We took the little kitten that I found in the road the other day to the Vet yesterday for her shots. We call her Callie. However, we received bad news. She has Feline leukemia. We will have to keep her separate from the others and wash thoroughly after handling her, but so be it. Sadly This news broke my heart…she is so loving…But I will not give up on her…I have faith and I have love for all of God’s little creatures…below is what Jan wrote to me last night in regards to Callie. The photo is of her loving me and I her this morning.

Callie’s Death Sentence


Lord, Why???

All he asked for was a little one to love.
One that would rub, knead and curl upon his lap to sleep.
We already have two that are only for themselves.
You can scratch their backs whenever you can corner them…

They eat, they sleep and they poop…
That’s about all they are good for.
They were abandoned, starving and lonely.
And we took them in, fed them, and took them for their shots.
And above all we showed them love.

And still nothing.
Only time they come running is when you pick up the food box.
Then there is Callie.
She is yet another abandoned; starved and lonely baby.
But this one is different.

She hugs your neck when you pick her up.
She kneads all over you without using claws.
She gives sugar and looks into your eyes
With a look of thanks and love.

Every bone in her little body shows.
But she waits to be held and loved on before she partakes.
She has no voice, she does not cry. And we don’t know why.
Is she too weak, or did she cry her voice out when you left her on the street?

But now he holds her, his little love.
And he knows that she may not be there long.
We will love her and hold her
And she will know that what time she has left on earth
Will not be in vain.

She will never again be hungry,
She will never again be cold,
She will never again be scared,
And she will live her life knowing she is loved.


Daddy and Moma love you little Callie
As we also love Sparky and Smokey and Miss Minnie.

Feline leukemia virus is a disease that is caused by this virus. It is a form of cancer of the blood cells called lymphocytes (a leukemia).
According to our Vet, when a kitten has this, they do not live to be a year old. We estimate this kitten to be 3 or 4 months old...

This Callie [for me] sounds like a gift and some how a life lesson.
May her loving days be lengthened.

Oh, this is so sad. You will make Callie's time on earth very special for her and she will return your love as you hold and cuddle her. She sounds like such a lovable and worthy cat. Bless you for caring for her!

I am so sorry, Allen; I wish there was something I could do ... you have had too much in the way of pain in your life; you deserve to have something good happen to you! Praying for you now more than ever!

(((HUGS))), much love, and continuing prayers~

As always, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(

How very tragic..

Only GOD in His wisdom knows and understands it all, Bubba.

But methinks all the signs show that the LORD is trying to lead you back to Hospice Care.. which I believe is your Call.

Callie was PLACED into your path. The LORD already KNEW you would gather her up, and tend to her needs.. and give her unconditional love.

What a beautiful written expression of your love, Jan..

As Mr. Ed says, GOD Bless both you and little Callie.

I am praying..

Love, Sis

I am so, so, sorry to hear this horrid news, J. Allen. I hadn't even thought about feline leukemia when you e-mailed me about Sparky's problems. And what a sweetheart she appears to be in your photo. But I also know that:

You will love her and hold her

And she will know that what time she has left on earth

Will not be in vain.

These abandoned orphans truly do deserve as much love as we can give them, for as long as they are here, and they truly do appreciate any and all love that they receive from us. God Bless both you and little Callie.
