Jump on that Emotional Rescue Rollercoaster with me! Heeeeeeeeerreeee we go:
After posting about the Mom and kittens yesterday, I'm THRILLED to say that I'm rescuing the entire little family tomorrow morning!!! They are going to Abbey Cats Rescue and I know they'll be taken care of beautifully.
To add to my bliss, a FOREVER HOME has come forward for Willow the 11 year old Siamese!!! There were so many wonderful people involved with this little old lady and I can't tell you how incredible it feels to be rescuing her tomorrow and placing her into a forever home.
Sliding downhill on the rollercoaster now....
I gave authorization this morning to our vet to euthanize "Boo". We rescued little Boo last year on December 28th. He was never healthy, and had been in and out of the vets for more than a month. We did everything we could for him: viral testing, x-rays, IV, and more IV....We never really knew what he died from. But at the end his little body couldn't take any more and he gave up.
The worst part was telling the sweet foster Mom. She loved him and was back and forth to the vet a million different times. She syringe fed him, loved him, wiped his chin. After all that, it still wasn't enough. Shit.
Going around the loop-da-loop...
My little Doodle was adopted two nights ago. (Yes, again!) I completely loved this family and although I miss him horribly, I couldn't be happier for my little "Bug". I have to admit, that I was secretly hoping it wouldn't work out. In fact, I announced to David last night, "IF Bug comes back...we're keeping him." I crossed my arms over my chest and stood firm. David *sniffed* cautiously.
So my hair is cut and my roots are covered. I never really got to relax as my cell phone kept ringing during the entire appointment. At least I feel better. I'm ready to jump off the rollercoaster tonight and get a good night's sleep.
Despite it all - I wouldn't want to be doing anything else.
