View Full Version : Prayers Needed Desparately

August 29th, 2013, 03:28 AM
Tonight there was a horrible accident at my apartment. My BF was home alone with the cats and I was at school. He dished himself a bowl of ice cream, put the ice cream away, went back for his bowl and stepped back. What he didn't realize was that our 7 wk old, Rascal, was right under where he put his foot. Before he knew it, Rascal was dead. It took about 30 minutes for me to see his message on my phone while at school. I left immediately and came home to an awful scene. My BF can't really tell me what happened, but from the blood everywhere it looks like he picked up Rascal and ran around. He didn't know what to do.

Now my BF, Marty, is blaming himself for what happened. I've told him several times that it was an accident, a horrible accident. Even the vet tech at the emergency clinic we took him to said she sees it a lot with these tiny kittens.

Please pray for Marty. I can only imagine what he's going through...replaying the whole thing in his mind.

Sassy, our little girl, is young enough that she'll forget her brother. Coal, another of our cats, was very close to Rascal. He doesn't understand why Rascal isn't here either. But he will forget. But, will Marty?

Thank you.

Prayers for all of you.

August 29th, 2013, 01:26 PM
Oh my goodness. I cannot imagine what he is going through. Prayers for all.

Pam, I am so sorry! Prayers for you, Marty, and all the kitties.

August 29th, 2013, 05:35 PM
Oh no, what a horrible thing to have happen. I'm so sorry.

August 29th, 2013, 06:57 PM
They are called accidents for a reason. I hope he can forgive himself. Sorry for your loss.

August 29th, 2013, 08:02 PM
Prayers are coming for all of you. It certainly was an accident, everyone knows how much he loves these cats and kittens.

Oh Pam... I am so sorry! It's hard not to blame yourself when something like this happens, but I hope your boyfriend will come to understand that it was just a horrible accident.... Prayers for him.... He must feel just awful....

Thank you, everyone! We spent our day making arrangements. Rascal will be cremated and have an urn identical to the one we got for Daphne just 5 months ago. Marty is doing better but time will heal him. He and I have already decided our New Years resolution will be to stay away from the pet cemetery next year. I love you all!

Love and hugs!

How awful....and poor Marty. His reaction shows he is a man that has real feelings and true emotion. A lot of guys would have reacted by saying "I'm sorry, but it was JUST a cat."....insensitive. Will be praying for him, that good things come into his mind to help ease this terrible accident. He will be okay, but it may take a while....I cannot imagine how I would feel if I had something like that happen to me. :(
