Thank you for your post. I stopped visiting this forum after awhile because I realized it made me too sad ,reading about everyone's pain I could not get past my own.
I adopted a little 8 year old toy poodle a female. At first I was not bonding with her so much but now I am. She has helped me a lot, because she fills the void. She sleeps with me and so I don't need the stuff animals anymore. Also she sits in his spot on the sofa next to me! It was so empty here without him and she has helped me a lot.
Unfortunately after i adopted her I found out she has a lot of health issues because apparently she had heartworms for many years and they destroyed her heart and lungs. I am working closely with the vet to help her. Its been really expensive, I'm out close to $2000 US in less than 3 months I have owned her! I am glad I got her because I am taking good care of her and giving her a good quality of life.
the damage to her pulmonary artery is permanent though so she is on severl medications. She gets out of breath very easily, just running up a flight of stairs. Anyway looks like she has had many puppies and was used in a breeding operation. I guess they dumped her when she could not give birth anymore, probably because she could not breathe well.
Anyway your kitty looks adorable! It is so so nice that you took the time to read about my Andy. I think about him still every single day, I miss him terribly and I still cry from time to time. It just was not fair what happened to him, I guess. I had a dream that he was just lost and not dead. If it was a sign from the heavens, it was not a good sign because he was dirty and skinny in my dream when I found him.
Well all the best to you and I totally appreciate your reply!
