Animal Lover

I'm a sucker for animals.

How is it that a cat that I've known for less than 24 hours can get me to sob? Well, I took the kitty to CAP (Citizens for Animal Protection) this afternoon. The kitty was so sick that they suggested putting her to sleep. At about 3 months old, the kitten had a severe upper respiratory problem that caused her face to swell so that she could barely see. She also had mange and some other weird things going on. She hadn't eaten anything. If you read my earlier blog entry about this cat, you may be thinking Gosh, this does not sound like the same cat. Well, I'm such an animal lover that I just saw this sweet kitty and wanted it all to be okay. Instead, I'll go pick up Little K from school soon and then we're going to play outside with all 5 of our kitties... and be thankful that they are healthy.

Until the next nap time...

PS - I can't stress enough the importance of getting your cats spayed or neutered. Even if they're not your cats, you can get them fixed at SNAP on Durham (near I10) for little investment and as soon as they're healed, release the cats outdoors. You can take this small step to correct the problem of cats being neglected and over-populating. Okay. Off my soap box now.

How is it that a kitten I've never met can make me well up?? That makes us both crazy cat ladies I guess!! I am going to go home tonight and hug Una and Thor like there is no tomorrow. Thanks for caring enough to help, and for getting on the soap box in an effort to help reduce the number of homeless pets.
