That is very sad, but her last few weeks were with someone who cared for her, and who knew when it was time to let her go.  :hug:

You did what you were fated to do - give comfort in the last days.  Better than the suffering the cat would have had in the wilds.  Well done, You could do no more.[size=78%] xxxxx[/size]

Just re-read your first post, though a sad tale, you extended her life long enough to let her know (or remind her)  life could be good, she was loved and cared for in her final days, she was a clever girl finding you, be content you answered her call, well done and take care,  :hug::bouquet:
RIP Tabitha

God rest her. I'm so glad she found you in her last hour.

Thank you all so much for your kind words. Just wish we could have had longer with her.

We made the decision yesterday to return to the rescue and offer a home to one of the kittens they have there. When we took old Tabby there we visited her regularly while they tried to build her up. A young female suspected to be in kitten was admitted on the same day. She gave birth just 2 days later to 6 tiny kittens. All survived though they are smaller than they should be. My daughter held the kittens several times during our visits and loved them.

There is one kitty left. All the others have homes including mum. So that little kitty once at the desired weight will come home to us. We spent a lovely hour with them yesterday on the rescue lawn all safe in their playpen. Hopefully a positive to come out of the sad tale of old Tabitha Twitchit. Thought I would share it with you.

A wonderful way to honour Tabitha's memory.
