thank god laura found him at 8:15 tonight cuz i wouldn't have noticed him until tomorrow morning...what time did you leave him and his stuff piled next to our junk so he blended in so well? i hope it wasn't too many hours ago but i think maybe it was.
i am sorry he gets urinary crystals and he pees on your carpet sometimes. i am sorry it is hard for your dog to have to eat his food away from where ever spunk happens to be. i am sorry you work full time and don;t have time or energy to deal with him. i am sorry he is de-clawed and not always very nice and i am sorry your daughter dumped him on you but two wrongs don;t make a right.
i have almost 90 animals at saints, and i work a full time job away from here so i can afford to pay for the huge mortgage, and hydro and heating so they have a decent place to live. i too have a family except i am so busy looking after everyone else's failed responsibilities, i rarely get to see mine and i miss them....i get tired of cleaning up pee and poop sometimes too and don't have alot of time or energy either. i am not overly fond of getting bit by unhappy cats and dogs trying to make the adjustment here. i currently have poop on my leg cuz spunk couldn't hold it anymore and pooped as soon as i took him out of the cage. i can't go and have a hot bath cuz spunk is currently frightened and inside my 4 foot bathroom with his bed inside my now unusable bathtub because that was the only private and quiet space i had left to offer to him.
i would like the common courtesy of being able to make a choice here...to say: i am sorry but we are full. i am tired and i am broke, i have too many animals and not enough time and not enough space to squeeze in one more unhappy six year old cat with a bunch of issues who actually had a home of his own.
yes i will look after your cat. yes i will treat him with the utmost respect. yes i will actually fall in love with him too.
but i am doing it because i wasn't given a choice.

ps to everyone else...darla is crashing. she started with a nasal discharge yesterday and we put her on baytril right away. but darla is ancient and darla has a very bad heart and i think she is starting congestive heart failure with a secondary pneumonia brewing away. i gave her the abx, lasix, and pain meds tonight and hope we are ok until the morning. and then i will call and beg a vet appointment and see what options they can offer for her.
sorry spunk, you came at a bad time, i don;t have alot of time to make you feel safe right now.
