having him put to sleep. We were pretty sure he didn't have an owner the way he looked (and if he does than that person should be shot!) We felt pretty bad about it, but than we also don't want the poor guy to suffer. Here are some pictures of the poor fella, you can see just what bad shape he was in. I'll miss seeing the poor guy everyday... You can tell that he must of been just a beautiful cat when he was healthy. What a sad way to have to go.

That poor kitty, at least he felt love from your family before he had to go.
