We are all devastated that this story had such an unhappy ending, especially when we had such great hopes for the rest of Farley's life. In my mind, I already had him well, sunning on the cat perch beside the window and just waiting for the perfect home. What hurts the most is that the chance was there.
It was not to be however, and the thing I am most grateful for was to see what kind of people are out there looking out for the animals. What an amazing group, and I just know that the next time such a situation arises, this group will ride to the rescue again - and the ending will be better!
At Purr Partners, we truly believe that every cat has value. As stated in our mission statement, we believe that every cat has value far beyond just their value to humans.
Again, thank you to everyone who cared about Farley. We know we did the right thing in making the decision to have him euthanized, but it doesn't make it any easier. I am just so thankful that he didn't have to continue to suffer, and that at the end, he was surrounded by love. Yes, he was just a cat, but he had such value! All of these "just cats" should be treasured by someone, and for those who do not have that someone, we hope to be their voice.
We don't have a website yet, but you can contact us here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, to all of you who responded, and to all of you cared and may have cried just a little for Farley, we did good. We did real good.
