i got a call on a cat a couple of weeks ago,,,the kids are grown and gone, the parents now want to travel and they didn't expect the cat to live so long. i offered a couple of suggestions but they were not what was wanted and i was at work and just didn't want to deal with it so i said call me in a week and i will think about it...i think i hoped the cat would just go away.
a week later the phone rang again just i was pulling into my underground parking...the cat still needed to come, i was in a hurry so i said no, too many cats being killed in the shelters. she said she understood but could i help guide her thru how to euthanize. i said i couldn't, she said, oh, i know you don't do it but can you tell me how to go about it?
i tell you my heart was in turmoil..i had this panic inside and just said, no i am sorry, i really can't.
i hung up the phone, parked my car and took the elevator up to my office. as soon as i got to my desk, i phoned her back and said i changed my mind, i would take the cat and to bring him to the sanctuary on saturday.
saints welcomes bobbi, a cat i should have stuck by my no to...i hope he does ok here, and i hope i can do right by him, and i hope this wasn't the wrong decision...i hope for many things, but mostly, just that he can be happy.
welcome bobbi...you are in because i was having a weak moment....i have a lot of those.
