We will never forget you…
All loved Bärle
He was ‘only’ a street cat, but simply something very special. He appeared years ago on the feeding site on the mola, his fur so encrusted that the vet had to cut it first. Then he loved it every day to be brushed. From whence he came, he has never told us. But probably times ago he must have been a family pet, because he was not at all shy, but trusting to all people.
All who came, stopped to welcome Bärle and to pet him. And his godmother from Berlin sent him treats, which he gladly shared with his comrades and friends of the feeding site. But one day, Bärle came hobbled on only three legs, the fourth so strangely angled. We took him to the vet, and the x-ray showed that the thigh was severed. Obviously he had been left after he had touch with a car. He must have suffered very much. A surgery is a risky thing with an uncertain outcome. They told us that the best was to redeem him. He was in the cage under anesthesia, and looked so peaceful. It was very difficult to abandon him. But the vet said he could feel the caress in anesthesia. He would be going to sleep more easily and should suffer no longer.
He leaves a big gap and we miss him very much. The other animals at the feeding site will miss him too, especially Opachen and Tony, and also the one-eyed Lilly, with whom he shared every tasty treat. Now he’s resting under the large olive tree.
unfortunately I must announce full of sadness and bewilderment, that Max has gone over the rainbow bridge on Tuesday 06.07.2010 absolutely unexpectedly for me at this time. Unfortunately, we could not help his problem with his lung despite the best medical treatment. He had still a very nice time with us.
Max will be very grateful to you for your help.
In great sadness
In the clinic we and the veterinaries fought almost a week for him – until we had to let him walk over the rainbow at 21st of Oct. 2010. His death makes us infinitely sad, because it would have been most likely to prevent.
Apparently he had been beaten on the head so hard that irreparable damage had arisen. One day, he fell again and could not get up. The vet has advised us then, to redeem him, what we have done with a heavy heart. All who cared for him so touching, thank you very much. We hope that you, little Samurai, every now and then will look down on us from dog’s heaven! Rest in peace.
