bethostern 5 hours ago My heart is heavy this morning. Sometimes we can't save them. Howard named him Angel. A good samaritan saw him struggling outside in this frigid cold in NYC and brought him to safety 2 weeks ago. @puppykittynycty called me and said a "YODA" (white Persian kitty) needed our help. Transported from Harlem Vet Center to @animalleague he was evaluated and we found out he was severely abused, neglected, malnourished (bones visible after the shaving of the horribly matted fur-worst anyone has ever seen..), cardiac disease, hyperthyroidism, and a large tumor on his liver. I vowed to Angel that I would bring him into our home and love him & eventually find him the most loving family. He was treated by the best at @animalleague medical center. I wanted him to feel love and joy and the feeling of being safe in his lifetime. Angel wasn't strong enough. He had suffered enough from the abuse and neglect that he endured the first years of his life. He wasn't able to hang on. Rest in Peace, Angel. I barely knew you but you are in my heart forever. Thank you, @animalleague@puppykittynycty & NYC's Animal Care & Control and Harlem Veterninary Hospital and to the person who cared enough to bring him to safety. I'm so sorry Angel. I wanted to be your hero. #weloveyou#takecareofhimBianca 5 hours ago Angel the day I met him, 2 weeks ago. RIP Angel. So sad Yoda never had the chance to meet you. You are in my heart forever. 5 hours ago Angel the day I met him, 2 weeks ago. RIP Angel. So sad Yoda never had the chance to meet you. You are in my heart forever.
