I love Patches. I love him so much. We have obviously bonded since I rescued him way back in early October. I am constantly second guessing my choice, but I know in my heart he is better off. He has a debilitating disease. But he allows me to pet him, brush him, and hold him for moments. Then I see what pain he is in, day in and day out. He cries just looking at the food he cannot eat. So I will make the appointment this week, and won't speak of this again. Thank you to all of you that have supported me making this decision and those that support me now. I am also thankful to those of you that recommended me getting this second opinion. It was the right thing to do. I also want to thank those of you for calling in to donate - Laurie H., Nancy, Liz and Pat. I had them rip up your credit card numbers, as the bill was $50 and I paid it from a rebate Visa card I had received.
On to other news. LOOK who was adopted!!! The girl that took Stan a few days ago, called and said, if you can get the other two at that location, Stan's brother Stevie, who I had TNR'd two weeks ago, and Stewie, the black kitty that head butts me until I put his food down on Short Street!, I will take them! So sure enough, Saturday morning, I grabbed them. :) Did I get lucky, or what? This girl works for the same hospital as I do - you just never know, eh?
That makes ..... OVER 80 cats I've rescued and found homes for THIS YEAR! But who's counting? :)
Now we must get Buttons, Buddy, Nora and Violet a home! I can then get Parsley, Prince, and his two cohorts off the street and into warmth before the winter sets in. Please spread the word!
PS, Great news on Francie, she is fitting right in to her new home!
Have a great day!
