"Our animal friends teach us more than we could have expected and love us more than we could have hoped…that’s why we miss them more than we could have imagined."

Rest In Peace, Sweetie 🥀

Sweetie was a sweet and loving cat who meant the world to her owner. Living in a single-cat home, Sweetie got lots of love and attention. Her owner fell on hard times this past year and was trying to nurse Sweetie to health on his own, while also dealing with his own major health concerns. He contacted For The Love Of Alex when it became obvious that she didn't just have a passing virus. Sweetie's symptoms reminded us very much of Burrito Kitty, and we felt that with testing and hospitalization, Sweetie could be in good shape very soon.

On Tuesday she was taken to the hospital and her owner showed the technician baby pictures of Sweetie and expressed his love for her. Then preliminary testing began, and besides some anxiety from being at the vet, Sweetie seemed to be doing okay. We were on track when Sweetie had a sudden massive heart attack and was lost to us. It was shocking and a terrible tragedy for Sweetie's owner, the treating veterinarian, and our small team at FTLOA.

We share Sweetie's story, not to bring you down, but to join us in offering condolences to Sweetie's loving owner. Your thoughts and prayers mean a lot to him.

In total, we were only able to fund $400 worth of veterinary care for Sweetie before she passed. Any help in raising those funds is appreciated.

Much love to all of our Angels. Please give your pets a little extra love today.


Stay tuned for updates.
