We have a cat on hold at the shelter, a former feral I've been training to do high-five and jump through a hoop and she feels safe with me.
She won't replace my little girl, but I'm glad we have the chance to give her a good home. So many of my "students" disappeared from my life completely after they were adopted.
How long is long enough to wait? I feel like I've been mourning since May. I guess the big question is how soon we can eliminate the urine smells.
Been watching my kitty go downhill from kidney failure over the course of months. Probably ending her suffering tomorrow. No more pain for her. No more cleaning up puddles, daily medicine, and checking to see if she's still breathing. So much of our lives have revolved around her in the past six months. Going to really feel her absence.
She's slept next to me in bed almost every night for 15 years. Tonight will likely be the last time she's there next to me.
