firstly...ruby is going out on trial with dave our vet tomorrow. hopefully things go well...but he has a couple of bitchy cats so we will have to wait and see. i am really hoping this works out well. the best home for ruby is with a great vet who will be right on top of all of her medical needs. she is already developing arthritis in her elbow joints, good pain control will be absolutely necessary as she grows. hope is floating for ruby.
our newest littlest saint is here...squirt the turtle. since i highly doubt that he/she knows his/her name (esp. since it was the good folks at surrey animal care who recently named him/her and because we already have our own unique squirt..the door is open for unisex names for our new addition to saints. feel free to suggest a new name for this wet little one.
agnes the new wrecked little bulldog is here..and can i just publically say what i am sure surrey couldn't actually say when they thankfully picked up this stray....,..god damn fucking bastards who not only bred her to death but starved her of both food and affection....i know whoever had her hit that poor babe on the head when she desperate for love tried to hump them because she cringes when i go to touch her head. she is missing most of her hair from untreated life long skin infections (until surrey got her and started her on meds.) you disgusting example of the human race allowed this dog to suffer for all of her life so you could make money off the puppies she had. and every puppy you bred and sold, will have the same horrid health problems, the same horrific conformation...the same giant vet bills that their poor mother needed but never once got. fucking asshole backyard/puppy mill breeders...may you all rot in hell.
agnes is most likely palliative...mammary tumors and a nasty growth on her foot..her skin is foul, her eyes and teeth are totally fucked up...she literally is god awful ugly...but she is a very, very, very sweet girl.
welcome to saints honey....we will take good care of you.
and the sad news....
we lost desi today. she has been teetering on the edge since a year ago when i almost put her down. but she stayed on the good edge of enjoying her life until today when she crashed and said she was done. i could not be with her...my car was boxed in at the cabin by the septic equipment so renee took her and held her and made sure she passed gently and with love. ahh desi you were one strong and determined cat and such a lovely little soul. rest in peace des...we will all miss you, you were a very great little girl.
