Thank you Judy,
I AM trying to connect with them, but it feels like a sham. I do love them, and want to develop that bond, but Im just not sure how. Its too hot to take them anywhere we cant be outside, and I think Im kinda paranoid that if they leave the house, something bad might happen. I have a sick cat, and its almost more than I can accept. My beloved vet told me I have to trust my instincts, but Im not sure those are that sharp. My Ruffie might still be here if I did that. Maddie looks so sweet in her pics. I think you live alone, so I do hope you find another friend to fill your home and your heart soon, or as it is destined.
